My Windstar recently began having transmission troubles. Especially
at high speeds, it feels like I am going over a rumble strip. It only
lasts for a second and it does not always do it. I cannot reliable
make it happen. My dealership stated I needed a new or rebuilt
tramission but could not tell me what exactly the problem was. Has
anyone else had a similar experience?
You got that right (about the extended warranty).
I didn't get one, and we just had to have the transmission replaced in our
1999 Windstar with less than 40K miles on it. I know of three other friends
who had to have their Windstar transmissions replaced also (various years).
Next time, I'll get the extended warranty. Oh wait - there won't be a next
time for Ford with me...
I also have the same problem on my 1996 Windstar. It's funny how you say it
feels like your riding over rumble strips, because that is the exact feeling
you get. I've just changed the transmission fluid and it seems like it
hasn't gotten any worse, and I'm crossing my fingers and hoping it doesnt
crap out on me one day.
