Eventually any vehicle’s transmission, engine, TCM, head gasket, and other mechanical components will break down and either fail, or severely impede performance. Ford or not, all vehicle components are vulnerable to normal wear and tear but if you stay on top of preventive maintenance, normal wear and tear should not affect the driver’s ability to handle a car. However, a car’s transmission allows the driver to control the car, and if a part of the transmission goes bad, or fails altogether, driving can become extremely difficult.
For instance, if the transmission of your Ford develops a problem and the car can’t switch to first gear after brakes are applied then it can create dangerous problems for the driver. The engine may stall at low speeds because the transmission cannot shift into 1st gear. In this situation Ford transmission repair remains the only solution.
Even Ford Cars and Trucks have Transmission Issues
The Ford F-150 has been the best-selling vehicle in Texas since the 1980s. Even though Ford remains one of the most reliable and efficient car manufacturers in the world, transmission problems are not that uncommon in Ford vehicles. When used roughly or extensively, the transmission parts do start to malfunction and can thus create issues for the driver as far as handling the car is concerned. It is for this reason that Ford transmission repair is necessary once you get even a hint that your Ford’s transmission is starting to get mischievous.

Transmission issues run rampant in Ford manufactured vehicles just as they do in other manufacturer’s models. Ford Motor Company has even released many maintenance and transmission service-related updates to help vehicle owners know when to schedule maintenance and help Ford mechanics with clear maintenance schedules and service checkpoints.
Maintenance Prevents Half of Transmission Problems
Prevent future transmission problems by following Ford’s recommended maintenance. Preventive service and maintenance increases your vehicle’s longevity.
- Fuel Type. The manufacturer provides you information about the kind of fuel you should use and the amount of stress you can put on the car.
- Transmission Fluid by Vehicle Model. The transmission fluids recommended for each Ford model are different and thus, it remains important that you make sure that you use the transmission fluids which are recommended by Ford for your vehicle’s specific model year and series.
- Ford Vehicle Service Schedule. Another way to maintain your car better and to keep away from getting your Ford transmission repair every couple of months is by knowing the time when your car needs a checkup.
Ford knows the best fuel for each transmission it churns out and thus, going by what they recommend for your car is the best way to avoid too many Ford transmission repairs.

Usually, the car’s transmission gives you a hint that a part is not working properly before it totally breaks down. If the car is inspected then and not driven, it could save you a ton of money on other repairs causes by the initial problem.
Even if you do not experience any symptoms of a transmission problem while driving then its extremely important that you adhere to Ford’s maintenance schedule (available on their website) for your vehicle model and year. The schedule asks about the stress and mileage you put on your car and the last time your car was in for maintenance and service. With this knowledge, the maintenance schedule should give you an idea about when the car should be checked for any transmission issues.
