The AP (via NPR) reports that Ford plans to put six-speed automatic transmissions (AT) into 98 percent of its North American vehicles by 2012.
Ford and GM must have had a good crystal ball, because this transmission was committed to by them at least four years ago, when gas was cheap. I think Hellhound should get back in the game with a 10 speed Jeep Commander Huffy edition. DSG was invented by Borg Warner – why the hell did it show up first in Europe and not North America? I bet they introduce this transmission into their biggest 4 door sleds and pickups first, then as sales continue to slide, conclude that this tranny was all a waste of time. On a recent GTA-Toronto, Ontario Auto show the Guest that night was a Transmission person who said that more gears only add to the complex of a Automatic Transmission ie in other words more trouble could lie ahead! No one wants to buy a car with a 4 sp transmission unless it is a 65-69 vintage muscle car. Paul Niedermeyer: Ford and GM must have had a good crystal ball, because this transmission was committed to by them at least four years ago, when gas was cheap.
That said, I’m sure there were other reasons for planning the additional cog(s), back when the project began. Just so no one is held in suspense, the 6-speed will also be the base transmission in the Fusion and Milan 4-cyl cars when they launch in early January. Quite often it shfts imaturely cause the engine to lug at lower RPM, and more torque putting thru the tranny bad for both components.


Gear hunting is not a fun thing when u’re drivng it especially some incline and some down hill. Not withstanding the premature wear it can happen, whether it fell inside the Warranty period ( God forbid) or outside the W period. Few days ago a guy with his hood open on a GM Malibu ( i am not very sure) he was very un-impressed as it has no dip stick for his trans, so it could ran dry unbeknownst to him and $2000 more from his wallet.
The yellow gizmo is the solenoid valve, although I thought on mine it was located around the intake manifold. I've owned several Aeros, but this '97 is my first with the 4.0l, and of course the emissions system has evolved over the years, so I haven't delved into it -- no problems yet! Vehicle crash and safety data is provided by NHTSA, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The rugged and reliable 2012 Ford Escape doesn’t offer much in the way of new design, but does pack in some great new technology features along with the best fuel economy in its class.

They are not tough enough to withstand the increased shifting, break down frequently, and are extremely costly to repair.
It just needs to use them in more of its vehicles, and as Mulally works to get rid of unneccessary individual components in Ford vehicles, these engines will almost certainly replace just about all of the old inefficient ones.


Fuel mileage gains are insufficient to pay for the greatly increased out of warranty repairs.
It just needs to be optimized for more torque rather than more horsepower for truck applications.

MyKey technology is standard, allowing owners with teen drivers to set limits on top speed, maximum stereo volume, and set an alert if the driver exceeds 45 mph. Anyway, you can thank the 35mpg fleet average CAFÉ standards for the additional cog.
The optional voice-activated SYNC allows drivers hands-free phone usage, audio-system control, and three-years of SYNC service which provides turn-by-turn instructions and point-of-interest information searches.
The fuel filter is large enough not to restrict air flow.Any carbon breakthru will get caught in the filter, not the valve.
