At work I was issued (read: not my idea) a new unmarked Ford Explorer in 2004. It only has 12K on it. The transmission is sealed and you cannot even check the tranny fluid level. There is a noticeable delay when I put her into gear (drive/reverse). Usually about three seconds, sometimes up to 5 seconds. Sometimes I get a pretty good jerk when the tranny finally slips into gear. I understand these sealed Ford trannys have a well deserved reputation of being a POS. Anyone have any experience with these? If so; was the dealer/shop actually able to fix it? I know I have to turn her in; I just dont look forward to driving the POS 03 Status in the meantime.
