What's wrong with my Ford Ranger transmission?

There are known issues with Ford Ranger truck transmissions. If your Ranger shudders, shakes or suffers from delays shifting from first gear to second gear, or from second to third, you need to get that fixed ASAP!

There have been issues with a number of Ford transmissions, for example the 4R44E models. The name 4R44E means 4 forward gears, rear-drive platform (or 4WD, with a different tailshaft housing), rated for 440 ft/lb torque (after torque converter multiplication) and electronic shifting. 4R55E is the same but heavier duty and rated for 550 ft·lbs. For the 1995 model year, the A4LD was upgraded to feature full electronic controls, resulting in a new transmission family. The two major versions of this new transmission were the 4R44E and 4R55E. The transmissions are fundamentally similar in design, varying only in the durability of key components based on the type of duty intended for. The 4R44E was used in lighter-duty applications, namely with 4-cylinder or 3.0 L V6 models of the Ford Ranger pickup and the 4R55E was used in heavier-duty applications, specifically with the 4.0 L Cologne V6 used in vehicles like the said Ford Ranger or Ford Explorer.

Ford has announced that 2534 vehicles have been affected by a transmission recall. Ford is recalling certain 2019 Ranger vehicles. The fasteners that attach the transmission shifter cable bracket to the transmission may loosen allowing the transmission to be in a different gear than is ghown by the gear shift lever position indicator. If the gear shift lever position does not match the actual transmission gear, the vehicle could move in an unexpected direction. Additionally, despite selecting "Park", if the parking brake is not applied before the vehicle is exited, the vehicle may roll. Either case presents the risk of crash or injury

Ford has dealt with a series of transmission problems in multiple models, which have led to class action lawsuits and global recalls on vehicles with 10R80 or 10-speed transmission systems. The 10 Speed Ford 10R80 transmission lasts an average of 100,000 to 150,000 miles in unmodified trucks with average applications. Trucks with larger tires, tuning, emissions delete systems and other aggravating factors usually fail much sooner. Transmissions with religious maintenance routines that are used largely for highway miles can last longer in some cases.
