Answered by CarsGuide 10 Jun 2016

We have asked Ford for an outlook on the availability of your diff, but so far haven't had a reply. If the diff is being done under warranty then wait it out, but if it's not and you're going to be charged for the diff I would take the car to a diff specialist and have them fix it.

Answered by CarsGuide 20 Sep 2013

It's most likely a software problem, so you should think about taking back to the dealer to see if they might have a fix available for it. Another possibility we were told about by our auto trans expert, Andrew Williams, is to disconnect the battery and leave it sit overnight or so. There's no guarantee it will work, but that way it might be possible to reset the adaptive learning of the transmission and start from scratch.
