Hi All

Hi,
I am a newbie here and I have a question. There seems to be a lot of transmission knowledge on here and I am having a problem.
I do not own a t-bird or Lincoln just a 06 ford e-150 van. I do have quite abit of mechanical knowledge but really need some help,
Not sure what trans I have but do know it is a Q code. It has always been fine until a few days ago. It started to slip. Dropped the pan and found the normal metal dust on the magnet and fluid was a little dark but not bad and not burnt. Changed the filter. added mercon-v and found no difference. Reverse is fine but when in drive it is a little slow to engage, but does, and will move,but as soon as I get up a little speed, it starts to slip. Does anyone have any advice or recommendation on what else I can do. I hate to think it has died as the fluid looked good and there were no big pieces in the pan. Please help and thanks

Does it slip in all gears, or just certain gears? Does fluid temperature (hot/cold) make any difference? Do you notice any difference in manual 1 or manual 2?

well Brandon,
it starts to slip before it even changes to second gear.Didn't really want to push it and cause more damage. No difference whether it's hot or cold. and not totally sure but believe it is the same if manually shifted into first

It's very possible 1st gear/the forward clutch could be slipping. If you 're comfortable with it and are able to get it up to 35 MPH or so to have it shift into overdrive, the forward clutch releases. If you don't have any slipping at this point then that's the problem, and you'll need a rebuild.

It's not uncommon for excessive heat to cause premature clutch friction failures due to friction modifiers in the fluid breaking down more quickly.

BTW - Q code is a 4R75E trans, and on a further side note, your van was assembled down the street from me.

Hey Brandon,
Here is what I found.
Better cold than hot.
Slips in all gears.
A little better when shifted manually.
At about 30 mph, it will shutter a little then then it hooks up and seems to be fine.
Sounds exactly like you described.
So I guess this means a rebuild right?

when I took it up the road and turned around to come back, I didn't think I was going to get back. Pulled it down into second and it hooked up enough to get up to 30 then the od came in and was up to 50 in no time.

I have never rebuilt a Transmission before but have done several engines. Do you think this would be a job that I could handle or should I seek a pro?

Definitely a fried forward clutch. I've never pulled the rotating assembly out of a trans before so I can't speak to the special tools needed or expertise required. I'll let those more knowledgeable chime in.
