Transmission Fault

24 September 2012 - 04:03 PM


last month faulty turbo...this month transmission fault.

on top of everything --long list of serious issues,no help whatsoever from ford etc-

Now as Ive been driving today,transmission fault came up on computer and car went into limp mode.

Stopped car,turned off engine,left for a few mins and seemed to be ok.

Anybody had any similair probs,Im pretty much sick to the back teeth with problems and how no one wants to help paying for the problems.


Whole List Of Problems.

Ive had to join this website really as a last resort(only for some help-not because i dont like it)

I have a ford s max,4 yrs old..2008,66k on the clock.

To date Ive had 2 clusters changes,my back parking sensors are not working correctly when its been raining,ive had a new steering rack,3 new innertube sensors,bonnet cable got stuck.And now my turbo charger has packed in,alongside an abs problem as the light always on .

I have had the car 4 yrs and 3 yrs the service was done at dealers-the other (one before last) had complete oil and filter change but no service,(i thought id asked for service but apparently not)

Ford have washed their hands of the turbo prob because of "servicing history"ie one was missed.

The new charger may cost me around 1600 to buy and replace and the car wont pass an mot due to the abs issues.

What can i do-?

Does anyone have any experience on this-money is tight and the said amount could leave me and my family very financially vunerable
