With that mileage, if ur accelerating in drive and it engages a few seconds or minutes later, probably trans is out. Sorry!


Did u check fluid?


Yes i it fluids were flushed and changed as well as filter

I'm with Mitbek, time for a rebuild or used trans. Is the check engine light on? If so you can pull the codes, maybe some trans related ones. Most ford transmissions don't last over 150K without issues. You got your money's worth IMO.

4R75W transmission with 208,000 miles has served you well. It is likely that the transmission needs to be rebuilt.


Thank you guys for the help
