Transmission Problems

Asked by Mar 22, 2015 at 12:44 AM about the 2011 Ford F-150 Lariat SuperCrew

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Ok, like i am driving on highway and feel the transmission downshift and wrench light
came on. Stopped, killed engine and restarted. Rough jerk when put in drive. Seems like
its stuck in 3rd or 5th gear and speedometer does not work.
I wonder if its a electric problem or transmission problem.

Could be a trans shift solenoid like you said. Best to have it looked at, so someone can inspect and pull the codes since you said the wrench light is on.

Well, I did not drive it Sunday and got in it to take it to shop to check out and it has ran fine. I did not go to shop as there seems to be no problem now. Perhaps it healed itself or was just mad at me Saturday. We will see if it happens again.

Well truck sarted acting up again so am taking it to shop to day and grabbing my wallet.

Did you find out what was happening with your truck?? My husbands 2011 F150 sounds like it could have the same problem but instead of downshifting its jumping to a higher gear will be in 1st and jumps to 5th and the spedometer stays at zero. Happened once and then drove fine for a week or so and then did it again.

I took mine to shop and it was an electric valve in transmission. Cost about 600. Labor, oil, filter. I want to say valve was in neighborhood of 200. Good luck

Loriann01...I'm having same issue with my truck...goes from 1st to 5th..did you find out anything?

Hi I am just now having the same issue with my 2011 f150. It shifts from 1st to 5th and wrench comes on and speedometer reads zero. Or now it will just get stuck in first. And its intermittent. Anyone know what's going on?

Thanks. This thread describes the exact problem I'm having. The OP said it was an electric valve in the transmission. Did anybody have any other result?
