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

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?

Having same problem!! And mine is also 2011 was stopped at a stop sign, pulled out and it got stuck in neutral!! That's the first time it has got stuck in neutral, it's usually 5th gear and I can fix it by turning the truck off sometimes!! taking it in the morning to find out what's going on!!

@Tiffaney, after talking to a few local mechanics, I took mine into the dealer to have the software updated. After the update, there was a code for the transmission lead frame. Turned out there was a recall on that part, for mine, and it was covered under that recall (no cost). I can't say for sure it fixed my problem, but it hasn't happened since, so I'm hopeful.

When I took mine it was also the transmission lead frame, and yes mine was covered under the extended warrenty for that part alone. I haven't had any issues and it's now been a few months. I was receiving code error p720 and p722 I believe, I will have to double check but those were also signs of that issue
