Asked by Aug 21, 2014 at 03:18 PM about the 2006 Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2006 ford crown vic police interceptor and last year my transmission started
slipping and it got so bad that it needed to be completely rebuilt. Now, It has started
slipping again almost exactly a year and 3 months. I checked the fluids and for any leaks.
Nothing. Is there a reason it is going out again?

You'll have to talk to your mechanic who rebuilt the trans? Did you only have a year warranty? How is the fluid level?

Yes because I bought it off a used car lot and I have no idea who they sent it to to do the rebuild. But the fluids are spot on. Not over or low.

Your Crown Victoria has a heavy duty transmission because of the Police Interceptor package. It is possible that regular duty parts (non-police package) were used. If you had the tranny fixed under an extended used car warranty I can almost guarantee they fixed it last year but didn't rebuild it. Rockauto.com has your transmission for $1300 + core + shipping. If it were me and the car is in otherwise good condition I'd consider replacing the transmission. Even if you have a shop do the replacement it'll cost around $2000. The bad news is police cars are often driven very hard so their life span is generally shorter as a result. Weigh the pros and cons but I wouldn't fool with a transmission that's already been repaired at least once. I think you'll be better off in the long run. HTH. -Jim
