problem #3

Contour

  • Automatic transmission
  • 90,000 miles

The transmission shifts hard in first and second gear after the car heats up. It has been in the shop 6 weeks. Solenoid was replaced, drum was replaced and still not fixed.

problem #2

Apr 012008

Contour V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,952 miles

Works fine until the car heats up and then from a stopped position, when it surges into 1st gear. This does not happen in any other gear.

(reported on)

Contour LX V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 91,114 miles

This is a repeat of a problem that I thought Ford had already fixed. Again, while driving on the highway (110-120 kms/hr) the car started rev'ing the engine, accelerating and then shifting hard. This happened after I had just filled the car up (not sure if there's any connection).
