problem #2

Jul 012017


  • Automatic transmission
  • 99,000 miles


When driving and reach 45 MPH my car starts to cut out and chug, but if I give it gas it will go back into normal driving mode. At a higher speed for instance interstate or highway when I reach about 60 MPH it will chug a little but the ABS and Skid light come on at the same time. I have taken it the Ford dealership of course they want to charge and arm and leg to do a diagnostic and I have taken it to a transmission shop they have put their machine on it and they find nothing. I have heard a lot of complaints of people having the same issue and some have even dropped 3k into it and it didn't solve the problem. Any advice would be wonderful right now.

MKX 3.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 59,900 miles

So my MKX was so bad upon acceleration or going up hill---it hesitated or felt like transmission was slipping.

Had it tested & took to transmission service. they put in a new transmission in Dec. 2015. So in 2016, it started to do the EXACT SAME THING. I took it to the transmission place & they said they couldn't detect anything. Our auto service company couldn't find anything wrong. Now it hesitates when accelerating & I feel as though no one wants to have any part of finding the problem. Don't know what it is either! Help!
