    Remanufactured Ford Flex Transmissions 

     

    The Ford Flex was a unique vehicle in that it allowed people to escape the doldrums of owning a minivan, while still enjoying all of the space and practicality of a square sided vehicle. Unfortunately however, Ford Flex transmission problems with the 6F50 transmission led to a number of drivability issues. Installing a remanufactured Ford Flex transmission is the most permanent solution to these issues. So let’s see if that is right for you. 

     

    Common Ford Flex Transmission Problems  

     

    Slipping, Erratic Shifting, Harsh Forward or Reverse Gear Engagement: Some of the most common 6F50 transmission problems are slipping between gears, erratic up or down shifts, or a hard slam when the 6F50 transmission engages Drive or Reverse. There are a number of design flaws in this transmission, and any one of them could be causing these symptoms. 

     

    Another common problem is overheating. This happens when the moving parts inside the transmission are creating more friction heat than the ATF can remove. The most common cause of this condition is towing heavy loads, driving in stop/go traffic, or on mountain roads where the transmission has to shift a lot. 

     

    How to Solve Ford Flex Transmission Problems 

     

    Solution A: Buy a Used Ford Flex Transmission  

    Going to the local junkyard and picking up a used Ford Flex transmission might seem like the cheapest and fastest option. But you need to consider the fact that you don’t know what the actual shape of the internal components are. It could very well be on the verge of transmission problems of its own, which would leave you in the exact same predicament that you’re in now. And that 30 – 90 day junkyard warranty probably won’t cover labor charges to install the replacement transmission if something goes wrong. 

     

    Solution B: Buy a Rebuilt Ford Flex Transmission 

    Getting a rebuilt Ford Flex transmission would probably seem like a better idea. However, a lot of mechanics and transmission shops will only rebuild your Ford Flex transmission back to its original factory specifications. Which means that all of those factory design flaws are still going to be inplay. And that rebuilt transmission warranty might only be good at certain shops, which could do you no good if you have transmission problems while you’re traveling. 

     

    Solution C: Buy a Remanufactured Ford Flex Transmission  

    If you want to get the most service life out of your little luxury SUV as possible, then you really should consider a remanufactured Ford Flex transmission from Street Smart Transmission. Each one is completely disassembled and re-remanufactured, so nothing is left to chance. Theyre also modified to correct the factory design flaws, which will greatly extend the service life. Plus, you get a 3-Year/Unlimited Mile Nationwide Warranty. This will cover parts and labor charges at any licensed repair shop in the Continental United States, giving you a lot more flexibility and coverage.
