I have a 2004 Eddie Bauer 2WD Explorer with a 4.6L V8. It has 206k on the clock. It has been a joy to drive and I've taken it on a lot of long, long road trips. I've also been pretty careful on the maintenance. There is one problem that is common with this vehicle, that I was afraid I would have, that I am now having. That is the tranny. This couldn't have happened at a worse time. The day before I took off to take a friend to NY and recover some property from a storage unit, the transmission began acting-up. The computer starting throwing error codes. It had a difficult time shifting out of 1st Gear and OD was deactivated. The codes are P1744, which is related to the torque converter. I have P0745 solenoid error, and P0731, 2, 3, 4, gear ratio errors. I have problems shifting out of 1st Gear, but when it does shift, it is still smooth. 2, 3, and 4 are OK, shifting at normal RPM range and shifting smoothly. Eventually, it will get to where I can't shift out of 1st unless I turn it off and turn it back on. Then it will work again unless I stop 3 times. I guess this thing doesn't like "stop-and-go" driving any more than I do. Before this, the transmission never had any problems that I'm aware of. I've only had it since August, 2016. The behaviour sounds pretty consistent with the problems I have read about related to a servo bore issue where a steel rod wears-out the hole (s) in the aluminum transfer case. This apparently causes various behavioural issues and error codes related to the aforementioned gear shifting, torque converter, and solenoid. If I replace the original servos with new ones made by AJ1E, will that be a permenant fix, or will it buy me time? Even buying time might be worth doing if it buys enough time. I've read a little about this, but I want to read testimonials before I pull the trigger. To anyone who has done this repair, how long can I expect it lo last? Thanks!
