    Maybe this is beating an old thread. I by no mean am saying let’s repeat what’s been said 100 different ways on here. Much of what’s said is gold and just not even read, followed by some butthead coming by and asking someone to teach them which way they need to turn the wrench, even with the...

    21 Explorer XLT whine while shifting

    As the title suggests ..The car barely has 2000KM and makes a whining noise when the car shifts, specially 2-3 and 3-4 gear. It is audible and can also be felt but the camera fails to pick it up accurately (or it is difficult for someone to differentiate through a video clip). It seems to reduce...

    2020 XLT Transmission Issues, Post-TSB

    So, our XLT started lurching and clunking during downshifting, at less than 9,000 miles. Took it in to the local dealership. They confirmed that it was covered by the piston snap ring TSB.
