boy thats ironic, when my Explorers in the shop I'm driving my Accord also. I've put over 200k miles on it and it gives me less trouble than this new Explorer.
Wish we could get a copy of 06-23-11 TSB. The tech DVD I have only goes to mid 2006 and the latest applicable TSB is 06-13-1. I know I have some of the other symptoms such as the high idle at cold start.
After four days my Mountaineer is back to the old shift pattern. The updated TSB is worthless. The car goes in next week for the shift solenoid (valve body). I'll keep you updated from there.
Is the dealership doing all this maintenance under the factory warranty? I just don't want them trying to tell me that I have to pay for them to fix this.
Great news! I too wish it stays that way...please update us in about a week and let us know. Do you know if the new parts were 06 or 07 part numbers? My local dealer claims to know nothing about this problem and I'd like to provide as much info as possible on the fix.i just got my car back yesterday. the problem is gone, im really crossing my fingers and hoping it doesnt come back. they said they changed the valve body and shift solenoid.
