Ok so I have been doing some research but wanted to get some more thoughts on the matter. I searched around the forum but didn't see the exact same issues. -06 with 86K. (5R55S Trans) Issue 1 -Randomly (about 5 times total now) I will start the car (sometimes for the first time that day or 20 min or so after last drive) and I go to out it in to gear and nothing. Now the RPMs will drop when in a drive gear, or reverse, but you can tell the trans is not actually engaging. Couple times I was able to just cycle the shifter and turn off the car and back on and it eventually would go in to gear, but usually with a harsh shift in to gear or would require a few more RPMs (i avoid this as much as I can obviously.) -After speaking with a friend and him speaking with his ford mechanic friend, they suggested I put in to the manual select mode because this usually increases line pressure. This worked the other day when the issue came up again. I put in to manual mode and it went in to gear smoothly then I went in to the desired Reverse. Issue 2 -This has happened maybe 3 times in the 4 months, but when driving ion the highway around 60MPH maybe it feels if it just comes out of gear or down shifts for a quick second then back in. When I feel it I let off the throttle in hopes it will be a little easier and not to harsh going back in to gear. Then the car proceeds to drive fine. I do not know if the two issues are related. The friends Ford mechanic friend is leaning toward a valve body, or maybe the transmission solenoid pack. I have heard a couple times the random chime from the info center, but never see anything displayed, and never when I am having an issue. I know my 01 would occasionally chime and display a message but I never got to see it. That trans, however did go out completely. I wan to avoid another trans swap, or a huge bill, so I am hoping I can team up with my mechanic friend and get to this before I lose the trans completely.
