Thanks for the post.. please let us know if this has resolved your issue once you have had some time to drive the car. My Flex is at the dealership for the second time in a week, they seem to have no idea at all. They dont seem to be to receptive to what I have found on this forum. I have called Ford directly and opened a trouble call in with them as well so they have this issue on record. They have contacted the dealership directly to work with them.
I was hoping to have someone who has had this issue resolved respond to this post. I would love to have my dealership talk to their technician. If this resolves your issue maybe I can get the info from you..
This is making me very nervous as this is my wife's car and my 2 year old is always with her when this has happened. I hope we can find a fix soon.
I will absolutely provide follow up after they work on my car. The appointment is Thursday, the 26th. They had to order the vehicle speed sensor and turbine speed sensor. I will also be happy to let you know the name of the dealership, the service writer and the transmission tech so your dealer can contact them if they like.
I copied posts from here and the MKS forum and pasted them onto an email and sent to the service writer. I wanted to point out to him that others have had the problem and the range sensor seemed to have been the appropriate remedy. The service writer had the transmission tech read the posts and he disagrees with the range sensor diagnosis. His explanation is that while the sensors have specific names, many service writers do not use the correct terminology - they might SAY range sensor but they MEAN turbine sensor.
So, I think the plan is to replace the vehicle speed sensor and turbine speed sensor on Thursday. If that doesn't fix it, they will replace the range sensor. While I cannot do anything to make this problem occur, it has been acting up 3-4 times a week when I least expect it. It shouldn't take me too long to determine if the work on Thursday fixes the car.
