Do you Own a 2021 Ford F-150 With Many Transmission Problems?
In April of 2022, Ford issued a recall for certain 2021 F-150 models that could potentially shift into neutral unexpectedly, while the vehicle is in motion. The affected F-150 models were built between July 28, 2021, and Dec. 20, 2021, this transmission issue could be a huge safety hazard and cause a crash. The problem was allegedly caused by an error in the 2021 Ford F-150 transmission software. The vehicles involved in the recall would incorrectly sense that the transmission fluid pressure was too low and shift into neutral. Ford provided a fix for the problem with a software update and owners of these vehicles received mailed notice. The fix was free for the affected vehicles.

Ford F-150 Transmission Problems and Complaints – Potential Causes
Both automatic and manual transmissions are comprised of many complex parts that must work together to shift gears and and provide power for the vehicle. If any of these parts does not work harmoniously with other parts, the Ford F-150 can rough shift, jerk, hesitate or slip. A slipping problem is more common in an automatic transmission than a manual transmission. The primary cause of slipping in a manual transmission is a damaged clutch. In an automatic transmission, including the Ford F-150 transmission, issues can be caused by;
- Broken gear bands
- Gear wear and tear
- Failing torque converter
- Transmission fluid leaks
- Low transmission fluid
- Burnt transmission fluid
Many transmission issues can be caused by poor maintenance, however, owners of 2017-2021 Ford F-150 trucks complained of some of these issues despite proper maintenance.
