Did You Hear About Ford Trucks' Delay Due to 10-Speed? Not True

Last week the news that the Ford Raptor and F-150 were being delayed due to the new 10-speed transmission co-designed by Ford and GM was tempting. GM-Trucks considered bringing that news story to our readers, but when possible, we like to keep the news upbeat and not dwell on minor negative issues. We also didn't have any source from Ford on the matter, so we would have had to trust what others were saying. We're glad we held off. It turns out the news wasn't true.

 

TechTimes printed a correction and points out that the essence of the story, that the trucks were not shipping, is just wrong. They are, and were at the time of the story. The new F-150s and Raptors are arriving at dealers already. Mike Levin of Ford is credited with issuing the formal statement from Ford on the matter, correcting what many reported.

Mini's & Fiat's are too.. girlish.


Considering that GM and Ford are in bed together when it comes to transmissions...

Well that is certainly going to throw a wrench in the Chevy vs. Ford arguments. "Your transmission is terrible...oh, wait...it is the same transmission I have." "Nevermind" :dunno:

Lets forecast some complaints with future 10 speed. Was heading to town with wife and got stuck behind someone doing 50 mph. Finally got chance to pass and floored it and it shifted violently from tenth to fifth. It was violent boys and threw wife back in seat so sudden it ruined her hairdo. Even worse it vibrated and chattered shifting from fifth to eighth. Pulled back in lane and let off and it clunked shifting into ninth and then hit tenth with a pronounced Bang.

Way too much going on for a ten speed. It's all about fuel economy, so whether it's a 4-6-8-or 10 speed, I don't think it matters. My '08 5.3 runs awesome and prolly gets close to the same mpg as new machines but with less to break down. And a less expensive repair if it does

Well I called dealer complaining and he said bring it down. Dealer could find no faults or codes on computer and tech took a five minute ride and reported it appears fine. Man oh man I wish I had my 6 speed back!!. Yeah it was a little quirky but nothing like this new ten. 56,000 and a wife ready to divorce me .

Wouldn't trust it. I have an "08" Arcadia with a 6 speed and Ford also purchases that same trans for some of it's SUVs. In 100K miles it's been nothing but trouble. Had to be repaired 9 times of which 2 of them was a total rebuild and GM is well aware of the problem but won't do anything about it. If they can't get a 6 speed right how are they going to get a 10 speed right????

An ex coworker had an Acadia as well and he had a good bit of transmission trouble also.

I've heard horror stories about the new transmissions, i've also heard a lot of praise coming from people who are purchasing aftermarket tunes for their silverados... Maybe it's the tune GM is putting on their vehicles.
They might be tearing up their own transmissions trying to meet EPA regulations and crap like that.

If auto makers could make any existing technology meet upcoming numbers from EPA, they would not be changing things. If they could get a CVT to be less mechanical than it is, that is where the gains are to be made. I hope both GM and Ford are aware that they will need to properly instruct the customer on how a 10 speed transmission works. If you think a 6 speed shifts a lot, a 10 speed shifts 4 more times on every start off. Customers are going to have to learn to ignore the shifts.

Holy gears Batman. I thought 10 speeds were still off in the future. If geared correctly that could make a great towing transmission, at least I would think.

      I have a 2010 Chevy Silverado 1500 2 wheel drive 4.3l v6 and the transmission went out yesterday. I was wondering what transmissions are interchangeable with my truck. Please help. 
    • By Shawn Dutton
      Sorry if this seems long winded but I want to provide as much info as possible.
       
      Just picked up a 2019 Silverado 1500 custom. Has the 4.3 V6 with the 6 speed transmission (6L80 I believe)
       
      The truck had 99 miles on it. Currently around 2500.
       
      No issues out of the gate, after about a week of driving I noticed a very delayed shift I think it was from 1-2 or 2-3. The engine revved 1-2k high RPM than normal before shifting.
       
      a few days later while on the highway (cruise set at 75mph) out of no where the RPM’s spiked as if it had downshifted. There was no additional load on the engine to cause this, like going up or down a hill. This happened a few times.
       
      I called the dealership immediately and brought the truck to them a few hours later. Got a loaner for a few days while they looked over it.
       
      They called me to come pick it up, said the tech noticed a little bit of rough shifting and said they “re-set” the shifting points. Since it was an intermittent problem for me I don’t think it arose for them.
       
      So I took the truck home, no problems. My wife drove it to work that same night and the same problem happened again. This time the engine light came on.
       
      I scanned the codes this morning and the ECM showed P0700 (transmission control system
      the TCM showed P2714 pressure control solenoid D performance/stuck off.
       
      So back to the dealer it goes, waiting for them to bring me a loaner this time.
       
      I was was told by a dealer technician that GM has been having them put a different type of transmission fluid in some of these trucks due to issues with the torque converter. But I guess if a solenoid is stuck it could be due to a fluid issue as well? Just speculating.
       
      I’m curious if anyone else has had similar issues. I haven’t had much luck finding anyone else online with the same problem. Which is guess is more of the reason I’m posting this, in case there’s someone else lost like myself. I will keep this updated when I get further down the road with the dealership.
       
      I get that there are fluke problems that can arise, but this is a bit irritating considering it’s a brand new vehicle. I will say that the dealership I’m working with has been extremely supportive and not trying down play anything I’m complaining about.

      Hope nobody minds, but I'm going to start up a Quick Reference Guide for common parts/fluids/bulbs for the T1 HD trucks.  I'll try to keep it updated if anything changes.  If a mod wants to sticky it, I'm down for that too.

      my transmission when I disconnect the cooler tube on the top of the radiator to go to the transmission no transmission fluid comes out and it's showing a code P O 894 I just recently had the transmission rebuilt it's got about a hundred sixty thousand miles on it when I had the transmission rebuilt it had 130000
    • By bigskyboarder
      I'm trying to buy a 2004 Silverado 1500hd with the 6.0 and 4l80e. When test driving the transmission would shift through all the gears fine but if you let off the gas as soon as the rpms hit 2000 they would drop to 1500 to 1000 and there would be a loud grind/whine until you tapped the gas again. I'm assuming it's the transmission, maybe the torque converter. Any help would be great so I can figure out if the transmission would have to be rebuilt or if it's something simpler to fix
