Hi all, I've just come across this forum and hopefully someone might have some advice for a problem I have with my auto box. It works ok but as it seems to have a judder/wobble that I can feel through the car. It's mainly as it gets to the point where it is changing gear from first to second but I can feel it at other odd times also. It seems to get worse as the oil gets hotter. It's done 17500 miles. I've had the ecu updated and set back to factory settings and also taken it to a transmission specialist who couldn't find a fault. Also does anyone elses C Max accelerate like a scalded cat? I have to use a very light foot to control it at low speeds otherwise I stand a chance of hitting something. The wierd thing is it runs out of steam if I put my foot down too hard like going uphill, I still have to use a very light foot. It doesn't help the fuel economy though, I find it pretty thirsty at around 27mpg.

that sort of thing is the adjustment on the band brakes for the G/Box I would have thought but if the transmission (Auto gearbox I presume)specialist can't finf a problem, well don't know

Thanks for your reply Richard, the specialist [auto and manual] was supposed to scan the box, don't know how they do that but it cost me 40. He also took it for a ride, me too perhaps, and couldn't feel any problem. It does seem better on some days than others, maybe the bands are the answer, is that a big thing to check out?

Not certain how they are controlled with the ford gearbox
On the older ZF / Allison ones that I knew anything about you could adjust them with a spanner
