What's going on with my Ford Econoline transmission?

Ford has issued a recall for 2009-2016 Ford Econoline / E-Series models over a transmission component that could result in a motive power loss issue.

The problem: affected vehicles contain a capacitive discharge weld within a coast clutch component in the transmission. A substandard weld may fatigue and fail, causing the loss of the ability to move the vehicle. All normal engine, braking, and steering functionality is unaffected. Reports indicate that the majority of weld failures occur when torque is highest, which is when the driver attempts to accelerate from a stop.

The danger: an elevated rate of loss of mobility in school bus and ambulance vehicle applications could present a unique risk to passengers or occupants including a loss of mobility in school bus applications may result in the transfer of unchaperoned children when the vehicle is immobilized in a roadway. Loss of vehicle mobility in ambulance applications may result in delay of patient treatment. Ford is unaware of any accidents resulting from this condition.

Suspectd cause: coast clutch capacitive discharge weld (inside transmission).
