What's going on with my Ford Transit Connect transmission?

In 2021, Ford issued a recall for more than 192,000 of the vans over a transmission-related component.

At risk are model-year 2013-21 Transit Connects with 2.5-liter engine and 6F35 transmission. In affected vehicles, the bushing that attaches the shifter cable to the transmission may degrade or detach. A damaged or missing bushing could prevent the shifter from moving the transmission to the intended gear, increasing the risk of a crash. Ford said it isn’t aware of any related reports of accidents or injuries.

The recall covers 192,080 vehicles in the U.S. and 12,629 in Canada. It applies only to Transit Connect models equipped with a 2.5-liter inline-4 with a 6-speed automatic transmission, or 6F35, for transverse engine layouts. Newer models with the 8-speed automatic are not included in the recall. The 6F35 6-speed was new in 2007 models.

A faulty bushing that attaches the shifter cable to the transmission can degrade or detach, Ford reported. A compromised or missing bushing could prevent the shifter from moving the transmission to the intended gear. If the operator thinks the vehicle is in Park and walks away without any warning in the instrument cluster, the vehicle could roll away.
