OTC announces new products for Ford, Lincoln and Mercury vehicles.
A 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis with a 4.6L engine using a 4R70W transmission is at a general-repair shop for weeks. The problem is an intermittent engine surge on top of the 1-2 shift when hot. The perception is an engine problem. Eventually, the idea of the converter clutch coming on was being considered. Without much testing, the valve body and solenoids were replaced yet the problem persisted.
One of the best-selling vehicles produced by Ford Motor Co. is the Ford Explorer/Mercury Mountaineer SUV. These vehicles started production using the BorgWarner 4405 transfer case and had a huge production run.
