My letter to Ford motor company is as follows:Ford motor companymain topic: vehicleserviceissuesyour inquiry: my 2005 eddie bauer edition Ford Explorer is having problems with the transmission. It slams into reverse and slips going from 2nd to 3rd gears. I got on the internet to research what could be done about this and was appalled by the staggering number of owners having this same problem. (autobeef. Com) many of them paying the money ($3,000) to have the problem fixed only to find it happens again in few thousand miles. When I saw all those people having the same exact problem that I was having, I thought surely Ford would have done something about this by now. But after searching your website for a recall notice, I found nothing!! can this be right? how can you commercialism selling quality products with problems like this being ignored? if I have the problem fixed (by a authorized dealer), what assurances do I have from Ford, that the problem will not return? I'm not a fan of class action lawsuits, but it seems this is the only way big corporations listen to the masses anymore. Their response:I regret the circumstances that prompted you to write us. Please be informed that Ford and the national highway traffic and safety administration (NHTSA) work together to proactively identify areas of concern through investigation of consumer and dealership feedback. If a concern is noted, a recall is conducted to remedy a safety or emissions concern in the interest of customer satisfaction and environmental responsibility. However, due to our rigorous safety standards and constant testing, not all issues result in recall or customer satisfaction programs. I am truly sorry that currently, there are no safety or emissions recalls for your vehicle concern. If a program is announced on this specific component, Ford will notify you by mail. On the other hand, please be advised that the projected life expectancy of our vehicle parts is obtained through etc.

I have a 2005 Ford Explorer that has developed a transmission problem. While driving on the highway, the od light started blinking and there is a message that says check transmission. I called Ford customer service and they said I need a new transmission at an estimate o $1800. 00.

I purchased my 2005 Ford Explorer new, I started having problems with the SUV delaying or no shift from park to reverse or drive. It jerks into reverse or drive. It was doing it once twice a month, but it seems to be more frequently now. Also my SUV jumps into gear while my foot is on the brake and I believe this is causing the front tire to burn rubber and wear my tire out quickly. I have taking my car into the dealer for service, and made complaints about this issue, but always told that they could not duplicate the problems. I think this is a major safety issue and should be address ASAP!.

The 2005 Ford Explorer, when shifted into reverse, has a delay then slams into gear and the vehicle lurches rearward. Also, the truck has a delay when shifting through some forward gears as well. The truck will delay or hesitate when shifting through the gears, then slam into the next gear.

Failure Date: 01/13/2010

Shifting hard, reverse started missing then first gear missing. Took to repair shop was told that the transmission is unfixable.

I bought my 2005 Explorer new. I have never been in a wreck. At 13000 miles my transmission started going out and was repaired under warranty. Now at 64000 miles my transmission is jerking into reverse and dragging into 3rd just like before. What really scared me was I was trying to pass a car and when trying to accelerate my car jerked, revved up and then clunked into gear. Thank goodness there wasn't a car coming or I would have been in trouble. I took it in and Ford says they are unaware of any problems. They said I just needed my computer updated. Well $200 later it is still not fixed. The car is still slipping and jerking. My car is not quite 5 years old and there is no reason why my transmission should be going out for the second time. Thank you for looking into this matter.

2005 Ford Explorer, delay or no shift from park to reverse or drive. When it finally does shift into the correct position it seems as if I had pushed the gas fast. It jerks into reverse or drive. It was doing it once twice a month, but it seems to be more frequently, like a couple times a week. I have almost hit pedestrians several times. The transmission has recently started to slip also.

Failure Date: 04/20/2009

My vehicle fails to shift from park to reverse when the brake is applied. There are several clicks and multiple attempts need to be made before the vehicle will shift from park to reverse. This occurs all almost everytime I attempt to place the vehicle in reverse. My vehicle only has 12k miles on it and this should not be happening.

Failure Date: 04/13/2009

2007 Ford Explorer would not shift from park. Had to call a tow truck. We tested it on the tow truck and it still would not shift out of park. After towing it to a repair shop, it finally shifted out of park.

We purchased a 2005 Ford Explorer in may 08 w/38000 mi. On itcarfax, at that time, indicated a new transmission was installed on 2/9/07 @ 27643 mi. Lately the transmission has not been running good so we took it to our mechanic, who tells us it is a 'ticking time bomb' and needs a new transmission ASAP. The car currently has 48953 mi on it. He encourages us to investigate recalls and warranty info. We called the dealership who installed the transmission in 2/07, they said it had not been replaced, but other parts (relating to the trans) were replaced. We requested a copy of the service order faxed to us. Once rec'd, codes and wording are very confusing but we believe it to indicate that the transmission was replaced. Also the service tech we spoke to told us the warranty was a 3 yr/36k mi so a replacement now would not be covered. We believe this transmission has a major defect if, in fact, it was replaced @ 27643 and the new one now has only 21000 mi on it. We called Ford motor CO service dept. Based on their records from the VIN #, they told us the transmission was replaced in 2/07. We were also told that the warranty was changed on the 05 Explorer transmission to 3 yr/75k mi. (why wasn't the length of term changed also?). They also told us that the new transmission did not come with a new warranty of its own it fell under the old warranty. We've had this vehicle for 8 months; weve put 11k miles on it and it needs major repairs that were evident prior to our purchase. Questions remain: did the dealership replace the transmission in 07 or not? if not, what was done to correct the problem and was Ford motor CO. Billed for a new transmission? if it was replaced, why are these transmissions going bad after only 20-25k miles? and why wont Ford stand behind their product?.

Driving home after work all of the sudden transmission over heat alarm comes on, then white smoke out the back on my truck. 2005 Ford exploder xl modelI stopped waiting a while and then was able to get home. Took in for service and yes the transmission is gone. At 140000 k. Not the bad part is that this is the 2nd transmission I have put in this truck. The first one was at 75k just out of warranty, my dealer at the time of the first one said point black' take it to a 3rd party transmission place as we would charge you too much, so there you have it 2005 truck and I am on my 3rd tranny. Can not sell as will only get 60 % of what I owe! now I only drive around home not to work so much for built Ford tough, driving my new kia to work just sad!.

2 days ago the transmission on my 2005 Explorer began to hesitate between 2nd and 3rd gear. The next morning while on my way to a service station, it slipped out of 2nd and never found 3rd. . . The engine just revved up. I could shift on the column so I did that to get the vehicle to the dealership. After running some tests, the dealer told me that 3rd gear was 'gone' and that I needed a new transmission. This is a 3 year old vehicle and I've spent 1. 5 years of those three in the desert. . . There is no reason that the transmission should blow after 3 years regardless of the fact that for 1. 5 years of it, it wasn't driven regularly. Ford needs to own up to this and take care of it's customers. This will be my last Ford.

The car rpms increased while stepping on brake, car has surged forward on at least 3 occasions and one time it surged backwards when in reverse and hit a pole, even though foot was on the brake. Car has died on several occasions while attempting to accelerate. Driver side window has failed several times, despite having the master switch replaced.

Failure Date: 02/06/2006

I brought this car on January 23, 2006. When I brought the car the dealership told me that my first payment would be on March 22,2006. However I received a payment request two weeks after I brought the Explorer. The salesperson completely lied to me. He didn't explain anything I wanted him to. And for worse the Explorer transmission does not function properly. When I put the Explorer in reverse the transmission make a terrible sound. Icontact the dealership and they told me it wasn't their problem. I want to cancel the purchased of this car it is just giving me problems.

On slight incline, vehicle will roll while in gear or it hesitates to engage in gear when shifting from park. Vehicle has been to the dealer for this same complaint many times. Factory rep. Says nothing wrong all models do the same. I have never owned a vehicle, unless equipped with standard transmission that would perform this way. What can I do?.

Beryllium amount of valence electrons. Beryllium (Be) doesn't need 8 valence electrons to have an octet (Be often only needs 4). If you're not sure you have the best Lewis structure for BeCl 2 you can calculate the formal charges. You'll find the Be in BeCl 2 only has 4 valence electrons. For the BeCl 2 Lewis structure there are a total of 16 valence electrons available. A valence electron is an outer shell electron and may participate in the formation of a chemical bond. Ok but how many valence electrons does an atom of Beryllium have? Beryllium has two valence electrons. How many valence electrons does boron have? You must recognize that the second principal energy level consists of both the 2 s and the 2 p sublevels and so the answer is three. In fact, the number of valence electrons goes up by one for each step across a period until the last element is reached. There are two ways to find the number of valence electrons in Beryllium (Be). The first is to use the Periodic Table to figure out how many electrons Berylli. Beryllium's atomic number is 4. So electronic configuration of Be is 1s² 2s². So the valency is 2 as it has 2 electrons in the outermost shell.

This a safety concern. While cruising on the highway at 50 mph I intended to pass slower-moving vehicles by accelerating. However, it took the automatic transmission 4-5 seconds to kick-in, and for the Explorer to attain enough speed to safely pass other vehicles, even if the pedal wasfloored. The time interval was too long (other vehicle made with a/t tool only 2-3 seconds), and could cause an accident. I have referred the problem to the dealer and to Ford group philis. Inc. 4 months ago yet but they have not yet found a solution.
