I am overwhelmed
Drove my car 2 nights ago, got a system error on the dash and on the app - Powertrain malfunction
Drove to ford the day after met with the service dept manager, told me he saw the code - P0868 for Low Fluid Transmission Pressure
Took him for a spin, he could hear unusual sounds, like a whine sound

Told me the transmission will be replaced

100K Car, 1,200 miles, new transmission?!!!!

I have seen a couple of similar posts across the web. Hopefully the swap is painless and you get back up and running quickly! Please let us know how the swap goes.

Yeah there was a member on this site I cannot remember who. But he was literally on the way home from dealer when his tranny went out. I feel for both of you and hope Ford makes it right very quick

Dealer in east Texas left GT500 outside because of transmission issues, hail hit car and destroyed it( S.M. video) seems to to be a lot of trans. problems

Ugh. Sorry to hear this. Hope dealer gets it all sorted w/ new tranny. I suppose better now than when warranty has expired!

Yea this is keeping me from tuning mine! I don’t mind eating a mistake I caused but if the trans went on a bolt on car with tune, you’re screwed. No way to prove it wasn’t the tune/increased power.

Wow -- that sucks, but yeah better now than after warranty..

I had mine alert once, and only once - I think it said something like reduced performance.
I was starting it and it was really cold (29 if I remember), so I turned it off and took my son's car --- that evening the code was gone and hasn't done it since.

Bizarre...so many videos of guys with 1000whp beating the crap out of these cars and no problems. Bad luck, I guess.

Good that it's under warranty...certainly something to think about if considering even the most basic of mods.

Good luck.

I am planning to keep this stock forever
I truly believe this baby is gonna be worth buttload 20-30 years from now when everything is electric

I am just still shocked a new transmission is needed on a brand new car
Damn

Hopefully this is just isolated incident and not indicative of a more widespread issue, imagine how many could be garage kept low miles and run out of time on warranty before the 1200 mile issue pops up

It's probably because this DCT transmission has got to be pretty complicated given all the things it does and the way it shifts and downshifts so often. The more complexity; the more chance of a failure. Just a supposition on my part.

a little bird told me that biden is going to make all gas cars illegal in a few years and mandate electric vehicles.The government will also do an mandatory gas guzzler buyback (like the mandatory gun buyback they are planning!) and require us all to give up beasts such as these shelbys we all love.. god help us all!!!!!
