Ford 2002 E-250 work van, apparently the front clutch assembly is shot, as the van will no longer go anywhere in drive and when it does get rolling any stop and you are stuck. The repair garage says this is a common problem with this type Ford transmission, a 4R70W transmission, only 82,000 miles on the van.
we have always taken care of the van and the work load has been light. Cost to repair is estimated at $1,900. We found a transmission repair garage that will fix it for $1,200, be we remove and re-install the transmission.
I guess the moral of this story is buy a Chevy van next time.
