Ford recalling 402k Transit
For Transit owners, Ford is recalling 402k Transits to replace a defective flexible coupling in the driveshaft. I can't tell from brief article if it affects all Transit vans or just some of them. Based on numbers involved I expect most, if not all, are affected.

My FedEx guy showed up in one and I asked him how he liked it.
He said it was a great truck but their fleet has been experiencing transmission problems .
He mentioned something about clutches and further said that the problem was widespread enough that the repair parts were on national backorder.

I haven't seen anything about Transit transmission problems. They use the 6R80 which has been used on many light trucks for years, like the Ford F-150, including those with V8 and turbo V6s which have more power and torque. I'm surprised FedEx would be having problems unless they beat the heck out of vans with their constant stop and go driving.

I'm curious now if FedEx drives gas or diesel Transits. I haven't noticed any in my area.

The truck my FedEx guy had was a gasser.
