Maybe a broken parking pawl?
2017 F-250's had a similar problem and there was a very aggressive recall - Ford would not allow dealers to sell any that were on the lot. I don't recall hearing about starting issues but they definitely could roll away. F-350's and F-250's with the 6.7L diesel did not have that problem because it was a different transmission. I'm loving my 2017 F-350, but I'm having a hard time letting go of my Titan.I'm going to take it back to the dealership one more time. If there are any more issues I'm going to sell it to a dealership or CarMax and get me a Ford. (Again, not a light decision for me. I've driven nothing but Nissans for 33 years other than my F150.)
Now you do.In fact, I don't know anyone who does.
If they can come back with a definitive answer on what EXACTLY has failed then I see no reason to get rid of it. The problem is they just start throwing parts at it without actually testing the parts that were pulled out. So it can be hard to say which part was the problem.The hard question is should I sell it as soon as I get it back or should I give it a while to see if the problem is actually solved. As of now they are 0 for 3. I'd prefer to sell it with a clear-ish conscience.
Maybe they'll give me a good deal on a new one but I have to say I think the new ones are butt ugly.
If the problem is electronic and outside the transmission you just got a free transmission!The dealership has talked with Nissan who has recommended replacing the whole transmission which they are going to do this week. So two things seem clear to me: 1) they are throwing parts at the problem and 2) they don't know what the problem is. I sure am hoping this will do the trick.
No, I would not expect that. The mechanics are busy, busy, busy. The service writer on the other hand might be looking stuff up outside the Nissan domain.No offense to any Nissan mechanics on here, but don't you think the mechs working on "problem" vehicles like yours would utilize all resources like forums for guidance and ideas for things to check? I'm just saying, its all public on the net, some of these ideas "valve control assy" had been mentioned.
