Thanks for posting! That however is yet a different TSB, unrelated to the lifters. Didn’t know they had potentially bad valve springs too…
Theresa couple at least lifter TSBs as well.

I really like the 10 speed in my Expedition MAX. My 3rd favorite transmission. The cam shaft rattle the engine has, not so much......

At least they have parts available to fix the truck. Kind of surprised that is the case with the way things are today.

Thanks for the update!

Here's a tip for you!

In future, lower the stereo volume, which will help keep speed more reasonable! This will ensure the likely hood, that this company truck, will survive, until which time you acquire another new one.

PS Never tow more than 40% over truck ratings at speed.

Good luck!

Kid at work here has a new (20 or 21 model) Ecoboost F150. Said he has an inital rattle on cold start. Dlr said cam phasers, although he feels it's not indicative of (his past) cam phaser issues on a newer 5.0.

I'm with ya (same trans as the Ford 10 speed).
As far as slushboxes go, I still put the ZF 8HP in first place. Any trans that can do what that one can do, deserves a gold medal.
I still, 15 years later can't think of anything in a diesel that betters the old Allison behind the Dmax.
And this 10 speed is generally spot on and virtually impossible to confuse. Only minor gripe is it doesn't downshift aggressively enough (in grade braking situations) in any mode. And tow/haul and sport mode are not a meaningful enough departure from the "normal" shifting to warrant the added expense of the switches and buttons and programming.
Ford 6R140 is a very close fourth place if not higher.


No experience with the HD 10 speeds and not enough time in an Aisin equipped truck to compare.
Caveat, haven't driven

Love it. I tried the stereo thing, but this truck has almost as good a factory stereo as our SRT8. It sounds good, loud!
And I never tow over the trucks ratings at 40% over the speed limit!
(But it seems to hold 7th gear pretty well on the flats with 12klbs behind it at 80mph!) LOL

Funny story, though...Not sure whether to be appreciative of the knowledge or skeptical of the work, but the Dlr told me to change the oil in 1000 miles after I get it back.

And this is on top of a supposedly fresh oil change after they re-assembled it....
