I heard back from Downtown Ford. The problem with the Van is the torque converter. That requires a rebuild of the transmission from what I understand. The part won’t even be in until sometime next week.
I voiced my displeasure with how this van has treated us so far and considering all the sacrifices that have had to be made in order to replace our van that was stolen a few months ago, this was unacceptable.
I’m picking up our rental car and then heading to the grocery store.
We are out of food and haven’t been able to go since everything that has happened this week…happened.
Hopefully we will have a chance to just rest at some point. I’ve been up since 3am with Elliott and I’m exhausted.

This is really concerning my own issues. I would like to have a driver due to back problem.
I can totally relate! I hate car trouble which is what forced me into a new car with high percentage rate. Now I wish we hadn't and we are trying to figure out what to do. Since I am now unable to drive due to back issues, we don't need two cars. I tell you what though, sometimes you can't put a price on peace of mind and at the time I was tired of worrying if my old car would start up when I went out early in the morning.
Hang in there, maybe this torque converter/transmission is all it will need for another 20 years. (one can always hope)
I hear ya… My back us bad as well. I wouldn\’t have had to buy this van if our previous one hadn\’t been stolen. 🙂
