ford cvt cft30

Post by sirrealism » Tue Mar 06, 2018 11:01 am

Hello all. So I have one of these that most everyone hates. I have done about 6 of these and most all are bearing problems. This one came to me with a bearing problem. Made noise in neutral and park but was quite driving down the rd. Replaced the pulley bearings and it went down the rd. 2 weeks later its back with 3 codes. P0961 pres sol A. P0871 fluid pres sensor C. and P0701 trans control system. I kind of feel like its the TCM which is part of the valve body. Customer did not want to pay 1K for a new one so he got on EBAY and bought a used one. I put it in and had it updated and still same codes. I called a local trans parts sup and got another one and same issue. "By the way these don't need to be programed to work" I did some google searches and see that these codes are common in the freestlye-fivehundred forums. This is a 07 freestlye.
Has anyone run into theses codes and what did you do to fix it. Thank you in advance

Oh also it seems to do with heat. When its cold I can drive it a couple miles before the codes are set. Once its warm it will set the codes running in park in about 3 mins or less without ever putting it in gear. also before the codes are set it works perfect. Just trying to give all information possible.

No I did not. I have heard there are issues not using factory fluid. Do you really think this could be a fluid problem. If so why did it work for 2 weeks and then give up. Not doubting you just asking.
