Transmission problems at 95k miles
I had the truck serviced and then drove it to denver and back (2,200 miles round trip). I picked up a car in Denver. The transmission was slipping 4 or 5 times during the trip. When it happens, the engine drops to idle rpm and the transmission makes a screeching noise. The noise persists for maybe 10-20 seconds and then the rpms start to climb to normal and then it's working again. No codes, lights etc.
I brought it in to the dealer this morning and a plate on the transfer case is cracked. They are going to go deeper to see what other problems are there. I'll know more tomorrow. They ordered a new plate to replace the cracked one.
I guess I'll find out whether my extended warranty is worth anything tomorrow.

Having a car problems is really a headache. *sighs* A month ago, I brought my car to a shop to have it checked and service. After all the test done - it turned out that some of my ford f150 performance parts [ http://www.aftermarketperformanceparts.com/ford-f150-performance-parts.html ] - needs a replacement. I was really annoyed because I had to wait for several days before I can use it. After the said repair and replacement I'm happy how things turned out and my car is working good again. The repair was also covered by warranty so I had no worry about the expenses. :) Good luck
