About Ford Transit ASM’s

If you own a Transit that was produced between 2000-2005, you most likely have an auto selecting manual transmission in your vehicle.

For those unfamiliar with an ASM, or looking at purchasing a Transit with an ASM, this was a revolutionary feature that was introduced into Ford Transits built between 2000-2005. The ASM is a computer ran clutch system, that allows for the driver to switch between automatic and manual with the push of a button.

The benefit to this type of transmission includes increased towing capacity, and the ability to carry heavy loads (making it a real draw card for commercial Transit owners), and can overall help improve gas mileage.

However, as miles start to creep up on the odometer, the shift pump (a vital component of the ASM), is prone to failure. This can lead to issues including:

  • Loss of gears
  • Vehicle permanently stuck in gear
  • Gear will not select
  • Vehicle will not start

These problems can cause a snowball effect for your Transit’s engine, leading to engine failure.

How can you tell if there is an issue with you ASM?

There are a few ways that you can tell that there may be something up with your ASM these include:

  • Your car being locked into gear
  • Car gets stuck in reverse
  • Car losing gears in drive
  • Listening to your shift pump. If it runs too long this can be the sign of an issue

These symptoms will show up on occasion at first, but then slowly begin to get worse until you end up with a complete loss of gears.
