    Hello all. First of all excuse me for not being very knowledgeable about this subject. Today I did some spirited driving in my A10 2019 GT PP1 and noticed that at high speeds my transmission oil temp was getting very high (215° and up!!!) shortly after if I applied even the slightest bit of throttle the engine speed would just increase and rev up but it didn’t feel like any power was getting put down, engine revved to about 4500 and everything felt very clunky then I saw a lot of smoke coming out from behind me!!! Could I have damaged something or are we looking at just a simple case of overheating? I’ve tried looking at other threads but can’t find anything related. This has happened in the past before, at quick highway speeds temp rises quickly and gears feel as if slipping now today smoke. Appreciate any input thanks!

    Definitely will be getting in contact with the dealership, too bad the ones near me are complete garbage. Was just hoping to get a better idea of what the underlying issue is before taking it in.

    Nothing to understand.. other than the fluid is getting cooked. But let us know what they say.. cause you don't hear about a10's failing.

    Or the fluid being forced out and contacting the exhaust.

    Oh man!!! Do you have option to see under car via jack and stands. Might just be a line or connection issue. Is the underside of car wet looking. Ive tracked mine to 230 and its been sluggish but never puffed smoke.

    Have not gotten the chance to look under but now that you mention there was residue on the rear diffuser of something that might’ve been related shortly after the smoke showed.

    The a10 is known to slip slightly intentionally when cold to warm up, but warmed up thats different.

    Definitely not normal, especially since my a10 was one of the unlucky ones to be 2qts low on fluid from factory Im hoping there’s no real damage. I’m gonna have the dealer take a look at it tomorrow morning and will update the thread most likely tomorrow night.

    I actually had this exact same thing happen a few days ago to my ecoboost 2018. Mustang is currently with Ford and I won't hear anything till Tuesday. They did call me and tell me that it looks like my mustang had too much transmission fluid.

    That just sucks man. I haven’t ever heard of this happening. Hope you get it fixed.

    Ford needs to think with their dipstick.

    My guess is it boiled the fluid in the trans from (unknown)problem, pressurized the fluid it and pushed it out the rear seal onto the exhaust.

    Waiting is the worst though.
