Hi Guys,

Just wondering if anyone is able to help me through an acceleration issue I'm having.
Bought my first 2012 BT50 3 days ago.
Woohoo!
It's an XT high rider Auto transmission.
Having a small issue with accelerating gently in low revs.
Has no issues when driving with a heavy foot.


The sound is at 3second

This sound is intermittent and completely random.
Acceleration is lost whilst making the noise.
Can happen three times within a gear, sometimes doesn't happen at all.... although it does it more than it doesn't if that makes sense.

Bought the ute from a Toyota dealership and they have agreed to fix everything under statutory warranty but have been told that they have no idea what the problem is.

Anyone had anything similar?

Also found this white powdery stuff on one of the hoses going into the transmission.... could this be related to the issue?

Any help is much appreciated :)

That is a minor coolant weep on the trans heat exchanger.

It may pay to check the transmission for coolant contamination, there is a largish hex fitting at the front RH side of the trans above the pan joint line, it is a hollow nut with a plastic dip stick in it.

Also, I know bt50s and rangers are twins but the bottom of my pan has ford logo on it..

Is this normal or a sign it has been replaced previously?

Lots and lots of parts branded " Ford", " Fomoco ", but then Mazda chuck in lots of subtle differences as well

The Ranger and BT50 both come off the same production line, other than the panels all the major components are Formoco (Ford Motor Company).
That is the original trans pan.
To check the level the trans needs to be 80 Deg C, motor idling and in park. To check the condition of the oil do it cold.
You will notice the exhaust is cunningly positioned to get the back if your hand when doing it hot, a glove is a must.
