Giubo Cracking Hidden Topic

16391 Views 30 Replies 17 Participants Last post by  oscarvan
Hidden in 'Highest Mileage Transits' thread is an interesting topic about cracked flexible connections on Transit drive shaft called a Giubo. These rubber joints are apparently showing cracks at low mileages often enough that replacements are out of stock. Some Transit owners report issues getting dealers to replace under warranty. This topic kind of hijacked the thread & IMO deserves its own thread.

One thing I didn't see reported was a case where the Giubo actually failed.

Fyi, we also had a vibration (@48k) our dealer tested it and said it was a torque converter problem, recommended transmission flush(@54k). This has seemed to fix but now after 27k more miles we are afraid it is returning. BTW, our giubo was cracking we just had to pay a $100 deductible to have it replaced...we noticed the cracks at 48k but pushed replacement to 81k.
Ford's standing behind there product in our opinion sucks.
Also the transmission supposedly does not require service until150k yet when we had it done had to pay full price because it's a 'basic maintenance item'. Again Ford sucks!
We had shuddering when the transmission began to shift on slight inclines from 6th to 5th.
Upset because transmission is not due for 1st service until 150k and they said flush at 52k was a standard maintenance item....which if I am not mistaken should not have been for another 100kmi
