The 5-speed automatic transmission 5R110W was released in 2003. This transmission was mainly intended for all-wheel drive pick-ups and powerful off-road vehicles produced by Ford. This transmission turned out to be quite popular. It had been produced for 10 years before being replaced by the fully automatic 6 speed transmission. The strengthened design is one of the main peculiarities of this transmission. The arrangement of drive shafts, which are positioned close to each other, allowed engineers to reduce the dimensions of 5R110W without any harm to its reliability. This gearbox is used in cars with the engine capacity up to 6 liters.

The extensive application of automatic systems positively affected user-friendliness of this transmission, but at the same time, this step had a negative impact on reliability of 5R110W.

Control units, sensors and cables of this transmission are extremely sensitive to frequent changes of temperature, and they get out of order quite early. The complexity of repair of this transmission lies in issues with diagnostics. Even with the use of special equipment, it may be quite problematic to determine the source of the problem on the first try. It complicates the repair process, and increases the cost of its implementation.

The repair and service maintenance of the 5R110W transmission is notable for its complexity and must be performed by professionals. Even ATF change cannot be performed without special equipment. Problems with the valve body are typical for this transmission. When the mileage reaches 200-250 thousand kilometers solenoids fail to function and should be replaced. In addition, transmission repair specialists often have to perform a complex procedure of cleaning oil supply channels in the valve body.
