#309 of 607 TRANNY TROUBLE
Jun 11, 2009 (4:54 pm)
I have a 1997 Ford F-350 powerstroke 7.3 with an automatic transmission and it started with the O. D. light on the shift lever, blinking on and off. it would shift very hard so I would disconnect ground wire from battery and reset it. After that it would run and shift just great. This went on for about a year without incident , and then it would do it more and more frequent,until the O.D. light would not stop blinking at all. I kept driving it as little as possible, still no change. The next thing that happened was that while decreasing speed to stop a red light, it felt like it was not down shifting to the lowest gear,like it would stay on 2nd gear and just bogged the engine down ,and the engine will shut off.I will start engine again and it is in low gear. It will up shift normally again until you go to stop again, and it will bog down and shut off again. Another thing is that when your parked start engine go on reverse ,it will go on reverse but it feels like it goes into a higher reverse gear gaining speed very fast, needless to say bogging the engine down and shutting the engine off.
Has anyone had this problem, or know how to remedy my problem ?
I thank you beforehand for reading my post, I am a new member and not to familiar with this forum,so bear please with me .
#310 of 607 Ford F 250 Bad transmission
Jun 13, 2009 (3:17 pm)
I have a 2005 F250 SD CC--6.0--33,200 miles--I tried to back up and it felt like I was backing over something--suddenly it started to back up with a jerk--as I continued--I notice I was leaving a stream of transmission fluid--I had it towed to the nearest transmission shop (ford dealer said no warranty) apparently a snap ring in the reverse section of the transmission broke loose with such force it knocked two holes in the transmission case. Has any one else had this problem--I understand from the transmission shop 05's had a problem with this snap ring coming off--any help at all would be appreciated.

I have a 2001 F-150, tranny rebuilt about 18 months ago, now when driving around 45 mph it fills like it's slipping when the od is on, does not slip when the od is off.

I have a 1993 ford f350 ford 7.3 with a E40D trans
It want to stall the truck in gear sometimes
Sometimes backing up the truck shakes and wants to keep going.
Was told to replace torque converter and I did which helped my shifting prob but wants to stall sometimes in drive or reverse.

Having / had very similar problems. 1997 AT 187K, OD light blinking ... engine stalling. Motor would feel very strong in park, put it in drive and the truck wanted to surge forward a bit and stall on occation. I too neglected to address the problem as its mainly a good old farm truck these days. Long story short, I burned up the the transmission and got stuck on the side of the interstate two weeks ago. Truck still at the shop, looking roughly $2k-$3k to rebuild existing trans. Can't decide .... exploring options.

#318 of 607 Transmission shudders shifting in & out of OD
Jul 06, 2009 (6:47 pm)
I have a 2001 F-150 extended, V8 with the 4R70W transmission. It currently has about 123M on it. At about 70M the transmission started to shudder when shifting in & out of OD at about 45-50 MPH. The dealership said I needed to change fluid & filter. That didn't work. A trusted mechanic at Walnut Tree garage said the clutch plates were sticking and I should try a tube of Instant Shudder Fix. That helped for about a month. Tried it again with no luck. The guy at NAPA said air was getting into the fluid and causing it to foam up and the pump to cavitate. Any suggestions?
