#319 of 608 you think you have problems
Jul 09, 2009 (8:48 am)
I have a 2001 550 dump bought it new,auto trans never worked right from the start. Could not dump a load of feathers for the first year, had to research problem on net because couldn't find a dealer to help. Ford was saying it was the pto mfg's problem, well it wasn't. I finally found a ford truck garage that would level with me, it was a faulty trans. He tried to fix it 4 times with no luck, still have not dumped a load.appx. 1.5 yrs. Finally replaced by ford under warranty,(the service mngr.told me i'd be back) worked as expected till early this spring, started doing the same thing as it did before they replaced it. Just as others have stated in this blog, wouldn't let you stop without stalling,o.d. would act like jake brake was on as soon as it would hit o.d., would shift ok without o.d. engaged. All this and still only have 40,000 miles on vehichle, If i figure right that eaquals about 6,800 miles per tranny job. The trans. that is in a f150 is the same trans. thats in my f550. Most of you guys are lucky you don't depend on your truck to make a living by hauling loads you would have had these problems alot sooner. They do have updates for your tranny that will help, but will not guarantee your problems will be over.

You did check all your Cables and the fittings ( nuts, bolts, etc ) to make they are tight and not slipping as well right ? The Cables bracket could be loose and not letting get into the right gear and the same on the fittings.

#325 of 608 Trouble shifting from 2nd to 3rd
Jul 15, 2009 (11:45 pm)
2000 model F150 Lariat, 5.4, automatic with towing package, 100K miles. The transmission shifts smoothly, doesn't seem to slip, no other apparent problems. However, after it shifts out of second it will not engage third gear immediately. Sometimes I have to rev the engine to 4K rpms, sometimes I just let the engine idle back and the tranny engages. Once the tranny is in third gear on the hiway I have no problems, it shifts into OD and back to third as needed.
If I leave the OD button off the tranny only uses the first 2 gears and never shifts to third.
Any idea what to expect when I take it to the shop??
#326 of 608 1990 ford f-150 Clutch / transmission problems
Jul 20, 2009 (6:11 pm)
Today I went to bleed the clutch on the truck and after releasing the bleeder the clutch peddle went to the floor and stayed there.
I tried to continue to bleed the clutch but no brake fluid will come through.
Is it the clutch master cylinder or the throw plate and how can I check?
The transmission shifted fine and runs good.

have the vehicle scanned it would appear the pcm has seen an error with something in the transmission and has set line pressure to max.. i would suspect a code 631 excessive tcc slip code
