#467 of 606 99' F-250 clutch problem
Aug 04, 2010 (11:04 am)
Hello to all! I'm new at his, so here it goes!!
I have a 1999 Ford F-250 with a Power stroke Diesel, manual 6 speed, 4x4 manual hubs and only has 75,000 miles on it. I am having trouble with the clutch. The resivore is full of fluid. I don't have much clutch pedal (approx. 2-3" off floor when it engages) and when I am pulling anything I can't get it into low gear or reverse without turning the motor off first. Is there an adjustment on these clutches and if it is where is it located? If not what do I need to do?
#468 of 606 Is my transmission the problem?
Aug 04, 2010 (7:36 pm)
I have a 99 f-150 with 262K miles on it. The transmission fluid hasn't ever been changed, but I think the transmission itself has gone out. I can't get above 15 mph. When I try, the truck stalls, acts like it's in neutral, and goes down to 5 mph. It also makes a terrible squealing, wrenching sound like the metal is being rubbed against other metal. If it is the tranny, how much will a new one cost me? Please help!!!

There is not an Adjustment but if the Clutch Tower Pedal has never been changed out its probably the Bushings in it, A new Clutch Pedal Tower are usually under 150.00 and are not to hard to change out yourself. The only other thing is the Clutch is out and the Stock one had a Dual Disc Fly Wheel which never lasted long, if it would have been check under Warranty they would have placed it for free.

Also make sure you are checking the right fluid Reservoir. I myself at first used to check the wrong one all the time, ,lol
#471 of 606 96 f-150 shifting
Aug 07, 2010 (12:26 am)
I have a 1996 f-150 4x4 with a straight 6 auto. The previous owner had the trans rebuilt just before I bought it. Ever since I bought it the fluid looks like new but it shifts really hard from one gear to the next and when you shift from drive to reverse it engages really hard. I believe that it was truely rebuilt but I just wonder if there was something forgotten or improporly hooked up. I'm thankful for any tips you may offer.

Thanks for the info. This gives me a place to start. I bought one of Ford's plastic bushings, $10.00 for a small piece of plastic. Haven't had time to put it on yet. (Just got back from Fl.) If I change the Clutch Pedal Tower does this do away with the plastic bushing? I had a small shop to change the plastic bushing, last year I think, and it seemed to help for a while. I'm checking the small round resivoir that is on the plastic/rubber strip near the fire wall beside the brake boster. It takes DOT3 brake fluid. Thanks Again!!!!!!
#473 of 606 97' F-350 Diesel Transmission Problems
Aug 09, 2010 (8:13 am)
This is kind of strange but close to some of the other problems that i have read, about 2 years ago i noticed that my speedometer was flucuate every now and then and the transmission would ship hard when that happen. So knowing that i was going to need to work on it i went down to the car wash to clean the engine off, the problem quit and everything was fine. It started to happen again about 8-9 months later, same thing washed the engine off and fixed the problem. I guess a cheap fix can only last so long, this time the speedometer quit working all together and the transmission shifts hard now at higher RPM's, then it will work for awhile, back and forth.
My guess is it is an electical problem, but not sure were to look or what to look for, any ideas?
#474 of 606 manual transmission
Aug 09, 2010 (12:38 pm)
Need some insight on my 97 Ford F150 SWB 4.2L V6 with 5 speed manual trans. Truck is a 1st year proto that I purchased in summer of 96. It has been flawless for the past 76,000 mi. This problem only happens when Betsy( Trks name} decides my day is going to well. Cold start or warm with clutched pressed she will not start in any gear with or without emergency brake depressed. After talking to her, she will start after numerous attempts. This is where her next fault occurs. I can put the truck into 1st or reverse and she goes no where. Sometimes it takes a great deal of acceleration to move slightly. Frustrated the last time, I took to highway and noticed as I go thru the gears that she gains engine rpms but does not accel to her protential. I made it home and now she drives like new again. This happens every month or so. I stopped mechanics in 1985 after tech school when carbs and dist points were replaced with F-Inj and ECMs were introduced.I am always seeking wisdom & not afraid to ask ?'s b4 I attempt a mission. Please help b4 I send Betsy to a AAA meeting and find out that the 12 step program hasn't worked. LOL THX
#475 of 606 trouble getting into 3rd up or down
Aug 12, 2010 (7:38 am)
2002 F-150, 4.2L V6 5spd manual, When cold, shifting is great. Once heated up there seems to be a delay in "letting go" of current gear(2nd or 4th) before shifting into 3rd. I am to the point now where I just hold the clutch for a couple seconds until I feel it "click" when going to 3rd. Is this a synchronizer? If so, does this mean complete rebuild?
