yes, we were told by the auto shop that we needed a new transmission for 4 grand. So we bought one at a wrecking yard and had it installed for a total cost of 1150.00 Trans. and labor. It ran fine for a few days and then it made the same sound and broke down. Had it towed to Ford Dealer and now they said we need a whole NEW ENGINE! Only 80k miles on this truck. Called ford back east and waiting to see if they will help out with repair. Dealer quoted new engine 5800.00 This is a nightmare. I dont know who to believe.

I am having similar problems with my 89 F-150 5 spd.Check you Master Cylinder,see if it is dry.Look around the area where the fluid line goes in the slave on the side of the trans.,look for leaks.If it up and just started,not very likely it is the clutch.
I just changed the master cyl.,slave cyl.,clutch pressure plate,and I have about half the clutch it takes to be able to engage the gears.I need help with bleeding.I have taken the trans.out 3 times,still no clutch.Let me know if that helped ya any.Jeff..

Apr 14, 2011 (4:13 pm)
Things are going like the old Hee Haw song, "Gloom despair and agony on me..." 78k miles and trans seems to slip when at slow speeds during acceleration. Lost my job and really can't afford mechanic. Did have the transmission fluid changed, still slips. Any suggestions? Yes, i'm looking for work and no not as a mechanic.

I have a 2002 F150 4.6L V-8 with over 160,000 miles in it. It is having trouble with accelerating. Unless I'm going downhill, I'm lucky to get it to go over 35MPH. It also does not want to go uphill. I tried starting it off in 1st, then shifting to 2nd, then to Drive which worked pretty normally until I put it in drive when it just seemed like it didn't want to shift into 3rd. I have actually had the pedal to the floor going uphill and not much response, not even higher RPMS. It has an automatic transmission and I have had the transmission fluid checked (it was clean and at the appropriate level). Also had the components on the underside and under the hood checked out and all looked good visually. It had been having trouble prior to this for a couple of months with up shifting on the interstate at about 70MPH and has had a coolant leak for about a month or so in a hose near the heater core. Anybody have any ideas?

You might try adding a bottle of transfer case stop slip fluid. It's designed specially for transfer cases and is a blue fluid in a small (about 2 ounces) bottle. worked great in my tranny.
