Trans not going into any gear
I have a 2005 F550 with a auto, Power stroke powered, chassis cab truck.
On Saturday I had a welder build and weld a rack on the utiulty body.
Tuesday was the firstday I started and moved the truck since.
Truck drove about 500 ft hooked up to a bobcat tralier. Then drove 200 ft. I put it in park, then 5 min later( Never turned it off) It was like somestole my driveshaft. All fwd and R was nothing, I moved the 4x4 shifter thinking maybe I kicked it into N ( NO was fine).
After fussing trying every thing finally went into gear. Drove 1/2 mile stopedon side of rd because I relized truck would not shift out of ( I guess 2nd Could not go over 30 mph with out red lining) Trans was NOT SLIPING at all plenty of tourque.
I put in park checked fliud 1 qt low maybe at best, ( RED not discolored)
I could not get back in gear. Shifter moves fine, when in D seems like nothing is turning.
I had some one move shifter through all gears, It was moving part on side of trans ( cable not broke, Check 4x4 also NP.
I pushed the truck back to my shop/yard with the bobcat, Aparenttly N and P is working fine.
Can Anyone point me In a direction, like a relay, computer module, Pump switch,or something electronic that controls the trans, but would also play a part of putting it in gear.
I had no problems with trans Saturday before the welding, Battery was not disconnected, As required. I drove the truck Saturday for 3 hrs was perfect.
I had it towed Tuesday to a shop who does my motor work on theses trucks I
Have two of them.
The shop said I need a new trans they ran all computer checks, But that makes no sence to me. There was no vibration, or slipping. I trust the shop but I have my doughts on there diganosis this time.
The truck has 88K on it I just did 3K worth of motor work to keep this piece of S running, egr cooler, oil cooler new turbo, a whole list 3 injectors.
Thanks for reading any advise would be great.
Sorry about the book, but wanted to tell all info I could.
