5r110 Stuck In 3rd

I have an 03 f250 with the 6.0 diesel engine and 5r110 trans. I was driving it home the other night and it wouldn't shift out of 3rd gear.
I checked the fluid was a pint low so I added sp into it. Took it for a drive and everything seemed fine. Then yesterday I was driving it around and everything seemed fine. Then all of a sudden again it wouldn't shift out of 3rd gear. First and second seem to shift fine its just third. So I go to move it and reverse also feels like I have the e brake on. Any ideas what this could all be?

Thanks for your input.

sounds like a failing intermediate clutch solenoid or a bad direct drive solenoid. it really needs to be diagnosed with a ford scan tool and a line pressure gauge. i wouldnt drive it anymore

I'd lean towards a failed direct clutch. The manual valve is what controls fluid flow to the direct clutch in reverse so that takes the solenoid out of the equation.

Thanks for all the advice. Ill be taking it to the ford dealership so they can tell me what it is.

I did forget to mention that it only happens when I've been driving it for about 30-45 minutes. I guess that's a key piece of info I forgot to let you guys know.

You may be lucky and it not be the clutch then. Mine would do it as soon as it shifted to third. No matter what temp it was or how long I had been driving.

here Go Go Diesel

but I am not saying this is the issue

these trans are clean/proper fluid sensitive

the GOGO is a modified OEM

if time is an issue and your just going to try it without diagnostics go to the dealer and hit me back I can send u some PDF's to help u change it

also the pan gasket is reusable
