Trans Question

I have an 04 F250 and the other day I had an issue with the transmission. I was leaving the base and I went to turn out on to the highway and head down the road. It had been raining and the pavement was a little slick so the truck started to spin. I immediately let off so the truck would get traction. When I went to get back on the throttle I got to about 60 and the truck wouldn't shift. I rolled out of the throttle and tried to go again and it still didn't shift into OD. Then all of a sudden it sounded like it jumped into neutral so I let off and coasted for a second and got back into the throttle real easy. After that it went down the road no problems. I wasn't taking off really hard or anything. It only spun cause it is a hard left turn onto the highway. It hasn't done it again but I have also been taking it easy on it. Do you guys have any ideas as to what may have happened. I didn't get any flashing tow/haul light like some of the other posts. Any info would be awesome. Thanks

unless Mark or someone has a good cause or a strategy reason /ABS ??
it may just be an anomaly the good thing is no flashing OD light

how many miles on the truck and do you stay on top of your fluid filters on her?


I light my tire up like that often in fresh rain turning hard right slippery asphalt but I don't hit 60 after that just surface street speeds of 45 so I have never mimicked your scenario

the truck has 119,000 on it and I usually do the filters about every 10k. I know it is due for one.

what filters do you do at 10 k ?

I was specifically looking for transmission history like flushes / fluid swap / filters

I will have to get with the dealership because I usually take it in and tell them just to change the filters on it. I haven't had a full flush done in a while. The last time the filters were changed I was deployed so I will see if my wife kept the reciept. I have never done the filters myself on this truck. Is it pretty easy to do? How many filters are there? Also how much fluid will I lose when I just do the filters? If it is pretty simple I will just do it this weekend myself and check the fluid out to see if it looks smells toasted.

Don't do a full fluid flush. Just drop the pan and change the internal filter and the external filter on the passenger side right behind the radiator. I think it takes 8 qts total, I might be wrong though.

Subscribing to this .. had a very similar thing happen tonight in the snow ... did it feel like your tranny slipped ? And it revved out like it was in neutral? This is what mine did
