This is something that happens on stock trucks as well. It has been determined that it is due to low transmission fluid. Check your fluid and see where the level is, you may need to add a little bit. Have you recently had a tranny flush or anything of the sort?

I will agree with 08stroker250 it is due to low trans fluid mine was doing this and shifting rather hard i was 1 1/2 quart low added and wolla all better. mine did this on the 75 150 and 210 i dont run the race tunes yet but yea its a known problem . my father said when they pdi the trucks at the dealerships they don't always check everything . he laughed when i told him said it doesn't surprise him one bit alot of these dealerships get lazy , he is retired from ford 40 years .

Ok well I recently had to have a new TCM installed at the dealer because I accidentally turned the key off when I was downloading a different tune...it fried I guess

My truck has done that both stock and RCD tuned...think it's "normal" at this point.

I dont know what to tell you then. Nutty, Matt, and my diesel tech at the Ford dealership all told me this. If its something other than that, I dont know what it could be

my cousin has a '99 f-350 diesel, and asked me a transmission question. could someone help me out. he told me that while driving the light on the shifter for i think the overdrive starts to blink i told him that it could it could mean he could have transmission problems starting, is this right or could it be something else?
