Lost Reverse for awhile!!??? WTF?
If you guys have any info to help that would be great! I have a 1997 F-350 SRW 7.3l with an automatic and 210,000 miles. This weekend I pulled my 29 foot travel trailer about 45 miles in a 35-40mph headwind in 3rd gear about 55-60mph. It pulled fine, but when we got to our campsite and I went to back it in the motor bogged down and died. I restarted it and pulled forward and attempted the backup again and same thing happened, then I put the transfer case into 4 low and it backed up fine. I didn't lock the hubs just put the T-case in low and it worked in reverse. The truck sat for 2 days after that and yesterday when I hooked up reverse worked fine and has ever since. I had the tranny and t-case both flushed and refilled with full synthetic and new filter about 2 months ago. Not sure what happened, but I am now worried that I need a rebuild, what do you guys think the problem could be?
Thanks for any info you may have!!
