E4OD TQ unlocks... with turn signals?
'97 F250HD,180k Pstroke, 2WD. I was driving out on the interstate today, and signaled to make an exit, and the RPMs suddenly shot up about 2-300 and then went back down. What? I did it several more times, just to check (more out of entertainment than anything else), and it did it each time.
Over the course of my trip, I discovered that it will do it with either directional, with OD on or off. It also occasionally unlocks the TQ at random, just driving down the road, if I've been on the highway for about a half hour.
I'm planning to change the fluid and filter this weekend. Is there anything I can do from the underside while the pan is off? I'd like to take the VBs out and clean them, but I worry about all those tiny check balls falling all over the place. Any suggestions?
