1997 f-250 auto shifts like poo and has shavings in the pan.
So my dada 97 was not liking to shift from 1st to 2nd unless you lifted your foot so we figured why not change the fluid and filter(it was done less then 5k ago). So we drained it and dropped the pan and went to clean the pan and the magnet was like a fusy ball of metal shavings... We have not noticed the trans light coming on and there was only one code stored it was a 01-p0603. So after we cleaned it all up and got it back together we took it for a ride and the same thing. It shifts a little better from 1st to 2nd but it tachs way up before it does and it seams to shudder.
So Im guessing its toast but what do you guys think? In that case let me also ask what should we do if we have to get a new trans? Any upgrades we should plan to do?
