Skipping gears quickly.

Hey all,

Truck feels like its skipping gears under normal acceleration. First gear is fine then seems as if it goes into second for a second then goes straight for third which drops the revs to almost a stall.

Also, seems like my truck can't decide what gear to go in going uphill and constantly changes between 2 gears.

What could this be?

Its a 96 powerstroke F250 automatic.

Thanks in advance.

I know this sounds like a stretch, but I had those problems on a 99 chevy gasser many years ago. Problem turned out to be a clogged fuel filter. The truck would continually hunt gears because it couldn't get enough fuel through to filter to keep the transmission engaged properly.

Not a clue if that's your problem, but it is an easy check.

Mine was doing it. Turned out it was the rear abs sensor.

Do u have cruise control, if so unplug it from the master cylinder then try. If that doesn`t work check the fuses for the towing package, u could be back feeding through a ground. i think i explained that right. haha

Fuel filter is 2 months old, but maybe tank filters?
