Well, that is the way the truck is now, but it was not like that a couple of weeks ago.
Turning the OD off while going down the highway would cause the tach to rise to about 2500 or so RPMs and you could feel the truck slowing down. Suddenly, after changing the fluid, but I do not know if it had anything to do with that, the tranny would free wheel after turning the OD off. No stopping power.
Now, if you tap the gas while slowing down, it does go into an idle, which I think all the fords do. But if you just take your foot off the gas, I think the motor is supposed to hold you back a little!
The udate on the story is that I took it to the local tranny guy and he is ripping it apart. He is going to put a new Ford HD Torque converter in and do what ever else needs to be replaced. He said on Friday, that on of the plates was covered in "slim". I do not know what that means, but he did not say it in away that made it sound good!
Hopefully, I will have it back by Tuesday so I can get the delete pipe and 6637 mod in.
I asked him about changing the Valve Body, but he said it should not be necessary. I might do it later, I do not know.
