From worst to best case scenario.

Weak/scored pump
Leaking internal seals
Cracked/loose filter
Low fluid level

What is going on:
The transmission is very oil-hungry during a reverse shift so the pressure is jacked up. After time, the teflon seals (and even sometimes the rubber piston seals) begin to leak internally. Normally, this isn't a big issue. However, when enough pressure is dropped, it allows the torque converter clutch to partially apply, bogging or stalling the engine.

Sometimes, the filter housing can become loose and the pump can begin sucking air (same as a low fluid level concern). This causes a fluid starvation issue that can cause low pressure as well.

If the pump housing or gerotor is scored, then fluid pressure losses will also occur.

Best fix:
Rebuild with a new pump housing and gerotor.

when he had the engine pulled the truck sat outside in the winter for a month or so...im not sure if the bell housing was covered or not...maybe the seals did dry rot from being exposed to the elements for so long??

Hi, My truck did that every once in a while. Then it started doing it a lot but mostly when cold. It even did it as I slowed for a roundabout (dont think you have those). Eventually it started taking ages to shift from 1st to 2nd then I lost all drive. See the thread http://www.powerstroke.org/forum/99-...all-drive.html
Best of luck with yours.

01 F350 4x4 Lariat Super Duty LE. Dually. Hypertec system, AFE Induction kit, Rebuilt 4R100 with valve body & TC upgrade, 2x Trans coolers, Stacks & V3. Over the other side of the pond & yes my truck is left hand drive. Not sure why everybody asks me that. Just imported an awesome 06 6.0 Dually long bed. Just got to sort some stuff to make it leagal here...
