Serious Trans problem, No Solution so far?

OK guys. I need your help

I have a 2003 ford f250 rear 2wd 7.3 turbo

Almost every morning when I drive the truck and sometimes a couple times a day, when stuck in reverse it slams into gear.

Some days are worse than others.

Sometimes Ill even stick it in reverse and ill give it gas and it still acts like its in park or neutral. I have to stick it in Drive, go forward maybe a few inches, then back in reverse and then in slams into reverse so hard that you jerk forward a little bit.

Now the transmission oil was changed like 6 months ago and its already burnt cause of this. I changed it again about a month and a half ago and its already burnt again.

I've taken the truck to 3 very well known ford diesel mechanics and so far they cant get the truck to do anything and cant find anything wrong with it!

What do I do!

Does anyone know whats going on here?

2 possibel problems. The manual low/ reverse piston has lip seals on it and over time they shrink hence the hesitate and slam into gear when they finally grab and seal. Mostly give problems when cold. Same thing with the 3rd/ reverse piston. Low fluid level can also cause it, even if it shows full on the stick, add 1/2 qt. Might fix it.

Well i know I have plenty of fluid, I just changed it 2 months ago and its already all burnt again.

So you think what you have mentioned could still be the problem?

Are the seals at all noticeable if i drop the pan or anything?

Not noticeable in the pan. They are inside the trans inside clutch drum assy. Has to be rebuilt to change them.
