Broke something

Well...I was leaving my parents cabin earlier this evening. I got on the skinny pedal a little bit, not a lot, maybe a bit more than what I normally do. The tranny hesitated a little bit, enough for the engine to get in its power band, and the tranny decided to shift very very hard into gear. A large/loud clunk ensued and a lost both forward and reverse gears. When the truck is idling, I hear a little bit of a grinding noise. Again, no forward or reverse.

What do you think is broke?

The truck is getting towed this evening to a place that my relatives take all of their vehicles and trucks to. I have no idea around a transmission and I really need this fixed ASAP because it is my DD. I am guessing some kind of input shaft or something broke. The tranny was a Ford Reman that was installed about 45,000 miles ago. I have to check on the date, as it might still be under the 3 year warranty. I'll let you guys know what is wrong with it. Hopefully it won't be too pricey...just a crappy situation all around.

Sound like exactly what a happened a few weeks ago when my tranny went out. With truck at In park dies it make noise or once you put it in a gear?

It does make a noise when in park and also in gear. Sounds like a grinding noise but very light. Getting dropped off at the dealership now as the transmission has the 3 year limited warranty good until next June. Hopefully gets covered.

I don't see how they'll cover it being tuned but
If you have NO gears, I'd think the input shaft broke, but that's just me.

Are input shafts expensive to change? Does it require a new transmission? Whole situation isn't much fun.

Input shafts on these trannies rarely break. Sounds like the person who built the tranny screwed up... especially if you aren't pushing any power/traction, or pulling anything.

Not the input shaft, I stop there today and looked at it. The input shaft was in good shape , fluid looks good , and the tech said that all of the pumps pressurized well. He is going to start tearing out the internals to see what's broken on the inside of the transmission, he thinks whatever then input shaft connects to is what is broken.

I'm not familiar with ford transmissions just big allison 2000 and up and in those if it's not an input it's usually a planetary shaft but they will usually still move a little
