Screwy tranny problem

Hello fellow pwerstrokers
I got a 2000 F250 with the 7.3 in it with 175000 miles on it. Today I was pulling my rev camper home from camping and I pulled up like normal backed it in its spot and needed to pull up and it would not move in drive and second gear only first gear and reverse it would move great. I unhooked the rv and parked it checked the tranny fluid noticed it was a little low put some in it still the problem was there. I put the shifter in drive and pushed the overdrive button to see if there was any codes. The truck started to buck back in forth like it was wanting to go. There was no codes also.
Any ideas would help.

I have been researching this exact same problem for weeks. I have spoken with diesel shops, tranny shops, and the local dealer. The dealership had my truck for a week and then told me to come get it because they gave up. No codes, no clue. They said that they had even been on their "hotline" and still didn't know.

Here is a link to my thread. Tranny Issue

Hopefully, this weekend, I am going to check for loose feeder bolts (as suggested in my thread) and maybe change out the neutral safety switch. These seem to be the easiest things to check.

Good luck.

Did anyone run a line pressure check on the trans when it is acting up? There are ways to diagnose if you take the thing to a reputable trans shop.

I'm going to put my 250 in the shop this weekend. They are going to give me a free diagnostic, if the tranny needs to be rebuild it will cost $2400 to $3200 with a warranty of 3 years unlimited miles.I will let y'all know what they find.

@Turbostang500 - I have asked for a list of tests that the dealership ran. Maybe it will keep down on duplication of efforts.

@bktimby - I would love to hear what your shop finds. My dealership said the only thing they knew to do was replace the entire tranny, but there was no guarantee that would fix my problem. Obviously, not acceptable to me without knowing what went wrong.

Sorry Wildred I haven't been able to mess with it I got called out of town to work for the next couple of months. As soon as I get back that's the first thing I'm doing.
