I have no idea what is up

Hey, today i let my brother borrow my truck (1999 Ford F350 7.3 L) and he said it was not moveing when he hit the gas. So i took it for a spin, and it works great in reverse. So i put it in drive and it was almost like i was still in neutral, I just sat there. So i hit the gas and at about 2000 rpm it clicked and started to roll. I started to gain speed and everything seemed fine. I get onto a main road and was goin fine, untill i hit a red light. So i started to accelerate again and it took about 3 miles to accelerate to 45 again. I came to a hill and basically it felt like i was in neutral and was decelerating. SO i had enough momentum to get to the top and then i coasted to the bottom, and just sat there. If anyone can help me let me know.

Oh and by the way it is a 1999 Ford F350 Automatic 7.3L Diesel

This is my first time useing this forum so i have no idea how to use it. So if you can email me personally my email is

Crazy_Savage_5@yahoo.com

Thanks a ton if you can help

Anthony

Pull it out, wipe it off and put it back in. After you pull it out the 2nd time read the top line of the red fluid. It will tell you on the dip stick weather its low and full.

Pink is okay, its suppose to be like a pink-red color. Smell it, does it smell like a really bad fart or does it smell like grease? If it smells really bad it could be burned and the tranny is burning it self up and slipping.

It burnt. Are you running any tunes or anything, or pulling something way to heavy or driving like s*** all the time? that can make your trans temp sky rocket and if you dont have gauges you can get into deep trouble. You might need a rebuild... TECHS this is for you... my knowledge only goes so far.

Man that really sucks, is it possible to get a trans temp gauge? Do you have any idea how much it would cost to get the trans rebuilt?
