02 F-250 4wd Auto - dies when put into Drive
So, I just bought this thing less than two weeks ago. I have no idea what the history is. That being said, the tranny fluid looked OK when I test drove the truck. It has 167k miles on it.
One week after purchase, the truck wouldn't start intermittently. Thought it was the fuel inertia switch, but that checked out OK. Took it to a mechanic friend, he says it looks like the shifting solenoid or torque converter killing the truck when he shifts into Drive. I have not witnessed this happening. He says transmission flush is the first thing to do. So I'm going to get it done. But would this cause the truck to not start, or to quit while driving but slowing for a stop??
The truck cranks fine when it won't start.
My buddy got one recent code having to do with the back pressure sensor. He cleaned the sensor and surrounding area, no longer throwing this code.
