Truck shifting funny (I think)
I am a rookie to this diesel thing. (late 99 F250 crew cab)
My truck seems to shift funny. When I wind the engine out, 1st gear goes to about 2900 rpms, then 2nd jumps in about 2000 rpms and goes again to 2900 then shifts to 3rd.
3rd gear comes in around 2300 rpms and stays for maybe 1 second and then shifts directly into 4th gear. However, the engine is now "lugging" and no longer "winding out" because 4th gear is coming in at only 1600 rpms.
Do I have a transmission problem??
I have 3000 miles left on my aftermarket warrrenty (bought the truck used) and I want to get it fixed if I do have a problem.
