Will new Fluid/Filter fix this tranny's hiccup?
My 2000 Excursion PSD was bought with 94K miles. 10K miles later my Reverse stopped working as I was backing the boat into the driveway. Tranny fluid was fairly cool at the time.
I drove around and tried it again and the tranny worked as it should. The only change was that the fluid was warmed up, but I decided to change the Filter and Fluid anyway.
The fluid was almost brown, so now I doubt that the dealer that sold the truck to me ever did this like he said.
I got 7 quarts of fluid out, changed out the filter, and filled it back up.
Question 1 -- Given the symptoms, would new fluid/filter fix this?
Question 2 -- The manual says the auto tranny takes 14 qts. Did I change only half of the fluid?
