bad shutter leads to tow/haul blinking

It's almost like it's engaging and disengaging. It started with a delay when I put into Reverse earlier in the day, followed by a slight stutter right when I gave it a little pedal in reverse that smoothed out quickly. I could make it stutter more/worse the more pedal I gave it right after the delay.

I had to back it out of the driveway and I waited for delay and let off the brake to let it push itself back a little bit but it would barely move so I gave a little push on the pedal and it was like a romping, it would barely back up, like it was engaging and disengaging. I had to limp it out of the driveway.

I didn't notice any noise from the trans area. I could slightly hear the motor revving while it wasn't backing up then sounded normal when it would engage but it was a noticeable BUMPing while slightly on the gas in reverse. I stayed steady on the pedal as I backed up about 50ft and it barely smoothed out with about 10ft left but it was a noticable chugging/hesitation that made it almost impossible to back it up.

So this morning I drained the pan to check to see if the pan filter had dropped out of the hole. It hadn't, so I put the pan back on and put the sp I drained back in.

I programmed it back to stock and went to get fuel, it acted up a little on the way. After filling up I didn't go but 2-3 miles before the tow haul started blinking, the 2nd to 3rd shift was a flare followed by a JOLT, same with the 3-5 shift...a flare followed by a jolt. Hopefully it got picked up in the videos. Once tow haul started blinking it felt like it wasn't going into 5th or 6th.

It also wouldn't engage drive after I came to a stop at a stop sign. It was lugging forward really slowly like it was in 5th or 6th, then it jolted and started moving again. The lady waiting for me was like WTF cuz I couldn't get it to move forward, this was on the way to the fuel station.

I just ordered the low/rev and intermediate solenoids earlier before I drove it. Hopefully that wasn't a waste of money.

What do I need to read the trans codes??

Thanks.

direct is what is used for reverse, 5th and 6th if you didn't know that. honestly it sounds like a mechanical failure probably not related to a solenoid.

No idea what it takes to read codes out of the TCM, maybe a high end scantool like snap-on or obviously a ford IDS. Any soleniod D codes would indicate the direct circuit

Almost seems like the torque converter is giving up

he did say he dropped the pan and with no metal found I wouldn't suspect the convertor is gone

Replaced gogo solenoid, put in the stocker direct solenoid.

Still does this, got the other neighbor to take a clip. No codes yet, need to find someone in the area that can read them for free or for a reasonable price.

You really need to scan it to pull codes, if they are friction codes you're going to need to rebuild it. Drive in in forward gears and see what it does on the stock solenoid and stock tune. The lack of clutch material has me concerned and thinking its not a clutch issue. Making me wonder if its pump related.

Before ordering any parts, get the thing scanned.
