Transmission acting up maybe??

Ok Got some questions for you guys

I noticed going into second gear it would shift hard into it.

Then I started smelling something like a burning transmission a couple days later.

Then I checked my transmission fluid. It is full but there is debris on the measuring stick that looks like big brown sand. Im pretty sure this is really bad.

I still havent figured out what the burning clutch/transmission/brakes/ radiator fluid smell is coming from.


Just got the truck a little bit ago. Do I need to flush? Do I need a new filter? (I know nothing about transmissions.)

2008 f250 6.4 61,000 miles.

The trans should be flushed at around 50k miles so it sounds like you are due.

I heard transmission flushing is a joke and you really don't get all the debris out unless you drop the pan and there is a filter and a magnet that you need to replace/clean?? Is this true?

I just drop what's in the pan I think that get about 1/3 of it. And I do that about once a year. If your has that much junk in it could be time for a flush. I've heard flushes can screw it up tho. Hopfully someone else chimes in

^^ this. I would drop the pan and put a new filter. I also believe there was a TSB about rust in the transmission dipstick tube. I don't remember the TSB number tho.

Thanks for the replies. Cant find the tsb??????



Took it to the shop and had them drop the tranny pan. Replaced the filter and all fluid.

Absolutely spotless transmission.

Thanks Ford for being an idiot. Why would you put a dipstick tube in it that would make people think they had rust in their transmission.

just wasted $350......
