OK, so on my 94 F350 powerstroke diesel i bought it about 1 month ago. about 2 weeks before i bought it the guy before me put a new LUK clutch and flywheel in it. BUT the trans has trouble going in reverse and 2nd gear (griding, probaly synchros).
Sooo i was driving home from work. Waiting for a red light in a sea of cars and the light goes green. So me and the croud slowly accelrates. I shift 1st, 2nd then 3rd and when i go to give some gas in 3rd VERROOM engine REVS, i thought i missed 3rd (i didnt) so i went it into 3rd again and VERROM, and im not moving under engine power. I pull over, Now i can put the truck into all of the gears (some times not second because it grinds when i tryed) with the truck running with out using the clutch. But when i press the clutch petal i can still hear the engine being loaded down by the weight of the clutch being engaged (same sound as when it would shift)
Any ideas? Its a ZF5 manual trans. I think its time for a rebuild? theres only 80,000kms. Right before it happened i was hearing a whinning noise and it annoyning and would go away when the truck was moving but in N. I was pritty much babying the trans when something happened and im suprised it broke there and not when im booting it. HMM
I thought ZF5s were alot stronger. My other truck has the M5OD and I give it a work out and yet it shifts fine. Are parts pricy for zf5 rebuilds?
