Am I looking at a new trans or maybe somthing like small? 99 f250 4wd 152k I just bought this two weeks ago man am I pissed.

Okay this is wierd...I get in the truck the next morning and no problems. I took it to two mechanics and two different answers. One said it was the torc convertor and the other said it could be the ECM but that it wasn't the torc convertor. Any of you have this come and go issue with OD and Reverse? I have drove it about 100 miles and it hasn't acted up again?

I don't know about the reverse part of it but there is a little wire on the shifter itself than run up the shifter to the OD switch on the end. That wire gets worn and shorts out causing problems with OD. You can check it by pulling your steering cover and looking where the wire comes out of the shifter and see if that's worn.

Thanks, I will defiantly look at it because my OD switch doesn't work either. It has happened twice to me since Thursday and when OD starts slipping the reverse also stops working. I can shut it off and wait awhile and everything works fine again????
