01 7.3 trans problem

Have a 01 F250 4x4 7.3 with auto transmission that I use as a work truck. It has 250,000 miles on it and has been a real good truck. Transmission has always shifted fine --no hard shifts, no slipping---nothing.

My problem is came up to a red light and came to a stop. When I took off it would not shift to second. Pulled over checked the fuild and everything was fine. Took off again and pushed it to 3000 rpms, let off the pedal and then it shifted into 2nd. From 2 to 3 to OD it shifts fine and at normal rpms. Ended up driving it 100 miles home through stop and go traffic and same thing happened each time I had to come to a stop.

I live an hour from any transmission shops and do most of my own work. Any ideas?

Typically, but not always, if it is an early 2001, it most likely could be the mechanical on way diode Ford used in late 2000 to early 2001.

Thanks, I believe you are right. I have a friend that is a diesel mechanic (but not trannys) who has referred me to a friend of his that has a tranny shop. Unfortunately he is on vacation so I haven't spoken to him yet. He's suppose to be back next week. I'll wait since I don't trust the Yellow Pages...

As an add-on. Mine won't shift now even when I let off the fuel Also, in every gear but first, it makes a rattle like a broken shock makes... (

Yea, I'm pretty much resigned to the bad vibes. That's another reason why I don't want to take it to somebody that tells me to drop my drawers. I will definetly let you guys know when I know...
