OD light flashing fluid dripping from

flywheel cover.............. crap really making me wish i had bought a duramax already. PUlling 5th wheel got off high way and took it out of od since it would be stop & go. stopped at the inlaws for apprx 1 hr no more flash. Temp of tranny never left "normal range did get slightly high hat 1 point till i shifted into od in a flat area then dropped. Tranny was replaced by ford @ 25K mile now showing 50K. what is fords warranty? it is a e40d?

Take it back to Ford immediately! You don't say what year truck it is, but if it only has 50k on it, I doubt it is an E4OD. If they have already "fixed" your tranny once and it is still FUBAR, I would suggest reading the service manager the riot act if he even so much as thinks about giving you a hard time. I have an E4OD in mine with 125K miles and it runs like a top. There is no excuse for two failures withing 50k miles.

Sorry it is an 2003 7.3 according to the former owner who took very good care of the truck. He said it was a completely new tranny not rebuilt.

the front pump seal is out of it....and unfortunately if it was a ford trans that was put in it, then could not have been new....the only way you can buy one is a reman. that trans carries a 3/36 warranty, so take it back and tell them to make it right......Marc

OK tranmission gurus here are the code from my tranny problem.
P0603 internal ctrl kam error
p0783 3-4 shift error

So what does this mean?
Replace or rebuild?

the P0603 is from your chip and is normal

the other code means you probably had the 3-4 clutches slip. thats what caused the overheating. if it was me i would take it to a good trans shop and have it rebuilt if they determine thats nessicary, and if they do, i would have it beefed up a bit......Marc

As the tranny turns continues........
ok the dealer called and said it would be $650 to take it out and apart to determine the problem...So is said isn't that covered by the remanf trans warrenty??? no it was a rebuild not a replacement out of luck. You mean i have to have my tranny rebuilt every 25K .... no you shouldn't ......well you rebuilt WTF? Long story short i will purchase a powertrain warrenty for 500 and it will cover the trans and anything else 6 yrs 75K miles. SWEET i wanted some coverage anyway. The fellows at Kings Ford in cincinnati worked with me so far and i appreciate it......beats the snot out of 3K for another rebuild.
