I think i blew my buddy's transmission....HELP

OK, the background.

2000 Ford F-250 with 7.3 Diesel, long box, 4 door, automatic trans, stock everything except a Diablo Sport set to tow mode

So I just bought a new camper (30ft travel trailer, 7000lb dry but was probably around 8000lb that day loaded) that my buddy was delivering to my land for me.

I have a hill that's probably 10' of rise over 20' run...i would guess 30-35degree angle. A person can walk the hill without much effort and i can drive my Chevy Tahoe and Chevy Sonic up it without any issues.

The only option was to back the camper straight up the hill. So he was in 4 low, OD off. So he backed it up and the trailer tires were just about to break the crest of the hill when he had to stop so i could trim a branch that was about to hit the AC on the camper. So after i did that, he backed it up another 15' so now the camper was on the top of hill but the hitch was right at the crest of the hill. This is where his tires started to slip a bit. When he went to give it the 3rd push back that's when there was smoke.

No fluid was dripping out at any point and the only gear he has is park.

Any suggestions??

Did you check to make sure that the Transfer case didnt slip out of gear? I have had that happen once.

Did you check the transmission fluid level?

Is it a manual transfer case with the shifter in the floor or is it buttons? If it has the buttons on the dash I dont know how to check it.

If there was smoke, I doubt it was the t-case, unless he has an exhaust leak. And if he only has park...makes me think a smoked pump

missed the part where he said there was smoke. I have to agree with Tony there.

On the 2000 F250 transfer-cases, if there was just smoke, it was not the t-case since you would have heard a lot of grinding and not just smoke! lol

The best thing you can do as of right now is help us diagnose it for you.

Take the dipstick out and check the fluid level with it running in park. IF that is good, smell the fluid, if it smells burnt, then that is a clear indicator you burnt up something within the transmission.

Next, drain the transmission into a 5 gallon bucket, after that is done, pull the pan and look in it to see if there are any clutch fibers, if there are clutch fibers, you burnt up one of your drums, more then likely the first reverse gear drum which I also believe is first gear as well.

IF YOU SEE METAL SHAVINGS, you burnt your pump more then likely or snapped something else internally. I can pretty much tell you that if the fluid is burnt with no gears, it will need a rebuild. Rebuilds for the 4r100's can run anywhere from $2,500 to $3,300 depending on what is broke inside.

Hope this helped.
