Line came off trans cooler Possible damage???

I have a 96 1 ton ford single wheel 4wd with auto trans that I use for my landscaping business. I bought the truck from a good friend of mine about 2 years ago and he had a rebuilt trans put on it before I got it and had put aprox 3k on the trans. The truck has 150k on it total and about 18k on the trans. What happened tonite while leaving a friend of mines house is the line from the trans cooler came off and I lost 1st gear and the fluid out of the trans and drove about 2 miles to the nearest parking lot. I then realized what had happened and got a friend to take me to get trans fluid. The weather was too bad to drop the pan so I reluctantly filled it back up with fluid and fixed the line and drove it home about 8 miles. It seemed to shift harder when put into drive and has a slight shudder when shifting from 1st to second. I plan on dropping the pan tomm and putting a new filter and fluid in it. I am just trying to get some opinions to see if it may have sustained permanant damage. I drive this truck everyday and tow heavy so it has to be problem free. I just dont have the money for a trans right now and besides this one doesnt have many miles on it and truck is completly stock.

Hmm..Hard to tell. Change the filter and fluid definatly before driving it again.
Is the check engine light on or does the od light flash?
If it has the push button for overdrive see if its working. I think the temp censor will throw a mil light/code.
Does it shift hard when You put it in reverse?

No It doesnt shift hard in reverse and no check engine light at all i am going to get a fluid and filter this morning. The gear selector feels a little sloppier than normal in drive though. im just crossin my fingers though.

I just put a rebuilt E4OD in my truck...17 quarts with the empty torque converter. It would be worthwhile to pull your inspection plate and see if you torque converter has a drain plug...mine did.
