hey guys. i have a 2000 7.3 250 and i wanted to know if anyone knew any transmission mods. cuz when i put the pedal to the floor, it does not want to shift until waaaaay late. it red lines for a really long time and then it shifts. im scared to surge my turbo and mess up the tranny. i have a tw chip on it. also my tow light on my shifter nob flashes at me when i race someone. it happens when the tranny is actin up. anyone know what the deal is:icon_ford:? thanks guys

Most likely your going to need a rebuild. The O/D light flashing is like the cel for the engine. The trans has thrown a trouble code. How ever you can not read these codes with a standard code reader. I suggest you take it to a trans shop and have it diagnosed.

i just replaced my torque converter and input shaft. Wouldnt it be okay if i just replaced those?
Your tc maybe fine. But the internals maybe causing your problem. I would still suggest having it checked out by a shop. It maybe nothing more then an electrical problem with one of the sensors or solenoids.

Tell them what is going on. Most likely they will charge you for the diagnoses but most shops waive this cost if you elect them to repair the problem.

They will do all the diagnostic tests they can and they will find a problem. The cost usually is around 100 dollars.
