Had that issue it was my o2 sensor front sensor, closest to cylinder 1 side. Check codes........... However I replaced the rear sensors first, should of done the front cuz they do get expensive. Probably only needed the one that I mentioned above.

Acts like the transmissions slipping AFTER it gets warm,when its cool it shifts great?


Check you have enough transmission fluid, does it surge when changing up when warm? When checking fluid level run gear shift through gears 3 times to circulate fluid place in park then check level do this with engine running and parking/handbrake on. If you don't run shift through gears before checking level dipstick will give false reading.....usually saying you have enough but when fluid has to circulate there won't be and hence trouble with gear change when hot.

You have two problems. The surging is from a dirty throttle body and /or air filter. The selector light could be from a bad selector switch or internal transmission problems. Have the car scanned for codes.

2003 F250 6.0 diesel hit 5th gear and starts shaking when acclera


the mechanic should check on the electrical system of the car .the battery , the coils ,.the rotor the fuses , the starter solenoid , the sensor the spark plug and the distributor assembly. check for worn out and corroution . If there is then clean if not any more working then replace.loose connection also may be one cost of not warming. The fuel pump should also be checked and the idle to be adjusted for acceleration.The inter cooler do not have a problem with this it don't have a connection.It should not be touched.the surging when you place it to the fifth gear may be is about the quantity of the gas or fuel that is going to the engine when running.
