Question about 2005 Ford F 350 Super Duty
I have a 2005 f-350 4x4 the tow/haul light is flashing and the truck has now power in reverse gear (automatic ) also very difficult to move gear shift from drive to reverse and park
SOURCE: 03 f-350 trans hot
I would begin by checking the transmission fluid level. If it's ok, then that means that your transmission has overheated. Have it checked for overheating damage by a professional transmission shop. If everything checks out ok have them add a secondary transmission cooler. This will allow the transmission to cool down faster under heavy hauling conditions. Hope this helps, good luck!

First off the 1997 F-250 HD with a 4.10 rear end will haul 14,900 lbs. The real question is do you have a receiver hitch or the rear bumper hitch. If you have the rear bumper hitch buy a receiver hitch that mounts to the frame a class 5 is usually put on these trucks. However a class 4 will work just fine for 6,000 lbs. The receiver hitch will have the capacity stated right on the hitch you just bend over and read it. It will give you two ratings one with weight distribution device and one without. You will be looking at the one without. That will fall somewhere between 6,000 and 12,000 lbs depending on the hitch manufacturer and the class. Hope this helps.

Does the trans fluid have a burnt smell and is it brown or dark brown as opposed to a red wine color? If this is the case then you may have a service issue caused by a clogged trans filter which is what this sounds a great deal like and the sooner you get the truck to the dealer or your mechanic the better as the trans in these are not cheap to rebuild or replace.

What you have here is a broken shift indicator adjuster accessed by removing the steering column shrouds or the shift linkage plate at the bottom of the steering column above the pedals has come loose from the shifter tube which goes along the top of the steering column.
