Question about 1997 Ford F150 Regular Cab
The trans cooler went bad in the radiator and put water into the transmission. I drained the torque converter and changed out the filter and fluid after taking the truck for a short ride between 1st and 2nd the shift was hard but seemed to get better after starting and stopping several times.
I later took the truck for a longer drive and started to hear a whine soon after the truck came to a stop but still had some reverse and after sitting for 20-30 minutes would go forward but only about a 1/4 mile started the noise again and came to a halt. I'm wondering if this is a converter problem or tranny problem?
It's a tranny problem the anti-freeze in the coolant destroyed the clutches in the tranny and all of the seals. This is a very bad problem the clutch material and the seals in that tranny are not made to stand up to the anti-freeze. The converter is less affected by because it not in the sealed housing of the tranny.
