Question about Ford F-150

1 Answer

I have a 2002 Ford F-250 7.3 diesel auto transmission. When I shift into 4 wheel drive the indicator light comes on and when I drive it feels like the 4 wheel drive in engaged, but when I hook up my trailer and try to pull up an embankment the rear wheels spin.

Lock in your 4 wheel drive, and get under the truck, and try to manually turn the front drive-shaft. If the drive-shaft spins freely, then your 4x4 is not locking in correctly, and you may need to replace the lockers.
Good luck!

I have a 1992 f250 diesel the over drive indicator light is flashing it shifts in to gear a little hard what is the fix


That is telling you that the TCM has codes stored that need to be accessed. This requires a professional level scan tool to access the transmission module. A generic code reader will not do the trick.

How to tell what transmmison i hav in a 89 f250 with a diesel it is an auto



  • In 1989, Ford went from the C6 transmission to the E4OD. The C6 is a vacuum shift and the E4OD is an electronic shift, 1-2-3-OD.

My transmission gage went to hot & i noticed trans fluid dripping on my way home. truck still shifts ok. 2002 ford f-250 diesel 4x4


The most common place to leak is the rear seal. You will have to put your eyes on it though. Make sure to fix the leak, and refill the system with the correct fluid before driving it again, because transmissions are expensive!

Truck jolts a couple times then the emission light comes on


check the water in the water separator, then check the fuel line for leaks, a leak in the fuel line can cause air to get sucked in and then the fuel is replaced with air in one or more cylinders (no fuel no fire=jake braking)
this will also cause the emissions light to come on.
these are not the only problems, but they are the free to fix first problems.
after that, it might be electrical, and have to go on the diagnostic machine at Ford
