Question about Ford F-250
I have a 1999 Ford F250 Superduty and it will not go forward. Reverse works fine. I checked the transmission fluid and it was full. I dropped the pan and found the transmission fluid looked brand new and the pan was extremely clean. I have had this truck for a year and had no problems. I noticed the transmission slipping a little in first when I left for work, but all the rest of the forward gears were fine. Next time I had to stop and restart in first, I found I had no forward gears only reverse.
I believe that reverse is operated by a brake band. So it seems to be stuck. It is operated by a piston, and the seal could have swelled and caused too much friction. But you could loosen up the adjustor so that it is disengaged, in order to get forward gears again. Perhaps you can force the piston to retract as well, once you drop the pan again.
