Question about 2002 Ford F250 Super Duty SuperCab

Open Question

I have a 2002 ford f250 7.3l diesel that 3rd gear when trying to engage would act as a engine break and instantly slow you down along with greatly reduce the rpms and struggle. after i noticed that i checked the transmission fluid and it was a quart and a holf low. i topped it off and the problem continued. so i limped home running it into second gear until i got to a high enough speed to catch overdrive after that 3rd gear started working fine but now second slips bad, doesnt wana shift into second i can also hear a clicking under the driver dash like a sillinoid clicking as it tries to shift into second gear what sensors should i check and how. does this truck have bands on the planitary gears like the older fords. or could this be something more complex all ideas are appreacated thank you

Have you ever changed the transmission fluid flush and replaced the transmission filter?

SOURCE: gear shift moves fine will not engage gear.

then the transmission has failed or has sticking engagement solenoid in trans pan, have the fluid and filter replaced and see if that corrects the problem

Yes, it could very well be a bad transmission.

SOURCE: 1997 Ford Taurus, Won't Shift Past 3rd Gear

The forward clutch control valve has a retaining clip that is known to break on these tranny's. This can prevent it from shifting into 4th gear. Good news, the part is five bucks. Bad news, it's in the valve body which takes a few hours to get to. I fixed mine in about 8 hours thanks to great step by step instuctions I found online. Search for "valve body removal taurus tranny". If it's not the retainer clip then it could be one of the solenoids on the valve body. I believe there's one just for 3rd and 4th gear. Good luck

SOURCE: auto transmission slips then grabs

first thing i would try is changing the transmission fluid out and filter, i beleive its almost 8 quarts. use a full quart of lucas transmission additive with the new fluid. if this doesn't help, the transmission will either need replaced or rebuilt

3lt diesel hilux 2002 (5L-E engine, non turbo). when i slow down the oil light comes on and the gear shift shakes like the vehcile is about to stall. doesnt happen every time, maybe 1 out of every 5 times...


85% of the diesel engine problem is the fuel system. and rest 15%, if met, is a major problem. you have to check the filter. and make the fuel line solid. means no air in the system.

2001 Dodge ram -2500 automatic. transmission slow to engage, months later started not shifting into 3rd gear, then 1 months later slow to engage into 2nd , now only 1st gear......


sounds like filter could be clogged, if it hasn't been changed in a while. you can try to replace throttle position sencer, it is like your old trans kinkenge system, only now, it is elect. it tells trans when to shift, like your speed sencer on trans doe's. both can make it act like it is.

1966 Falcon with C4 Transmission I changed out fluid and filter


Generally, what causes C-4's and C-6's to be slugish going into gear, is the seals on the servo pistons are getting hard. The servo pistons are what apply pressure on the clutch packs, when the seals get hard the oil can blow past the piston and the clutch won't engage. It's worse when the the trany is cold and usualy gets better as the oil gets warm. You could try some transmission conditioner, the cheep stuff works as good as the high dollar stuff. Don't rev the engine to try to get it to go into gear, the clutch is trying to engage and you will burn the clutch up pack. If the clutches were replaced 3k miles ago why didn't they put seals in it at the same time?

1994 ford E350 E40D trans/7.3 diesel Shifts great and after 2 miles seems to shift back and forth between 2nd and 3rd gear. seems the lock up engages and dis engages. Any ideas? changed out the MTPS?...


the solenoids in the trans may be sticking,try adding 1 pint of dot 3 brake fluid to the transmission fluid and drive it for a while-give it a chance to work..the brake fluid acts like a cleaner and it makes worn seals and clutches swell a little.just drive it easy for about 20-30 miles,its only about $3.00 and it could save a $1,600.00 rebuild

Auto tranny slipping after shifting out of second


Firstly is it slow for reverse, reverse clutch also engages in 3rd gear however reverse has a boosted circuit (more psi) therefore will engage rev but not 3rd but it is a little slow for reverse.
They do have a tendancy to pop a ball out of the High and reverse clutch giving this symptom.

Check Engine Light is on. Pops O2 sensor but car is acting funny.


This sounds like the loss of electrical power because of the lights.Any chance of a broken engine/transmission mount allowing to much movement and breaking a connection? Along this same line, look for a vacuum leak that occurs while in gear. If the o2 sensor code is for a lean condition a vacuum leak could case it and the drivability condition /stalling you are getting. Hope this helps and rate me please!!
