This is going to be a internal issue with a faulty intermdeiate or direct clutch meaning a overhaul is needed.

There is an icon showing in the speedometer area it looks like a trailer and the car is driving weird like it's in a low gear


That icon looks like the vehicle has been put into tow mode.
When towing or hauling a heavy load, you can activate this feature with a button on the steering wheel, stalks or dash. Activating this mode tells the on board computer to modify the shifting pattern that is better for towing a hauling a heavy load often restricting the gearbox to the lower gear ratios.
  1. The Tow/Haul Light will come on when the system is on.
  2. If the light flashed steadily, have the system serviced.

2004 ford f250 superduty 6.0L dsl tow haul light flashing and doesnt want to go into reverse


That light means that the shift points have changed on the transmission. This is to get better economy when hauling. If it wont stop flashing then there is a valve in the transmission that is bad or sticking. You will have to have it removed and overhauled..

Overdrive light flashing on 2001 F350 7.3 diesel truck


Taking a guess at it, I would have to say that the transmission fluid is thermally broke down from the heat, and stress from towing. Try to change transmission fluid and filter. If this does not fix it the transmission itself may be damaged from the excessive strain, and heat. (heat is number one cause for transmission failure. After this problem is fixed, next time NEVER tow in Overdrive. This over works the transmission, and creates the excessive heat. If you tow a lot than consider adding an after market transmission cooler. Which is only approximately 100 and up, but will save thousands in the long run:)

Tow haul flashing,shifts like the tow haul buttons been pushed,but shift hard


If that light is flashing that means there is a problem with the trany. If you continue to drive it, it will damage the trany. I suggest you get it into a trany shop as soon as possible. I guess, I would take it to a private shop, that specializes in automatic transmissions, instead of taking it to a dealer.

Tow/haul light comes on gauge shows HOT


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.

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!
