This is a 4x2. 5.8L, The transmission would slip out of gear (like neutral) and not go back in while driving. The gears slipped so bad trying to get it home it broke. It only has 35,000miles on it so it is still under warranty. 3rd and 4th gear are good for now. This seems to be another problem. I drove it from Madrid with no issues and then the next day I took it to get the local inspection done (required by law) and when I picked it up this problem occurred.
I saw a switch on the side of the transmission which had a grey plastic protector around it. The protector was loose so I tried to secure it, but it is still kinda loose. the actual connection looked solid. The other electrical connections around it looked and felt secure. Could it be the relay itself? if so how much is that piece and what is it called?
I put my truck on the OBD code reader and two codes popped up.
P0700 and P1816. What do these mean?
