I have a 2001 f450. I am getting a PO781, 782, and 783. When driving I have only noticed the 1-2 shift. It seems to hang in 1st, sometimes if it is held at a higher rpm (3k) it will shift, sometimes you let off the throttle and it will shift to 2nd. It seems to shift into all other gears no problem.
JA: How old is the transmission
? Have you noticed any leaking?
Customer: Trans is original, 60k miles. no leaks
JA: What is the model of your '01 Ford?
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Yes. I have not tried anything as of yet, other than check the fluid level. It is correct and no burnt smell or pepper flakes.
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: the truck sits alot, and when it is not parked it is usually towing 15k-20k. Everything is all factory, no modifications what so ever, and has never had any issues before or previous trans work.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Ford Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
