Customer Question

I have a 96 f150 it has started to do a weird Thud sometimes when shifting like a kick in the tail gate ....then it's fine again
JA: How old is the transmission? Have you noticed any leaking?
Customer: No leaking but it did require a quart recently
JA: Are you fixing your F150 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: It did a similar thing some years back and it turned out to be a diff sensor and that was replaces along with the dash cluster and I usually try to do stuff myself
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: The truck is super reliable and I won't junk it for a trans issue
