Customer Question

hi pearl.. I'm about as good on the computer as i am pulling wrenches.. i have a ford 4500 4 cylinder with a backhoe ,, i had this old machine for about 20 years and it has been a good unit.. but last fall i went to drive it up a steep hill and the trans sort of locked up and even the inching pedel gave any relief.. so i just left it and am just now trying to make it go.. so far i drained the trans oil and checked the screen.. but i was wondering if there was a simple idea i can try before i get ready to remove the trans cover… i'm near rockford illinois
