Customer Question

I have a ford f250 with a 7.3 diesel. Every now and then the tack will stop working and the over drive light will blink and the trans will unlock the torque convertor. What could cause this.

the camshaft position sensor is the most common problem when it comes to a drive ability problem, they are not expensive and i recommend going to a dealer to get one, the engine rpm is measured through the cam sensor and if it cuts out the torque converter will unlock just like leaving up on the throttle pedal
