Customer Question
Hi. I have s 2011...
Hi. I have s 2011 F250 with a 6.7 and i am having a problem with the trans. All the gears work fine except for overdrive, even after the truck has been running a while and the trans is nice and warm. Not sure if this is computer related or mechanical. Im leaning more towards computer related since all of the other gears are working fine no slippage at all. I would like some advice on it. Should i take the tranny fluid pan off and look for metal? should i take it to a transmission shop and pay the fee to have to read the computer?

Is there a check engine light on or wrench light?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No there is no indicator lights on and they do all work. So i know there is no burnt out bulb.
Ford Mechanic: Scott W., Ford Technician replied 2 years ago

When it shifts to 6th, does it go to neutral? What exactly are you experiencing?

the dash says Im in 6th and it shifts but But Im turning just over 2000 RPS is the normal or high?
Ford Mechanic: Scott W., Ford Technician replied 2 years ago

Usually depending on the rear axle ratio and tire sizes, these vehicles will turn anywhere from 1800-2200 rpm in 6th. If there are no lights on, I can only suspect the computer is not seeing any gear ratio concerns. If the transmission is slipping or missing shifts, the wrench symbol would come on in the dash. It sounds like normal rpm range to me.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
