Customer Question

JA: How old is the transmission? Have you noticed any leaking?
Customer: not sure the age...just bought the truck today....has 187,000 miles, I assumed first transmission, seller didn't say anything
JA: Are you fixing your F150 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: It was low on transmission fluid....added 1/2 quart....haven't driven it yet to see if that helped...
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: If I turn the OD button to OFF, it will shift through all gears just fine, obviously not into OD, but everything seems to work fine, except for the overdrive
