ZF6 problem : (

Well hell! Take her for a spin after doing injectors, studs blah blah all the goodies, truck does just fine for about 50 miles tonight. Coming down the highway a yellow light flashes so i go to downshift and BAM!!! rear tires lock up for a second, and everything is fine. I'm thinking weird!!! okay well i pull over and put it in neutral, it's stuck in gear while the shifter is in neutral. i know it's stuck somewhere between gears, and it's a long shot but has anyone ever had this happen? the truck only has 150k on it and these trannies are pretty tough but any ideas on what is wrong??????

Re: ZF6 problem : (

shift forks? my getrag was doing that same thing for a while. turned out the pilot bushing went out and that in turn eventually led to it eating a shift fork. still putting it back together

Re: ZF6 problem : (

i finially found a guy about 3 hours away to do it for 1500 bucks but everybody else i priced was 1800-2200...and i found brand new ones for around those same prices. mine gets abused badly during hay season also...but since i've had it rebuilt not one problem at all besides trying to keep a clutch in it...different story though..lol

Re: ZF6 problem : (

I had one do the same thing, turned out the bearing went out of the reverse gear and would'nt allow the output shaft to turn.

Re: ZF6 problem : (

Whatever gear you have while in neutral is the bearing you locked up... I fried mine a few weeks back, had low gear only, that was a slow trip home...
