2001 ford F250 Auto Transmission

Hey everyone I am new to this site and I have a question for you. We have a 2001 Ford F250 SD with the 7.3 liter, The problem that I am having is this morning I was moving my trailer and went to shut the truck off because I needed the keys for the tailgate. So I go and shut the truck off and it is shut off for about 10 min's, then I go and start the truck up again and let it run for a few minutes. When I went to put the truck in drive I pushed on the pedal and nothing happened, it is like the truck was in neutral. I had the rev the engine while in drive up to around 2700 rpms just to get the truck to even barely move. But the truck will work in reverse. I have checked the linkage and is was tight. I changed the fluid and there was no metal shavings or nothing. I am thinking that it may be the Tranny pump? What do you think? thank you

Re: 2001 ford F250 Auto Transmission

It isn't the pump. You wouldn't have reverse either if it was the pump. Your transmission range sensor may have gone bad or have been knocked out of adjustment. That is the sensor that is on the driver side of the transmission behind the shift lever. There are two small hash marks that need to be aligned perfectly or it will throw the transmission into OD instead of first gear.

Re: 2001 ford F250 Auto Transmission

I will check that in the morning when we do more work to it. I have also been reading about a mechanical diode. Would that do it as well?

Re: 2001 ford F250 Auto Transmission

I just found a tranny with 44,000 miles on if for a good price. it came out of a 2003 and it says it will fit a 2001 with the 5.4 liter. My question is will this tranny still fit in the 7.3 liter diesel and still be string enough? This is exactley wha is says (FORD F250SD PICKUP 01 A.T.; (4R100), 8-330 (5.4L), 4x4, ID 1C3P-BC)

Only a diesel trans fits a diesel, a bb trans fits a bb, and a small block fits a small block.

Re: 2001 ford F250 Auto Transmission

Ok, I found a tranny for a 7.3 liter but it is for a 4X2 and we have the 4X4. Can we unbolt the back part of the tranny and bolt the transfercase on to it? or does the tranny have to be for the 4X4 also? I also found a new tranny for a 00-05 ford excursion with the 7.3 liter, will it work in it or is just a little bit different? Because the price it $100 dollar difference between the too. But this one is for a 4X4.

Re: 2001 ford F250 Auto Transmission

Nope the output shaft on the 2 wheel trans is longer and will not work on a 4 wheel. If you find one from an f superduty which is the obs body you can pull the brake assembly off the trans and it will work.

Re: 2001 ford F250 Auto Transmission

I wouldn't waste the money on a used one bite the bullet and get yours rebuilt or get a ford reman. The odds of getting a "good" used one is not very good. And you will most likely end up with a broken truck again in 6 months.

Re: 2001 ford F250 Auto Transmission

Ok, this tranny from the 00-05 excursion is re manufactured with 0 miles on it as well as the F250 tranny. 0 Miles on it to. I just didnt know if we could save to $100 dollars between the excursion tranny and the tranny for the F250 sd. But We are going to get the tranny rebuilt or get the Re manufactured tranny.

Re: 2001 ford F250 Auto Transmission

A BTS or JW is a new trans, not really a rebuild.. everything is new and is
way overbuilt for anything you will put at it unless you put $15K in the engine.

It will be the last transmission you buy. I plan on keeping my truck for many
years so I dropped in a BTS when mine started slipping. Done, no more
trans problems..

You might have something rare on your hands if I understand you correctly. After mid 03, they went to the 6.0L truck so how will your trans fit?

Re: 2001 ford F250 Auto Transmission

I never thought of that. I called some of the local shops around here and they have the best feedback in the whole state. They are going to charge $1150 for a full re manufactured tranny with the updates.

Re: 2001 ford F250 Auto Transmission

Tell them you want the z-pak clutch kit and the updated 6 pinion sprag and the tricumulator update and if you want firmer shift and better tc lockup then you want to have them do a .427 or .500 valve and the tcc valve modified.

That is pretty cheap and in the Jasper or Aamco range. I would be highly suspicious of what you get with that. You can ask Franko72 on FTE what he went thru for a "cheap" build from a guy with good feedback. $1100 is VERY light. It barely will cover my TC

Re: 2001 ford F250 Auto Transmission

Well We have the local shop going to re manufacturer a tranny for us with all the new updates. We have delt with this shop before and the transmissions we got from them before are great quality. I do appreciate all the help from everyone!

Re: 2001 ford F250 Auto Transmission

I have a 2001 F-250 Power Stroke with an Automatic transmission. When I pull out from a stop, the transmission winds up until i let off the gas peddle. Once I let off, then it shifts gears and runs normal through the rest of the gears till i have to stop or slow down again. Does anyone happen to know what the problem may be? I just changed the filter and fluid which had the burned fluid smell to it.

Re: 2001 ford F250 Auto Transmission

Yes, I know what the problem is. Your transmission needs to be rebuilt or replaced.

In 2001 Ford installed a new type of one way clutch called a Mechanical Diode. They were VERY prone to failure, so they went out of production towards the end of the 2001 model year. When they fail the symptom is a delayed or non-existent 1-2 shift. All other shifts are normal.

Re: 2001 ford F250 Auto Transmission

That is exactly how it is shifting. RPM's go up to 3,000+ and then it shifts, or sometimes, i have to let off the pedal to get it to shift. once it shifts into 2nd, everything else shifts fine.
Also, is there any easier way of looking to see which transmission I need, without dropping mine to look?

Thanks for any and all help.

2001 ford F250 Auto Transmission

Wish I would have listened to the guys on here the first time and went with BTS! I have an 01 and took mine to a reputable shop around here and I'm still having problems! Cost me $1300 and still have to come out of pocket more! If you have the resources go with BTS!

Re: 2001 ford F250 Auto Transmission

As i was leaving my shop the other day from having my brother look at the tranny tag for me, i noticed I can not put my truck all the way down into 1st gear. The shift lever on the column will not allowe me to drop past 2nd. it sits tight against the plastic. Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance.

Re: 2001 ford F250 Auto Transmission

I have a lot of thoughts. I'll even give you one about this problem.

I've seen this problem several times. Either rocks or ice collect around the trans where the shift cable attaches on the driver's side, blocking the shift lever from moving all the way.

Re: 2001 ford F250 Auto Transmission

We crawled under the truck again, and all the linkage is clear from any rocks, salt, mud or heck anything at all. however, I seen in a previous post on here that there are notches on the shift selector that are suppose to be aligned. They are not. My brother believes that may be leading to the problem as well as the shaft in the steering column not being installed correctly. And like i said, the actual shift lever, is against the plastic housing when i put it into 2nd gear. Not enough space for it to drop to the next gear down. I am just so frustrated right now with everything going wrong in such a short time.

Re: 2001 ford F250 Auto Transmission

OK Everyone... Scratching my head again. The last few days driving the truck, for like the first 15 miles or so the truck is now shifting perfectly fine. After that, it starts not shifting on it's own. Since I changed the filter and fluid, The fluid is not moving on the dipstick at all. Running or cold, its the same level. No one in my area is able to rebuild the transmission for at least another 6-8 weeks. Unless of course I drop my whole savings and take it to a major shop and have a jasper put in. (Never had luck with Jasper). Could anyone offer any advice on which direction to take now.

Re: 2001 ford F250 Auto Transmission

Find someone with a scan tool that can read live data. See what the PCM is telling the trans to do. I'd hate to see you rebuild the trans and still have the same problem.
