transmission problems

My truck wont shift out of first. Once you get it to it shifts fine from then on. The only way to get it to shift is to run up to about 3500 rpm and then let out of the throttle and it will shift then it shifts good. Thanks in advance

Auto or manual? Any mods? How many miles?

Re: transmission problems

Sounds like 1st gear clutch. My 2nd gear clutch just took a crap and was doing the same thing, but just in 2nd gear. I am just going ahead and getting my trans rebuilt.

02 7.3 with a little of this and a little of that.

Re: transmission problems


used engines for sale

One of the most common misconceptions about rebuilding transmissions is that it will restore the transmission to a new condition, but this is definitely not true. Although it can help you restore the peak operating efficiency of the transmission, it is less effective in extending its lifespan. Rebuilding transmissions needs different parts of the transmission to be changed, making some of its parts older than or as old as the original parts.
I was in death valley on a geaology trip for college a few years back and we blew the rebuilt engines for sale. It was scary i will never buy a used transmissions again, because its basically just used but more expensive go figure.
