2005 6.0 F350 Transmission

Hi All.

I have just started hearing and feeling some stuff that i can only assume is Tranny. I have 103,000 mile son it and have had no issues to date. Basically, last week it happened for the first time and has happened a few times since (very sporadic, and not consistant at all). Basically, it pretty much always happens at slow speeds often when decelerating. It will sound like i picked up a tree branch and am dragging it (around 20-30 mph). Then when I slow down to a turning speed on a surface street (~~10 mph) the the scraping noise will increase to a "hiss" and then i will feel what i can only assume is the tranny fall back into gear.


ANY HELP or comments are greatly appreciated. Not a mechanic myself. But a bunch of my buddys and cousin are. Im just trying to get some infor on this issue before I blow my life saving on a new tranny.

Thanks,

Tony.

After you blow your life savings on the transmission spend a few bucks and change the u=joints in the driveshaft. That will fix this problem.

Not from me. The transmission isn't causing this and that's where my expertise lies.

Re: 2005 6.0 F350 Transmission

check the track bar,

are tires balanced?

leave the truck off, have someone sit in the drivers seat with key on engine off, you get under the front end and have them turn the wheel back and forth, this will show you where the slop is.
On my jeep it was the track bar was worn, but until I did this test, I couldn't see it, but my 10 year old turned the wheel with the engine off the best he could, and it stuck out like a sore thumb.
