cooked tranny, 00 f350 7.3 auto

Well, while at a western fair and some mudbogs/demo derby, i cooked the tranny in my tow truck. i was yanking out a demo dderby car, then once it was free, i tromped on the gas to get thrugh the mud pit to leave the area, with me being an idiot and not double checking, it was in 2nd, not drive, my indicator is broken, stays on 1st. it has no drive gear, no 2nd or 1st, just reverse. luckily, no one saw this incident because its a very flashy truck, and i was promoting the new business. now for the main question, how bad is it to change the tranny, its has pto capabilities on the top, where my pto pump is located if that helps. its got overdrive. is there anything i should look out for? or is this something that can be fixed in my yard or basement. it looked pretty bad watching my wrecker getting hauled across the city on another flatbed.
thanks,
Richard

4r100.

Save yourself the time and aggravation and money, get a BTS the first time.

Brians Truck Shop

It cost just a bit more than a heavy duty reman from ford, but the best peformance, and best service you'll get for your truck. Save a little by going elsewhere, but it will end up costing more in the end.

Ask me how I know this.

With a tranny jack, and a helper you should be able to do the swap in 2 to 3 hours.

Tranny swaps are easy. The type of tranny jack can determine how long it takes to put it back in. It is probably worth it to fab some kind of cradle for it so you can lift it straight up with out the tranny twisting or rocking.

Re: cooked tranny, 00 f350 7.3 auto

Watched Brian take mine out of my truck at his shop and he was done in 35 minutes. He had a modified jack with a custom cradle on the top and he just jacked the rear wheels off the ground about 18-20 inches and rolled under. Now I imagine he has more practice than you would, but it would appear from watching him that it is not a difficult but there seemed to be some long extensions involved with swivels.

Re: cooked tranny, 00 f350 7.3 auto

I got access to a huge swivel in any direction 400 lbs house raising orange son of a b!tch! but is there any reason why I would lose just forward gears? my buddy came and checked things out, we both noticed it wants to go into gear, but doesnt. the pto pump still works well and still makes the engine idle to 1500 rpm. it still has fully functioning reverse. could this be a computer issue? speed sensor? is there ground wires to look at that are known to cause this? my battery light flickers wildly at any rate lately, but the obd2 reads no codes. before i pull the tranny and dish out a grand, Id like to know if its something simple. the fluid does not smell burn or appear to be discolored. the fluid and filter was changed with every oil change every 5000 kms as specified.
thanks,
Rich

Re: cooked tranny, 00 f350 7.3 auto

Ok, Well, my beliefs of the tranny failure are leaning more toward electrical more than ever. I hosed the mud out from under it, looked at the wired leading to the shifter computer, a black wire is disconnected, plus its all taped where the splice is to the pto pump. but heres the more aggrivating part, i cant start it, the whole electrical system has failed, i put the key on, the wipers go, headlights flicker, all dash lights flicker like water in fuel, low fuel, seatbealt, everything, radio also tries to pop on and off and relays click. so, im going to randomly look for anything since i have no clue what to look for. im beginning to think, the flickering battery light was leading to something like this. any ideas? thanks

Re: cooked tranny, 00 f350 7.3 auto

Sounds like a low battery to me.
Put the charger on there get em fully charged then try again. I wouldnt think that would cause the tranny issue though. Mine ran fine even with dischraged batteries right up to the point when there wasnt enough juice to run the gauges, then it shut off.(alternator went south)
