7.3 auto trans problem

I have a 95 f350 w/auto o/d and it started not downshifting when coming to a stop.It will now be in high gear at a stop sign or light unless you pull the shift handle all the way down to low gear and then it will only go down to 2nd gear. That is either in or out of o/d, does not matter. I changed the fluid and filter and made no difference. Fluid looked good and did not smell burnt. Some metal on magnet. Can anyone help, Thanks

Re: 7.3 auto trans problem

Is the OD light flashing? Sounds Like the tranny is in limp mode which only gives you 3rd gear. get a good scanner and pull the codes to see what is going on. Good luck
