From "D" to "R" @ 80mph...

Driving an 06 E350 today, just cruising on the highway when all of a sudden the rear wheels lock up and the van starts bucking all over the place. The engine stalled and would not TURN OVER for a couple minutes. Once it restarted, I was able to get off the highway safely but no matter what gear I selected D,3,2,1 and even N it still felt like Reverse was "partially" engaged. It didn't look like there was any ATF on the dipstick. Any theories on what failed mechanically? Haven't had a white knuckled ride like that in years.

Re: From "D" to "R" @ 80mph...

Thats a new one. Its almost like the reverse solenoid is shorted out or stuck open or something.

Add some fluid too.

I really have nothing else to offer. Good luck though!

I knocked my old toyota into reverse once at 70

You said you didn't see any fluid on the dipstick, did you try filling it just to see what happens?

Re: From "D" to "R" @ 80mph...

Its a company truck and it got towed so I did not have a chance to pull the codes or add fluid. It doesn't have a trans temp gauge and I never saw an idiot light. While it was parked and running you could see the reverse lights flickering.
