So I've had some ongoing issues with my truck that have finally caught up with me. Posted on other sites and received no answers. First, the truck. 2001 f-250 with 167k. Purchased a little over 4 years ago with 145k on it. I'm the second owner and truck was bone stock when purchased. First mods done were gauges and John Woods valve body. In time I've since done DIY
intake, exhaust, PHP 6 position chip, and riff raff billet compressor wheel. Auto too with the 4r100
Anyway, the problem. Truck now likes to die when put into drive, NOT reverse. Before it got to this point it would occasionally lug when coming to a stop but I could throw it in neutral and it would rev up to about 1k then come back to normal. In the past before this problem the truck would dip down to under 500 RPM when coasting to a stop and then converter would unlock, usually at 40 MPH. Again, it would drop in RPM then rev back up and smooth out. This stalling in drive now is the latest problem. I've found very little information or people that have had similar problems as this. The few I have have pointed to transmission solenoid pack. But again, they aren't clear as to this fixing the problem. I drained and dropped my pan today for the hell of it and found the normal small amount of sludge on the magnet. And checked the fluid before this too and it was at a good level.
Sorry for being so long winded, especially being a new member. Just looking for some help. Getting very frustrated and want to avoid sending it somewhere if possible. Thank you.
Forgot to add that the few things I've found have said a bad solenoid pack could cause the stalling in drive. Hence the thread name!
