Trans actin up

I have noticed past couple days when i pull up to a red light, its like my trans won't go down into first and you can bump the throttle and you feel it drop in and shift fine. It doesn't slip, shifts great, fluid level is fine and fluid is good. Any ideas? its a 2000 f250 4x4 auto.

Thanks

Re: Trans actin up

no one have any kinda idea. The o/d light will flash for a second and then quit and truck shifts out fine. My code scanner says no codes but i'm pretty its just not picking them up. I know I need to find out the code, but I just thought someone might have had this happen before and could give some advice of where to look.

Re: Trans actin up

Without the code I can't make a reasonable guess.

Re: Trans actin up

Alright, Well I tightened up the torx head bolts on the steering column that hold the shifter linkage and it tightened up my shifter and it hasn't acted up anymore. I was having problems with my truck not starting in park and would have to put it in nuetral, so i'm just wondering if it wasn't registering what gear it was suppose to be in good.

Re: Trans actin up

That's an output speed sensor code. It almost always is either the output sensor or the wiring to the sensor. It could be the target wheel, too, but that is VERY rare.

Re: Trans actin up

No, they are not expensive. Then again, my idea of expensive might be different than yours....

Re: Trans actin up

Can you give more detail as to what the truck feels like or acts like when you say it doesn't feel like it goes down into first? When mine started to go, my torque converter wouldn't unlock at times when I came to a stop, so it was real sluggish and had that sluggish sound and kind of lurched a bit, then would catch itself and unlock.
