Dead on the road.

Tonight, coming home from Farmersville, on I30 east of Dallas. Running strong about 80 or so, all of a sudden it was like the truck shifted into neutral. Pulled over on the side of the road and motor was still running, but kinda rough. Still acting like neutral, shifted through all the gears, automatic (forgot to put that in my sig). Still acts like neutral. Decided to try the reboot thing, shut her down and no start, acts like the batteries are low, cranks but no busting off.

Volt meter still shows normal, fuel in the bowl, oil normal, tranny fluid there and shiny pink color (can't check level, not running).

Got towed home, 75 bucks. 35 miles, not a bad price.

No CEL.

When cranking oil pressure gauge does not even try to move.

Could I have lost my LPOP, why would that affect tranny?

Could I have lost alternator, would that affect tranny?

PLEASE HELP ME

Yep, I plan on at least throwing some donuts in there. Got the bolts soaking in PB balster now. This thing has to bust of and be running by 1:00 tomorrow at the latest. Tranny is sitting on the jack. I figure if I get started by 10:00. should have it running by noon easy.
I can see it by 2pm tomorrow..........Andy's CARNAGE 1.0! :eek:
Not me. When I fix something, it's fixed. I've been working on vehicles for over forty years. The reason it aint' running right now, is I talked myself int thinking I could bench a 4R100. I have installed a hundred or so TH350 and 400, by bench pressing them in place and pushing some blocks under the tail with my feet. When I grabbed that 4R100, I said OK, time for plan B. That puppy is like three TH400.
i hear ya! lol that is one heavy sum'bich. My ZF6 is heavy, i can only imagine what that auto weighs

I helped my buddy throw one back into a Superduty while it was up on a hoist. We used a tranny jack & it still was a pain!
On top of everything else, my drive way is on a hill. My truck is pointing nose down.
Got some pics this morning.

Not as devastating as some damage pics I have seen. But it will stop you from going down the road.

#####s, :D I grab them by the input and the out put and lift, But I am 6'1" 250 lbs. I was alittle pissed off my helper was Dicking off so I had to get it over under the truck all this was going on at a shop I used to work at we had sucky equipment so getting said trans on the trans jack was even a bigger biatch. :doh: But yes those biatches are heavy.
^^^^ Same here when I did mine I just grabbed it and tossed it in the back of the truck for the ride to the shop. It was a heavy pos but less screwing around when you can do it yourself:D
I had a flex plate on 96 Ford Contour that did the exact same thing.
Glad to hear ya got her running good again!
