A factory authorized ford dealer. The best part is that I took it in for a transmission issue. They told me they wouldn't diagnose the trans until the motor is fixed. I obtained a copy of the estimate and diagnosis and declined repairs.
Here's the codes that were pulled.
P0500
P2285
U0155
P0730
P2703

What do you guys think?
Im on my way with a gooseneck as we speak to the pick it up.

Long story short. I bought the truck 2months ago, along with a 2400 dollar warranty.

The truck was towed in which cost me 150. Diagnosis was 150I due to the repairs not being covered. Then it cost me another 150 to get it back home. So im at 450 with a truck that wont shift out of third and only goes 30mph.

I would love to have a second opinion done but I can't keep blowing money and not getting anywhere. This truck is my business and my office. Its too expensive to have sitting for too much longer. This is driving me nuts Haha.

Pm me and if you got the truck I can hopefully walk you through your own diagnosis and help you out. Phone conversation would be best.

Update: I had a friend tell me to check my grounds. He did some dot connecting and we realized none of these problems started until I tried a few 15psi 4wd launches. Could a loose ground cause this?

I still have reverse yet the truck rocks/shakes pretty bad in reverse like its got a huge cam in it. Had a buddy look underneath while this was going on and he stated that the driveshaft was torquing in sync with the truck.

If the ground idea sounds plausible to you guys is there a diagram of ground locations to use as a checklist to look at?

Thanks for all the help guys I really appreciate it!

I've got an in cab video of it driving but its over a minute long and this droid wont let me email it or send anywhere. In third gear it'll only go thirty or forty at about 3k rpms and you can feather the pedal and it almost feels like its in neutral.
