I have a 2003 Ford E-450 with the 7.3L powerstroke. It has 107,000 miles. It has had a new transmission sometime after 40k, according to carfax. My transmission is slipping in 1st and 2nd gear. When I (finally) get up to 45 or 50 it shifts to 3rd and takes off fine.
I need some advice.
What can I expect when I drain the fluid and change the filter?
Also, has anyone done the transmission swap on an E450? I know doing it on a F350 truck is a pain, but I figured since you can see the top of the bell housing from inside the vehicle it might be easier. Any advice on "recovering" this transmission would be appreciated. Also, if you have experience with these ANY INPUT will help. I assume since it's a 2003... This is a 4R100. I don't have a lot of experience with Fords so any input on these transmissions would be great. Does anyone recomend a transmission? I'd like to be able to tow a 24 or 27 foot travel trailer. The goal is to live full time in the RV trailer and convert the ambo into a 1 to 3 day "adventure boondocker".. I'm obviously far from that if I have to drop $4-$5k into a new transmission.
