I Have Reverse but no Forward?!
Ok here is a weird problem,
I had a bunch of work done to my truck last week at the local ford dealership (suspension lift, gear ratio change, tranny cooler, etc.) The truck has been working fine since then, until yesterday night. I left work and everything was normal until about halfway home when the truck started shifting really weird. When stopped at intersections there was a ~2 second lag from when you hit the gas to when the truck would actually shift (very jerkily) and start moving foward. While driving the truck would also shift very strangely. I was going to take it in today to get this checked.
However this morning I have no forward at all. The truck goes into reverse completely normally and everything seems fine, but when you put it in drive, 2 or 1 the truck just revs up from idle to about 1000rpm and creeps forward very very slowly. You can rev the truck right up and nothing happens.
I also just stuck my head under the hood and noticed that the transmission fluid is above the top of the "do not add" mark on the dipstick. In fact, it is above the top of the white plastic tip on the end of the dipstick. I should note that ford did a complete tranny service (allegedly) when it was in for all the other work last week.
I have not a clue what could be causing this. Here is some possibly useful background info: 03 F150 5.4V8 Auto/4WD, 6" suspension lift, 3" bodylift, 4.56 gears, HD transmission cooler. I am also getting a code from the O2 sensors but that is it.
Any help is much appreciated. This is an incredibly strange situation.
