I Started Up My Truck In My Driveway And As I Put The Truck In Drive Ii Noticed A Slight Slippage In My Transmission, I Didn’t Think Too Much Of It Because At The Time The Temperature Outside Was About 10 Degrees And I Assumed It Was Because Of The Extreme Cold. As I Traveled Approx. 1/2 Mile I Noticed As I Was Accelarating That The Truck Seemed To Not Want To Go, I Was Able To Nurse It Another 1/2 Mile To My Mothers House Where I Discovered That The Hose Popped Off Near The Radiator And Poored Out Transmission Fluid. I Put The Hose Back On And Tightened It Back Up And Was Able To Put 6 Qts Of Transmission Fluid Back In. This Seemed To Correct The Problem And I Thought That All Was Okay, But, I Was Wrong! On Jan.8th ,2001 I Noticed That As My Wife And I Were Out That It Was Beginning To Catch Hard When I Was Starting Out From A Dead Stop. Well By The Time I Got Home Which Was 10 To 15 Minutes Later I Stopped By My Mailbox And I Was Trying To Edge Up Closer And It Would Not Go Forward, But I Noticed That I Could Go Backwards With No Problem. Well I Had To Have It Towed To A Transmission Shop And He Told Me That I Probably Burned Out The “bands” In The Transmission And It Could Cost Me Anywhere Between 800 To 1700 Dollars For Repair Depending On How Many Were Burned Out. Thats Where I,m At Now And Is There Anything I Can Do To Get ford To Help Me, Ha,ha!*ak
