06 e350 trans problem

Hello all. Hoping someone can help me out with this trans issue I'm having.

The Truck

2006 E350 Super Duty

The Problem

For some reason I can't get it into gear. Only gear I can get it into is reverse, which works fine. D, 1, and 2 do nothing and it just revs as if it's in neutral. I don't know a lot about these trucks so I'm hoping some of you guys could help out.

Just scanned it, no codes whatsoever. Somebody want to chime in with a possible solution as to why this would be happening?

Re: 06 e350 trans problem

How many miles on it? Has it been serviced, did it just suddenly quit, is the fluid in the normal level?

Has about 60k on it. It has always been serviced by Ford for oil changes and the trans fluid is normal. Felt like it was 'slipping' when it was going through the gears but it still worked. Now all I get is reverse, everything else feels like neutral.

Not a lot of traffic in these forums. Anybody know which other trucks use this trans, if any? May be able to broaden out my search.

Re: 06 e350 trans problem

The F350 and some E and F 250s. Those transmissions are usually bullet proof. We have them on our transit buses and they run 300,000 miles with stop and go all day long. Have you asked the dealer wkat they think?

Dealer wants $90 just to find out what the problem is, and being the person that I am I want to at least figure out what it is so I can fix it, or possibly troubleshoot what it could be. So far I've got:

When going from park to d-1-2, nothing happens at all and it just revs as if it were in neutral. When going into reverse I can feel it 'engage' and I can drive it reverse without a hitch. No codes showed up at all.

Re: 06 e350 trans problem

It would be hard to say from here. It sounds like an internal problem but even the trans range snsor could be defective or the connection to it. You could try cleaning the connector and see if it helps. I'm not for throwing parts at a problem just to see if they help. You could call a few trans shops and see if they can give you an idea of what it could be. We never had any problems with them so I couldn't say. Trans shops see a lot of problems we wouldn't.

I'm not one for throwing parts at a car for nothing either, which is why it's still sitting here, not moving. Just trying to get some more info. I guess I was wondering if there were any common problems with these transmissions, but apparently these should be pretty solid. Thanks for all the help gonna have to dig around a bit more.
