'97 F-150 Trans. Problem After Fluid Change

My transmission had been leaking for awhile. I found the pan bolts where loose and 2 missing. I decided to change the gasket and filter. It ran ok for about a week and now is slipping. It seems to be fine in reverse but basically no forward. Any help out there?

It's possible the filter dropped down. You could check that abd if not, it could just be coincidental and it was ready to go due to being low once in awhile.

If the filter dropped it should also effect reverse correct. You can feel it drop into reverse, but you can't even feel it drop into any forward gear even dropping it into 1st and 2nd. Suppose something maybe stuck in the valving. I have never done anything on an automatic transmission, this is even a first on a filter change.

I'd still check the filter and if it's okay, it'll have to go to a trans.shop.

Was the torque convertor drained ? ( if it's got a plug ) Suppose it could be a bit of s*** in the valve block , bit of a long shot maybe . Have you rechecked ATF level ? Take it seal on filter was o.k or replaced ?

The 97 does have a plug.

No I didn't drain the torque converter. Yes I replaced the seal on the filter. I'll drop the pan and recheck all. I'll let you know.
