F250 auto woes

I have a 2005 F250 with 7.3 litre deisel.
When engine is cold select reverse almost stalls engine, engine gets real bad deisel knock.

When engine is hot go to select reverse it is like you have a manual and slipped foot off clutch engine stalls. Engine is not idling too low.

Bloody frustrating, Ford Techs no help as usual.

Re: F250 auto woes

I was thinking the torque convertor locking up could possibly cause this.

Okay will look further.

Some of those also had a special flywheel the would seize up causing this. The flywheel was "Spring Loaded" and they had some problems with them.

You do NOT have a 7.3 in a 2005 unless you or the previous owner did a swap. 7.3 stopped in 2003, and 6.0 began that same year.

In Australia we are always way behind.
My F-250 was purchased new July 2005

We haven't seen the 6 litre here yet.

Re: F250 auto woes

I am sorry. I did not notice your location. I am glad you have the 7.3. I appologize for sounding like a know it all (my wife says I am).

The 7.3L is way better anyway.
