    After plowing for about 4 last night my (4 speed auto) transmissions is slipping real bad. When I go in reverse the truck does not want to back up. If I baby it, it will back up, but not very fast. I think it's slipping in forward gear too. When I start out in first gear (auto trans) it will now clunk, if I get on the gas to fast.

    So, what's up. Torque converter bad? How hard/much to replace if so. Man it's all ways something.

    Thanks,
    Kent

    Also DON"T ever run with your hazard lights on. It sends a signal to your torque converter solenoid to shut off/on. So basicly your solenoid does a non stop on/off on/off and cooks your tranny. Only does it with fords. I work at a tranny shop so I do know what I am talking about.
