    I started driving my new to me '02 f350 sd 7.3 4x4 automatic. Going into reverse from any other gear takes about 2 or 3 seconds to engage. Could this be a problem or is that how this trans works. Has 135K ----------------------------------------H

    Our 6.0 SD trucks have been blowing trannys this year. 3 so far, starts with reverse delay, ends with reverse washers and wave spring(or something like that), coming loose and wearing through the case. End result, new trans and no core credit as case is destroyed.........OH and a 4-5 thousand dollar repair.

    If it craps the bed, check out BTS transmission.
    It is the last tranny you will buy for that truck. Then take it out and put it in the next.
    Your E4OD is dying a slow death right now.
