Help with 1999 F250

    Hope someone can tell me where to start with this. I was driving my 1999 F250 with a V10 today and the truck was running great. I came to a stop sign and there was a grinding noise and it then sounded like I was dragging something under the truck. When I came to the stop sign I went to put the truck in park to get out and see what was up and the truck died. I didn't see anything under the truck. Tried to start it again and nothing. Wouldn't crank over at all. All of the electronics and lights worked fine but nothing when I tried starting it. Any ideas?? A friend said that maybe the starter engaged and is stuck, but looking for a place to start. Any help would be appreciated.

  2. Call me tomorrow if you want.7086708504 we can talk about it

    It sounds like the flexplate broke. It connects the crankshaft to the torque convertor and also has the teeth that mesh with the starter, which explains why it won't crank over.

    Thanks for everyone's input. I had time this am to work on the truck and it turned out to be the starter that the shaft was frozen or locked in the engaged position. I put a new starter in and all is well again. Thanks again!
