Tranny/diff slip?

Has anyone experienced this: When I back out of my driveway and put it into drive after having been in reverse, there is a momentary hesitation by the tranny to engage. Almost feels like a shudder or something slipping? I asked my dealership about it and they said to drop it off to be looked at, but their deisel guy is pretty busy right now so it would take a couple days

Same hear...always when you give it some throttle from a stop in reverse. Not if you ease into it though...for me at least

Trapit: that's exactly what happens to me.

Gutts: no tuner.

Crappy tranny programing. It happens from time to time with or with out a tuner. Its nothing to worry about just more of an annoyance than anything else.

Ford may have done this to keep people from shifting between forward gears and REVERSE while the truck is still moving. These trucks are HEAVY and that's tough on the driveline components. The delay should be GOOD, not an inconvenience. Its what you should be doing anyway. If it REALLY bothers you that much, just before you complete your reverse, shift into Neutral and then Drive. Just don't complain when the U-joints (or some other component) starts to wear and complain...

we are aware of the pause...we can pause all we want, but it'll still do it with throttle being applied while in reverse
