This morning coming home from work I noticed me check gauge light was on and my tow/haul light was flashing and trans temp gauge was in the red. Anyone with any ideas of what it might be? I was not towing and it was a 13km trip home from work.:confused:

Most likely it's a bad temp sensor. That's not uncommon.

sounds like your trans is going, mine went yesterday! the tow haul light was flashing and it was shifting hard. it would also slip out of gear and rev up while driving. Now ford wants to split the cost on doing the trans hahahahahaha its got 39,000 on it they better try harder....

Fordboyyfm, I don't know if you've seen any of my posts about my delay from p-r-d but doug said something about the interal harness. Do you think replacing that could solve my problem? I have no codes and my tow haul doesn't flash and it shifts flawlessly with around town driving. Just an odd delay that doesn't last for more than 2secs.

I can't believe dealerships hired that guy and the local dealership wouldn't hire me to be a service writer. that guy is wrong or you may have misunderstood.

To the OP: you're gonna wanna get the tranny codes read then go from there. I received some great info from Mark K. over on tds and to my understanding there is no code stored unless the tow/haul starts flashing.

Yes, unless you bought an extended warranty.

Starting with trucks sold in July, 2006, the powertrain warranty was changed to 5 years/60,000 miles from 3 years/36,000 miles.

yea but for all the ford trucks i have owned and do own i could easily sell my 3 powerstrokes and have 3 duramaxs next time around which isnt a very good desision on their part but ohh well, plus if a 55k dollar stock truck cant hold up for more than 40k miles thats sad also it was in the shop 2k ago for head gaskets its kinda buggn me now!!!
