Can anyone recomend a good tranny shop/guy in the Harrisburg PA area? The tranny in my '99 F-350 is starting to act up, and the 2 shops I have been to have said there is nothing wrong, but I know there is a problem when the OD light starts to blink.

Hello Rick,

Sorry to hear about the tranny problems. If you don't get a good recommendation for repair here you might want to post over on the Ford Diesel Stop forum, there's lots of stuff there about the Superduty trucks' transmissions and engines. There are a few Ford mechanics hanging out there too, maybe one would know what's ailing your tranny.

I'll also link this thread to our Tow Vehicle forum, might get additional exposure to a few additional knowledgeable members there.

I do recall reading on the Ford diesel site (actually called TheDieselStop now) about the OD light blinking. Go there and do a search to see if it is serious or not. If you don't have the link, here it is

The blinking light can mean many things, this is fords way of giving you a code of whats wrong.
May or may not be the trans. In you owners manual it may have the code to coinside with the blink pattern. Something is wrong, if you cant get it figured out, get it to a dealer to read the codes on the computer. Should only be a $40 diogostic fee.

Well, took the truck into Cottman transmission for their free trans 21 check. They pulled a P0500 code which is a Vehicle Speed Sensor Malfunction. The tranny fluid was bright red and no other apperant mechanical issues. Went to the local dealer, $27 for a new sensor, in 5 minutes I had it changed, and no more transmission issue. Apperantly with the faulty sensor, the tourque converter didn't know when to lockup and the line presuure was out of wack causing the shifting issues. Free tranny check and a $27 part, all good again.
