Do you have a code reader? If so have you plugged it in to see if any codes come up?

You have a tranny problem and you need to have a transmission shop look at it. The Ford dealer is going to rip you off!

ford is lying.

take it to a trans shop first. you can do a fuel pump for cheap, and now is a great time to put an exhaust on the truck if that truly is the problem.


sounds like your trans is in limp mode.

Do you mean how the fuel lines attach to the fuel pump on top of the tank? If so, you can use zip ties, that's what I did after I broke one of mine and getting the tip from this website. Tell them you will not be paying for it since they broke on them! They are just plastic clips that get brittle over time. They will tell you you need to replace the fuel line. You can get two fuel pumps for $500. They are trying to screw you. Tell them you are going to post their name on this website and tell everyone how unhappy you are with this dealership.
