The other day as I was downshifting into 2nd and making a corner the transmission locked up and would not go into any gear (it was like the old column shifters stuck in 3rd and 2nd at the same time). After looking things over and pulling the top off the transmission. We found a lot of metal flakes in the oil and a lot of slack in the main shafts and after checking on the cost repairs (4300.00 new /rebuilt trans and 800.00 for clutch + labor) made the decision to trade the truck. So the reason for this post is if you are looking at a used CTD in the north Texas area PLEASE contact me before you buy. New 02 should be at the ******* on Monday after that I could give more details if anyone is interested. Also if this post is in the wrong area please feel free to move it.
