    Mu 2000 F150 has been having trany issues, it's slipping but would a slipping tranny make the truck feel like it's lost some power taking off from a dead stop? I don't have a factory tachometer and my truck has factory exhaust so I can't really hear if the RPMs are reving do to the tranny slipping in first gear. Yeah, I'm kind of hard hearing.

    Yea obviously it would feel under powered. Limp it to a trany shop before you burn it up. Could be a ton of things or simply bad/low fluid

    No but I'm leaning towards it being the torque converter. I hope it is anyways!
