Sun? Sometimes plenty, sometimes little here abouts, not like Sunny Rio Rancho, NM. [Smile]

News isn't plentiful right yet on the truck... Only thing I'm getting a clear handle on is if the tranny stuff gets it road worthy, it needs to keep on going on down the road...

Now to discern what to replace it with and if it isn't fixable, within it's value window, then what?

I love levity... if we didn't smile, we'd cry!

I think it's a point of fact we're to rejoice even in our trials, yes?

EZ to say, harder to do! [Frown]

Wasn't laughing when the guy at the tranny shop called today to say he'd changed out all the computer boards, installed fresh selenoids in the tranny and it still won't run!

Now what? They're lost and I'm up a tree...Woof-woof! [Frown]

Sooo..he was "shotgunning" and now he expects you to pay for it?
That's bad form, Doc. And poor troubleshooting at best. Ask him to kindly put back your original 'good' parts at no charge...or eat the cost of the new ones.
Not sure what your budget is (if any) but sometimes you're money ahead buying new with a warranty and feeling comfortable for the next decade. Prayers up for clarity and discernment.

Praying still brother and I know it's a hard pill to swallow when nothing seems to be going how we would like it to.
Tranny work can be "Super Expensive" and that ain't my area of expertise but the fella that helped me even told me that today's tranny's can be a nightmare with the computer stuff that makes them shift etc.
I was praying a "God Wink" would come your way and soon But He knows what is best for you.
Maybe you should just make a day trip and see what a new vehicle would cost and see what both vehicles traded in could bring .
Maybe not much but your headache will be gone ?
Just throwing that out there Doc I know you have to frustrated and praying God comes to your rescue and point you in the direction that brings relief to your problems brother. [pray]

Been reading that "worry" is a form of distrust of God's caring... [Frown]

No Shotgunning...there were codes for all the stuff he changed out, but there are still several codes and engine runs like crap, which is why they think it might be the main computer.

Took some garden goodies to a guy's house and backing around to leave, gouged sidewall on SUV tire!

Been told that trading (or trying) to trade 2 at once is like giving one away!

I'm thinking new SUV and loose the truck since here the land access is nill except for Nat'l forest which is too steep and rocky to hunt alone at this tender age, that, and hill folks up that way tend to trash rides sitting along the side of road so that wouldn't do! [Frown]

I don't need a 4x4 anymore living here!

Thanks for the prayers and support!

Doc there are many crossover SUV that might work for you and most anymore are All wheel drive .
The new Eco boost engines pack a punch in a little engine . I once drove a rented Kia and that thing got like 40 m.p.g in Tenn. They make small suv's that might fit your budget.
My buddy just sold his F250 4x4 to a friend of mine and bought a used Suv that looks like a Box sort of and he puts all his tools etc. in it and sort of looks like a jeep sort of. Can't remember the name but believe me if you had one those rubber mats that weathertech or Hercules liners make you could put a mature deer in the back with no problem.
Most come prepped with a hitch assembly and all you will need is a basket for back to carry on if that works best for you.
I'm just tossing this out there is all... [dunno]

Doc worry is paying interest in advance on the debt you may never owe. I use a Honda Element for driving around in the mountains here in New Mexico it works okay but I wish it had higher ground clearance.
It is written that Jesus said in this world you will have troubles but fear not for I have overcome the world. Also it is written that God has provided all things for life and godliness in Christ Jesus. So it is important to develop that relationship with Jesus to be able to overcome the problems that happen.
I'm continuing to learn how that is applied and the more I do the better things go.

I've been doing talking to Ford drivers and there are several things they do I don't care for on their rides.

The issue with the deer in the cockpit is the ticks and other vermin crawling off a dead carcass in the cockpit I ride in....

amicus mentioned the deer bags that hold it all in but so they hold in body heat... Not thinking I want that.

I don't like Ford Eco-boost and while it has ground clearance in "Cross overs" I don't know that is the direction I want to go especially with a 4 cyl...

But thanks for the input!

Galen, letting go, letting God is terribly hard for man and especially for an old German! [Smile]

I'm working on it! [dead horse]

Good banter Keith! [Smile] [Smile]

I think there must be another lesson in all this...one that loosing money on a vehicle is part of the price of holding onto one too long...it happens!

Nobody seems here to have anymore ideas on what's wrong or how to fix it. All the computer boards and tranny solenoids are replaced in the transmission with new and it still is throwing the same one or 2 codes as before for Solenoids that are BRAND NEW!

The common consensus is there is an electrical issue within the main computer...

I can't even get it to somewhere to trade it in this shape! [Frown]

Alas, I may just have to dump it for parts or something somewhere... get a few hundred outa it and be done with it! [Frown]

Good ride... 4x4, tow package, Standard Bed, well maintained till it decided to run like a dog!

Is there any way they can test the new parts they installed Doc? My son had a cam position sensor go out on his Ford. Replaced it,,,still doing the same thing. A lot of head scratchin later we had replaced the sensor four times before we got one that worked...notorious for being bad from the the factory. Im not sure what kind of shop you ended up at but around here its hard to beat the guys at AAMCO tranny shops. It couldn't hurt to ask what they would charge for troubleshooting your problem. Maybe a dealership could help you out too..
