I should let you know that the new Ford 10 speed trans (10R140) has hit a speed bump. It is not on a recall but has a known problem (one of the planetary gears) in units sold between certain dates.
My F-350 is not within the inclusive dates, so i should be O.K.
The Chevy version of this 10 speed is also having some teething problems in this regard.
This is not unusual for a new product to have a “period of adjustment”. The good news is Ford has a good track record of standing behind their product.
