97 Ford F150 Hesitates after putting in gear...

Asked by Sep 28, 2017 at 05:15 PM about the 1997 Ford F-150

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi, I've got a 1997 Ford F150 that started out
dying when I made sudden stops or put it in
reverse. There was a slight problem about a
month later where I used the 4WD and it
ended up trying to slip out of 4WD, got hung
and the truck wouldn't move at all. We found
that and fixed that then about a week later, I
was coming down the interstate and the OD
light started flashing. Now when you put it
into drive or reverse- it just wants to sit
there. It ends up moving some, but it will
hesitate like I've put it in neutral, goes a bit
and hesitates, goes a bit and hesitates. I just
moved it to the other side of my house and
it's on an incline and it didn't wanna go in
drive or reverse....it acted just like it was
spinning-felt the same way, too, but I looked
and none of the 4 tires were spinning. The
OD light ain't blinking no more, but I've not
had it out my sub- division neither. Maybe
y'all can help me, maybe, figure out what it
goin on with it....I don't know a whole lot
about trucks, but this was my Brothers
before he passed away and now I've got it
and wanna take care of it best I can. Thanks
in Advance!! ~Jennifer~
