dies when shifted into reverse and when stopped in drive, FIXED!!
ok this problem started this morning and the truck has been running great up untill now.
when i shift from park to reverse the volt guage drops off and the truck stumbles and dies unless i give it some gas.
when i shift to drive from reverse it stumbles but doesnt die. other then that it runs great.
there was a shift kit with new filter and fluid installed a couple weeks ago so im sure its not a fluid issue...
ive read comments on the iac possibly needing to be cleaned but i couldnt find any pics or other info on that.
any other thoughts would be great. or info/pics of the iac valve.
thanks in advance.

Midnight I will start by saying Im clueless but just for giggles pull the fuse for the reverse lights. See if it stops. If so I dont think I have to say anymore. If not ehh, 2 second check No harm no foul .. You have been around a while, I assume there is no codes based off your time on the forum...
I plan on checking the codes tonight. From most of what I could find while doing a google search it wither pointed to bad/low tranny fluid (mine is new an full) or the IAC valve. But I couldn't find any info on the valve.
After reading the link on the the valve that was posted I now know what it does and where it is.
Steering my truck while at an idle or turning into a parking space while idling has been becoming hard to do the last couple months, I'd have to give it has to turn the wheel. I just thought that my pump was on the way out but if the IAC is suposed bump the idle when turnin at an idle I'm thinking that it might not be the pump....
I'll pull codes when I get home tonight and see of anything shows up.
ok i went through the codes and as far as active codes in the koeo and the koer there is nothing i just get the 111 all clear
theres 2 in the code memory
542 Fuel pump open, bad ground or always on - - Power / Fuel Pump Circuits
543 Fuel pump relay or battery power feed was open - Power / Fuel Pump Circuits
im guessing i get those where is it dual tanks? both tanks work fine i use them on a regular basis.
followed the test for the IAC as well and removed the plug while runnign and the truck stumbled and idle dropped and was close to dying. thats the same thing thats happening when i put it in reverse if its idling.
i removed the valve and it looked pretty dirty so i sprayed it out good with throttlebody cleaner and it looked alot better.
This TSB article is being republished in its entirety to revise the Service Procedure.
Some vehicles may stall when the transmission is placed into gear. This may be caused by the transmission fluid filter becoming detached and/or loose.
Install a new design fluid filter and seal assembly. The new design has legs molded into the plastic filter cover (Figure 1). This new design filter does not require using the rectangular transmission pan magnet.
Follow all the normal diagnostic procedures outlined in the appropriate model/year Service Manual. Repair as required. If all normal diagnostics fail to correct the problem, refer to the following Steps.
1. Remove the transmission fluid pan to determine if the transmission fluid filter has dropped down or is not firmly seated in the pump bore.
2. If the filter has dropped down into the pan, discard the filter assembly and remove the filter seal from the pump bore.
CAUTION : BE CAREFUL NOT TO SCRATCH OR DAMAGE THE PUMP BORE WHEN REMOVING THE SEAL.
NOTE : DO NOT REMOVE THE ORIGINAL FLUID PAN MAGNET FROM THE FLUID PAN OTHER THAN TO CLEAN AND REINSTALL.
3. Install a new Filter and Seal Assembly (F6TZ-7A098-AB: 4X2, F6TZ-7A098-BB: 4X4). Refer to Figure 1.
CAUTION : DO NOT USE THE RECTANGULAR TRANSMISSION PAN MAGNET WHEN USING EITHER OF THESE NEW DESIGN FILTER AND SEAL ASSEMBLIES.
CAUTION : DO NOT REPLACE A REUSABLE PAN GASKET WITH A CORK GASKET, THIS MAY RESULT IN A TRANSMISSION FLUID LEAK. CLEAN AND REUSE UNLESS DAMAGED. REPLACE CORK GASKET WITH CORK GASKETS.
4. Refill transmission as required using MERCON(R) Multi-Purpose Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) (XT-2-QDX).

Today it started acting up when I stop at a light as well. Not every one but if I sit at a red light for 30sec or so it will sputter and die if I don't hit the gas that's when stoped at a light in gear with brake on.... Any other ideas??
When u switched from the stage 2 to stage 1 springs in the shift kit it was HARD to pull the filter off to get at the valve body and it went back in just as hard...so I wouldn't think it would fall back out.
So next thing I should try is to change the ATF and filter again?
Should I get a ford filter?
Last one was an aftermarket one.
Any reccomendations on the fluid? I might as well do it again too. I'll call this one a flush
Another note, when I first tarted having issues in reverse I checked the fluid and it seemed a little bit above the full mark. When I checked it yesterday it was almost a liter over.... I sucked a liter out the dipstick with a drill pump to get me with in the cross hatch On the dipstick could that be because the filter fell?
