Exclamation 96 f 250

Hi I have a 1996 ford f 250 with a 351 Windsor with 78,000 original miles. It has the e4od transmission. it was shifting hard so I checked the fluid it was low. So I filled it up help with shifting but still shifts hard into 3rd gear. I do smell something burnt after running the truck. Anybody know what could be the issue? Any help would greatly appreciated. Thanks

Burned smells are usually a brake dragging or something dripping on your exhaust.

Don't drive your vehicle if you have indications of transmission trouble. It is the death of a transmission.

Hard shifts are often because of the MLPS, also known as TRS, or a bad electrical connection to the transmission. Check all of the connections.

There are about 675 threads here exactly like this one. There are about two or three people who answer them. If you run some searches with those people's names you can learn a lot about your truck.

Check for codes, doesn't matter of the CE light is on or not and any code for engine or trans could produce this type of problem.

Post up the actual code numbers and when you got them... in the first batch(KOEO) or the second batch(CM).

The computer will report 2 sets of codes when you do the Key On Engine Off(KOEO) test. The first are for problems the computer sees right now, after all those are done there is a short pause and the computer will report a second set of codes for persistent problems that have occurred in the past and have not been fixed, those are Constant Memory(CM) or stored codes.
