Wink 1996 f250 Ext cab SB 2 wd turbo deisel

i recently bought a F250 Turbo Diesel and the transmission slips in second, it will shift depending on how fast you accelerate sometimes and sometimes you have to feather the gas a couple times.

I was told the torque would be different and so I would have to look for a transmission for a diesel than a regular gas motor.

In any case, that is about all i would like to know. Is this true?
If not... obviously I am just going to buy another truck to rip apart for the tranny. Ideally if possible I would prefer to change it over to a five speed while its all out but prolly just go with the first thing that fits!

Doesn't matter which tranny you get (auto or manual), you need one for a diesel. They are built different as deisels have so much more torque. The diesel torque converter has a different stall speed too.

you're gonna have to match the tranny to the ECU. The tranny shift points are controlled by the ECU in the 96's
