Transmission leak

I have a 2001 f250 7.3 , after towing a 5th wheel RV 20mi. when I pulled out from under it I shut off the engine. upon restart it wouldn't move. trans fluid was leaking out the dust cover. I've learned via the forum my tans got hot and damaged the front seal. The fluid does not smell burnt. Any advice shared is appreciated

Definitely need to do the 6.0 transmission cooler modification. Get yourself a transmission temperature gauge as well. The Viton front seal is a better option - it doesn't get soft when hot.

Here's a write-up on the cooler upgrade - View attachment 6.0 Transmission Cooler Write up.pdf
