We had a brand new Ford F-250. One of the fuel injectors was stuck open and it flooded the engine with gas. Ford replaced the engine. However, the dealer forgot to add transmission fluid. On the way home the vehicle seized up on the freeway with a screeching halt. Ford then replaced the transmission. My question is: What are the chances of further drive-train damage to the vehicle due to the transmission seizing? Thank you so much!!!

Lori Johnson, Owner and Instructor at Ladies Start Your Engines Dear Stacey,

Patty Streeter,  at AskPatty.com Further damage could possibly have been caused to the rear differential and the transfer case if the truck is 4 wheel drive, this is unlikly but it is possible.

Jamey Wozniak, Owner and CEO at Joe's Hitch, Trailer & Truck Accessories Hi Stacey - First you are lucky that the dealer has been supportive. There should be no further issues and the dealer will most likely support any other issues as I'm sure the whole dealer knows about your truck. Just make sure to be on top of the maintenance and keep in touch with the dealer on any problems. Safe Travels - Lauren Fix, The Car Coach®
