A guy at work has the exact same truck as mine, 2003 F-150 XLT 4X4 Super Crew 4.6 triton AOD. He has water in the tranny 40,000 miles on truck.

I checked mine and it is fine, but how would water get in the tranny? He said that he has never been in water deep enough to reach the tranny, the tranny has never and still does not leak.

Any ideas as to how the water would get in the tranny, so I can keep an eye out for mine and know what to look for so it does not happen to my truck.

Trans fluid is water cooled in the radiator. He can check for trans fluid in the coolant.

Or..........somebody put water directly in the tranny. I have a '05 FX4 Super Crew (with nice new shiny chrome bumpers) and there is no water in my tranny.

Is he sure there was water in the tranny? Has he had the fluid tested?

There was issues with GM trucks getting rainwater in the tranny via the dipstick. Maybe he has this problem,too. The trans case has a vent tube in it. It may be plugged or blocked.
