2006 Ford E-350 SD XLT 5.4L with a 4R70W

I saw the rebuild diary here and I also had the manual to follow along with. I rebuilt the transmission with new steels and frictions. Replaced the seals that needed it. Although, I didnt replace the EPC or open up the valve body...

Tranny shifts into 2nd(its does go into 2nd initially) and immediately flares up (slips) like I am in neutral.
If I put it into manual 2 it will shift into 2nd.

The shifter goes P R N D 2 1 so I cant manually shift into 3rd.

BUT if I push the button to turn off OD, it shift fine 1st, 2nd, 3rd.

What gives?

I would really appreciate any help here.. :thumbsup:

How did you make out? If you did all that work and there is no change I am thinking VB.
