2002 F-250 Superduty

I have a 2002 F-250 Superduty diesel truck that I bought new but it had
around 900 miles on it. It has an automatic overdrive transmission. At 600 miles
past the warranty the transmission started acting up. Ford refused to make it
good. So I purchased a new transmission from Ford with a 3 year 36,000 mile
warranty. When I haul a load with the truck with this new transmission with
about 1200 miles on it, the transmission heats bad with the gauge going all the
way into the red if you don't stop to let it cool. The overdrive light also
will blink. The old transmission never did heat under a load. I took the
truck into the dealer and they determined the transmission had a bad solenoid.
They repaired it, but I have not hauled a heavy load yet to see if it is fixed.
But getting to the main point. When I just recent took the truck in for this
problem I went back to talk to the transmission mechanic. I asked him if
Ford had much trouble with this transmission and he told me that they did. There
was a problem with the drum. I believe he also said that there had been a
recall. He went on to say that they resolved this problem by 2003 and up. If
Ford was having this problem then they should be responsible for my
transmission. I have scoured the Internet but I cannot find any recalls for this. Do you
have any advice?
Thank You, Randy
