What would be the out come on a ford f 150 transmission if the cooling lines were mixed up?

If the trans cooler is in the bottom of the radiator I don't think it would have any effect. If the cooler is on the side of the radiator I think it would reduce the cooling of the trans.

IDK how you mixed them up but so be it. As Hammer said is true. It's the cooler end or bottom of radiator when warmed up you probably feel one line a bit cooler than the other either way.

You didn't list a model year isn't the world but if you work this truck hard add a cooler in front of radiator and or with A/C in front of that for cheap. Easy instructions IMO does more than just the radiator but still uses it. $25 buck item kind of a universal fit thing trucks should have plenty of easy room if you wish to do that,

Thanks for the responses. I don't think I did mix them up but I was just wondering what would be the outcome if I did. I am getting speed sensor errors. The 2004 f-150 ford truck shifts fine but after about 100 yards it drops back to first gear. And the overdrive off light on the shift lever keeps blinking

Lines shouldn't do that! Lines, if you replaced them DO make sure they don't rub anywhere- they'll leak just from that. If worried just anyway feel which one is cooler quickly after a normal drive.

You should have codes for this behavior if posted the site does have a specialist in transmissions hope he'll be by, Gary.

Allow some time for him or get codes now can only help also please say if fluid is dark or a normal color,

The flashing overdrive light does indicate codes stored but you will likely need a professional scan tool to access transmission codes.
