the transmission has got hot and blew out the front pump seal. have seen a lot of these trucks do this. have to pull trans and torque converter to replace seal. probably not hurt trans. get it to a shop that works on transmissions.

if the egr cooler is leaking, it will loosen carbon in the intake and it gets to the egr valve and sticks it open. if egr valve is stuck open, it will blow black smoke.

ford does not show towing with all 4 tires on the ground. they show using a dolly for the front wheels. not sure if installing a pump will protect the transmission or not. might ask a trans technician.
Car Review: 2009 Hyundai Accent
August 01, 2013, 08:03 PM
Bought this car new. Was driving 150 miles a day back and forth to work. Needed a cheap car that had a long warranty as I was racking up miles on car I was driving pretty quick. Did normal maintenance up to 35k miles. Took to dealer with a/c problem. Compressor bad, headlights peeling chrome inside, trans slip in 3rd gear. Repaired all but the trans. Was told to drive it till trans went out and get it replaced. 55k now and still slips. Other than that, been a good car. Averages 35mpg on highway.

Bought this Eddie Bauer Expedition in June. Had 78k miles on it. Was a trade in with a bad engine knock. Pulled oil pan, #8 rod bearing bad, crankshaft ok. Put it together, have put about 3k miles on it since repair. Drives good. Has 4x4 and air suspension. Not great on gas milage but try not to drive a lot. Great to pull with. Looking for third row seat as it was gone.
