280k miles. I can drive about 40 miles then will hardly run. After shutting it off & restarting it runs okay again.

    Is the transmission oil cooler in the engine radiator could it be leaking internally? Perhaps post your question on a Ford truck specific website maybe someone knows a common problem.

    could be your oil cooler above your oil filter. they tend to go bad and leak.its a 2 pc assembly. one bolts to the blk above motor mount and the other pc attaches to that.
