Transmission problem
1985 Ford F150 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 177000 miles

hi my name is mark I have a 1985 ford f 150 pick-up truck its a 4x2 it has about 177000 miles on it and a three speed with overdrive manual transmission. I was driving to work today on the freeway when the truck would not get up to speed so I got off the freeway thinking that the truck needed to warm up a little bit more I let it warm up some more and proceeded on my way to work I had to drive up a hill and the truck felt like it didnt have the power to go up I made it to the top of the hill and when I tried to shift into another gear the truck would not shift into another gear I pulled the truck to the side of the road and it smelled like burning metal and I looked under the truck there was a bolt missing on the transmission. So my question is do you think the transmisson is shot or is it just the clutch that went

Do you
have the same problem?
