You burned up your transmission. Have it rebuilt or buy a replacement. Running it without sufficient fluid toasted it.
a . is a wonderful punctuation mark. In fact, it is the FIRST punctuation mark taught to kids at a very young age. I highly recommend them.

And his hoes blew. Imagine that. Is that uncommon? 🥴

Yikes! I had to read that three times to figure out the relationship between the chipper and the truck🧐

The only thing I managed to decipher from this is that Autozone sells hoes...... OMW.....to Autozone.

The hoes would be wood chippers if they blew with a broken tooth...🤭

What the hell? I gave you a zero sarcasm answer with truth in it and you come back b!tching at me about it? Autism or not, I gave you straight answers to your question. No mocking, no insults. And you decided me telling you you burned up your trans is being an a-hole? WTF? Autism or not (my Godson is autistic so its a serious issue for me) you, sir, are the a-hole. And you've earned a spot on the ignore list. Good luck fixing your truck. A-hole.
You sign on with a screen name like that, and post a run on paragraph... how were we supposed to take it. Dave's not here.

What he said. Your transmission probably needed like two gallons to limp home, not two quarts. Why did you have ATF with you anyway? Losing some over time I take it? Adding fluid instead of figuring out why probably lead to your blowout, that was an ignored clue. Easy to ignore important things when you are high all the time.
Next time call your friend and ask them to bring you what you need (more fluid) or wait for the tow. As you are about to learn that would have been much cheaper.

Like he said, welcome to the real world. Most of the time folks will work with your issues so long as you are doing the best you can with the challenges life hands you instead of using them as a crutch. Nobody's perfect. Present yourself as a pothead who can't communicate better than a second grader and the real world will chew you up and spit you out.
There are tools nowadays to help you overcome if you care to try. Cotana for example will help you with punctuation and using the correct words (hose vs hoes) assuming you are using windows 10, if you are using your phone it has a similar feature:
To activate speech-to-text dictation in Windows 10, press the Windows key plus H (Windows key-H). The Cortana system will open a small box and begin listening and then typing your words as you say them into the microphone.

Hope you look back and see this as a turning point in your life, your future sober self would thank you. 🧘‍♂️

Mine did something similar at 113,000. The issue is that the radiator doubles as a trans cooler, and the metal spring clamp that holds the trans line onto the bottom of the radiator rusts off so when there’s pressure in the lines, like up a hill, the hose can get shot off. After the hose comes off, attempting to rev it or drive it can cause permanent damage. The best course of action is to pull over immediately, put the hose back on, refill the ATF, and drive home as gently as possible, or just get towed. When refilling, keep in mind that the fluid must be checked when it’s warm, also keep in mind that imported vehicles have their own transmission fluid. I believe it’s thinner than for domestic vehicles. If you kept trying to drive after the hose came off, you likely destroyed the clutches in your transmission, and it’s probably shot. At that point, you need a rebuild. Here’s what you should do now: drain the ATF and remove the trans pan. Pay attention for any metal shavings or other residue or parts, these can indicate a serious, non-repairable problem. Replace the pan and ATF filter if everything looks okay, then refill the trans. It takes a lot of fluid, I believe 11 quarts. Start with a gallon and run the truck for no more than 30 seconds just to get the fluid moving. Slowly add more and more, until you reach the proper level. Run the vehicle and let it warm up, remember: you must check ATF level when the parts are warm, so you’ll probably need to add more. If your transmission is still useable, this should get you back on the road.
For the rest of you: shame on you. This person needs help, their pride and joy has been taken off the road, and all you can do is make fun of their grammar? Fellow Titan drivers will come here in the future with similar problems, trying to find a solution, and these records might help them too. If you’re not going to offer solid advice, just keep your comments to yourself.

Come on man, as Joe would say. Smoke weed everyday 420 is his forum name, he provided an incoherent run on babble post. Shame on you for your lecture. He should have given more thought to his forum name if he wanted serious replies only. Give me a break, wokeness has struck again.
