*FIXED* Transmission problems after rebuild
My truck would not stay in overdrive and was getting worse and worse so I had it rebuilt. The rebuilder said he found broken springs in the OD section and worn out bands and clutchs through out. He told me though that the TQ was fine and did not need replaced. So he fixed everything and put the tranny back in and added an external cooler and bypassed the factory cooler.
The truck does run better but now I have some unusual symptoms that after much reading im convinced is a TQ problem. here is a list of the problems
*increased fuel consumption
*sporadic inability to keep speed it bleeds off speed and requires me to press the gas down until it kicks down a gear. If I dont it will just keep getting slower and slower and the engine will start to chug like its in to high of a gear until I give it enough throttle to cause the transmission to kick down.
*When first starting after sitting over night take the transmission a few moments to get up enough pressure to move the truck.
*poor acceleration, the engine roars and the RPMS go way up but its like the truck is not picking up much speed for how much power until it gets up till about 30-35 then its starts picking up speed faster.
I really think the fins are either worn or deformed and or the stator is either locked in both ways or free wheeling.
im kinda pissed cause I wanted to replace the TQ and he talked me out of it.
