Issues after GOGO install

I put in GOGO Direct solenoid in about a week ago.. Drove it about 100 miles since then.. everthing seemed great.. Yesterday when i had it idleing (15 min)after about a 20 mi drive i could here a little ticking noise from the trans area.. Got in to drive it and had not one single gear did anything.. D,R,1,2,or 3.. So i shut it off for about 30 sec and restarted it and trans worked fine the 20 mi drive home.. Pulled the pan again today and found alot of filings for only 100 miles of driving and the fluid was blackish...

Whats everbodys guess of whats goin on??

Tranny on its way out??

Trans never got above 165*F and has never once had an issue till now

Truck has 106k on it and been running tunes from TSD

Dang, this is the first I've heard of this. Free bump for you. I was thinking about ordering the GoGo Diesel Direct Clutch Solenoid soon myself.

Just read your post on another tranny thread, sorry to hear that it eventually blew out. Man that sucks. Do you think the GoGo Diesel solenoid had anything to do with it at all? You mentioned something about "changing the fluid" maybe being the culprit. What do you mean?

Yes i put the solonoid in the right spot........ After much research it seems there has been a few failures with guys putting in the GOGO... Now if that is the reason the trans went out IDK... It might also have been from the flush where maybe some debris could of got stirred up into other solonoids and caused them to stick open/closed... I have read posts that suggest either way could of done it.. take it for what its worth...

Looks like im gonna get TWISTED now though... Calling Twisted diesel tommorrow to place an order for there stage 2 trans with triple disk converter and billit input shaft..

Sure am glad i only have 5 payments left on the truck

Damn, Jeff. Sorry to hear about it, bud. It seems like as soon as you fix one problem, you end up with another. Let me know how you like that tranny. With mine at 135k miles, I'm sure that it's just a matter of time.

the gogo solenoid is a replacement that offers more fluid volume to the direct drive clutches... it has larger orfices for more fluid which should inturn offer a little pressure increase.

It won't increase the pressure, but the larger ports will let the pressure get there quicker which will reduce slipping on the direct clutch shift.

Figured Id jump in with a senario with the GoGo DD solenoid. I cant say for sure its due to the solenoid as numerous possiblities come into play here. I originally got the 3-5 shift flare shortly after custom tuning in Jan of this year. Not long after the GoGo solenoid, fresh fluid and filters I got a heavy 3-5 shift slip and slam into gear. Immediately reverted back to stock and experienced the same thing. I was doing the trans force learn procedure evertime I would go from stock to custom tune. Truck sat for 2 weeks as I thought the trans was toast. I honeslty could not stand the much firmer 3-5 shift over all other gear shifts from the GoGo solenoid. Just to end this, I just yesterday did the batt cables pull, let sit for a few hrs, then did the trans force relearn and the truck is driving fairly good. Slight 3-5 flare here and there but no major slips or bangs yet in the last 1.5 days....Im in the process for planning a trans rebuild/replacement....
