hey guys so i got a big, semi big, small (not to sure how severe) problem on my hands. Over the last 10,000 kms or so i have noticed that my truck is starting to sort of slip when shifting from 3rd to 4th, and maybe a little bit on other gears a bit but not as noticeable. WHAT i mean by slip is when it shifts, it will either hold the gear extra long and then hammer into 4th, or it will shift rpms will raise for a second then grab 4th. Truck has 140,000 kms (85,000 miles) and i like to drive it hard, very hard.
How big of a deal is this? like can i limp it or should i address it immediately?
Is there a cheap fix for this or no?
Im thinking about just buying a used tranny with lower kms for $800 and using that until i eventually get a built tranny. Used tranny will come with transfer case as well. but if i go this route ill need a little help as in DIY write up, im good with wrenching but some pictures and directions to follow would be helpful.
Been reading a lot about the Go-Go soleniod, would this help at all or not really.
Also when i retune my truck and it has to relearn the problem is way way more evident.
Also Also, truck sort of feels like it is shuttering a bit in fourth, might be tranny, might be a ujiont or rear diff i dont know but only really evident in fourth. might just me be over reacting when i feel anything while driving but seems like its there.
thanks for any help i have seen lots of posts about this but none have really solved anything. hopefully we can get these issues cleared up for everyone in one location
