what are signs?

what are some signs that your trans is going? just change the fluid and it was Cristal clear . but now it seems not to know what gear to go to when coming to a stop sometimes it wont down shift and some times it flashes third. this is really making me mad because i don't drive it super hard and just dumped a load in the engine oh yeah it only has 62000 on it. and it was shifting fine before.

The problem may have existed before the fluid change and the new fluid exposed it. Mine had similar symptoms before failure. Sticking in 3rd or 5th at a stop sign, lug in that gear for 100ft then bang down a gear, slip banging into gear with a high rpm rev in between, delay in P, R, D then finally tow/haul went off and it wouldnt get passed 3rd gear. These are all symptoms, I wasted my time with solenoids just ended up with a sore neck and spending more on trans fluid. Dont forget a new trans cooler also if it comes to replacing it, I didnt do that and roasted another trans. Now its at brown's so it gets done right. Hope it straightens out for you, good luck.

Used 5r anywhere from 500-1k. Tousley has coolers for $280+shipping. Might be able to run some fresh fluid thru your current one, I personally preferred a bnib cooler for piece of mind. There was someone selling used trans coolers on psn, check there. 19quarts of fluid about $120 then maybe $500-700 in labor to swap them out or do it yourself. The 5r going in my truck I bought from a member on here. Check psn, psa and ebay. Oh ya new in pan filter and external about $50bux for both. Got mine from dieselfiltersonline but tousley has them for a similarly competitive price. You can keep it well under 2k if you do it yourself.
