Thoughts on this issue with my 06

I wasn't towing or hauling anything major. Just a normal drive. All of a sudden it started shifting harder than normal and a very bad 3/5 flair. So I pulled over and put my stock tune back on. Still the same traits. It even feels like its dragging sometimes when I am off the throttle at low speeds. So quick, hard shifting. And shift flair. Not the weird shifting doesn't happen WOT. It shifts great wot. I didn't do WOT for 3/4 because I didn't want a major fair to jack anything up.

So thoughts? Solenoid?

My first stop would be fluid and BOTH filters. It could be a sticky solenoid.

Sounds like you have a solenoid issue. It's applying 2 gears at once.

the first thing I would do is disconnect both battires for a while and do a trans relearn . some times these trans learn them selves in to a hole . if that don't work get a modded direct clutch solenoid and new filter and fluid .... go from there

Im going to do the batteries tonight....driving gasser today for work. What solenoids do you think this is? Are there part numbers, multiple, upgraded (so the fair goes away for good).

I will research but I know a lot of you have been into this before.

Thanks all!

The solenoids all look the same, but they have different locking faces to prevent stuffing the wrong solenoid in the hole.

If I'm not mistaken, the direct clutch solenoid (maybe direct drive clutch solenoid) is located in the center of the back of 3 solenoids. There are a total of 7 if you have never paid attentoin to the valve body. Breaking the plastic on the wire harness is supposed to be the biggest concern when removing solenoids. I would think that some 00 steel wool or some super fine wet dry would be enough to clean the chaft of the solenoid.

As long as you have the pan off, may as well do the pan filter and the frame rail filter.

Thanks. Is there a good place to get solenoids? And does it seem that this problem is really isolated down to the direct clutch solenoid?
