my truck missed 2nd gear tonite

so tonite while uhhhh, showing off i guess, in town, i floored the truck from a dead stop in 2wd roasted first for while till i got traction and the truck just revved out like crazy, nailed the rev limiter and didnt shift into 2nd till i let off.

my truck has 47k, prevoius owner was an old guy who i can gaurantee didnt beat on it, didnt plow snow and didnt have any mods. i tow a max of 4k daily with my sct on street tune from dj's

any thought or ideas?

i think once it hits a certain point you have to back down to make it shift again. I done this in other trucks and once you back out of it she'll drop a gear or 2. Gotta be something with the TQ and spinnin with no traction.

If you put it in 2nd, you're in 2nd the whole time. At least this is on the 4r100.

well if i launch with no boost in 2nd, will that hurt my accel? i dont think so because i have punched nailed it in third from a dead stop just to dump smoke for friends and it took off preety quick after a second or two.

i wasnt spinning at a dead stop it took off spinning.

what about 4wd launching in 2nd?

With the torqueshift they just have different gear ratio's from 1-5... the final gear is actually within one tenth of the 4r100's IIRC... so what I'm trying to get at is maybe your first gear is low... and your second gear is too...

I can hit it in second and it will take off slow for about 1-2 seconds but as soon as that turbo is lit you better be holding on! Feels like a slingshot.

I don't know what the gear ratio's are for each gear... but the AE that dave has will tell you... i've tracked them on my truck. You may even be able to find them.

Anyways... I hit 65mph in 2nd gear on my truck before I realized in a race that I had it in 2nd gear... it reved to almost 3800 rpm's... which would be equivalent to a 6.0 revving to 4800 rpm's.

you were probably in 2nd gear.. and just over revved it going to fast???

The 5R110 doesn't lock in second, it's third for them. I assume they did that because of gear ratio, but it's always been second in the past. AOD, E4OD, 4R100, 4R70, etc. have always been second gear for the "winter" traction mode.

This is cornfoozing.

Six to one, half a dozen of the other?

When I put the 4R100s in 2nd, it starts in 2nd. Selection D is 1-2-3-TC lockup-4 unless you turn overdrive off 1-2-3, TC lockup, but that is irrelevant information unless the 5R110 is the same way even with the gear I don't have.

Without really knowing and all things considered, your tires spun way from a dead stop and you revved out to the limiter, and it didn't shift until you let out a little bit?

Wouldn't that be normal from over revving? Like a "safety" thing? Not to shift when you hit the limiter?

I guess the other question why didn't it shift when it was supposed it, or why did it hit the limiter and not shift before? Well, maybe you just had too much spinning on everything?

Auto Engunity should tell us something good like Marty said!

Edit: corrected
