BIG LEARNING EXPERIENCE FOR ME!!
Well it starts off like this,one day trans started acting up after i rebuilt it with what i thought was stock tune. i called Suncoast and let me tell you these guys customer service is off the charts man they are awesome. Anyway i told them the truck is hanging in gear coming to a stop and when it shifts into 4 or 5th depending on temps it neutrals and bangs into gear. Wow i have to take trans out again i say with another call to suncoast know this is 3rd time out to find nothing. i replaced harness to trans and reinstall just to find it does same thing again.By this time im ready to drive truck into a tree!!! So i call suncaost again and the old guy says to me does this truck have stock tune and i said yes!! He said did i program it back to stock with my sct tuner i said yes!! LONG PAUSE!!!! He tells me this is the issue!!!??? Then he tells me to use my IDS to program truck back to stock and do a drive cycle!!! BINGO FIXED the sct somehow currupted my stock file and caused all of this!! so both of my tuners are at SCT AS WE SPEAK!! MAN IM PISSED!!! BUT I WOULDNT USE ANY OTHER PROGRAMMER So lesson learned pay attention when you put truck back to stock and make sure problems didnt start after you returned it to stock! If it can happen to me it can happen to anyone!!
