can never go wrong with fresh fluid and filter and maybe a bigger cooler, what were you doing to your truck to make it go out in 64k??

Well to make a long story short I had Shell Rapid Lube do a tranny flush at about 63K and they put regular dex III in the truck and it killed it.

Are they paying for it because they put the wrong stuff in it?

mine has been acting a little weird lately and it makes me a little nervous. The other day I put it in reverse and went to go and it was like it was in neutral but when I looked down at the selector it was in Reverse and as soon as I looked at it it engaged roughly.
