Trans relearn/revs then slams into gear AFTER SPARTAN INSTALL

I got these quick reference tranny relearns from Jeff Dodd. I am in no way claiming to be the one that thought this up, but it has worked for me and alot of other people on the forum. I figured I'd post this to make it easy and perhaps a sticky for easy reference.

As far as the tranny revving then slamming into gear, Jeff also has posted to add 1/2 quart of tranny fluid, but before you do, crawl under and make sure no tranny leaks.

STOCK TCM
1. From a stop, accelerate the vehicle to 60 mph at approximately 1/2 throttle. DO THIS three times.

2. From a stop, accelerate the vehicle to 60 mph at wide open throttle. DO THIS three times.

SPARTAN TCM
1. From a stop, accelerate the vehicle to 55-60 mph at approximately 1/4 throttle. DO THIS TWICE.
2. From a stop, accelerate the vehicle to 65-70 mph at approximately 1/2 throttle. DO THIS TWICE.
3. From a stop, accelerate the vehicle to 70 mph at approximately 3/4 throttle. DO THIS TWICE.
4. From a 40 mph roll, press the accelerator to the floorboard quickly (forcing the truck to downshift) and accelerate to around 75 mph.
5. From a stop, acclerate to 75 mph at wide open throttle (press the accelator to the floor immediately). DO THIS 2-3 TIMES.

Thanks for the help Jeff, just trying to make it easier for everyone to find.

Great post! This should be made a sticky in my opinion.....and think many others would agree.

I assume the relearn for a H&S is the same as the spartan correct?

I can't answer that, I have only ran a spartan, but I honestly can't see why it wouldn't work. I posted this because there is alot of guys asking what tranny relearn is, and I figured this would help.

Once your download is complete your transmission will be ready to re-learn. It is recommended to perform the re-learn process while in the "HOT" setting on the Black Maxx Tuner.

During this transmission re-learn process you may experience "harsh" shifting, "missed" shifts, or erratic results. Continue the process, this is normal.

Drive for a series of three runs:

1. 0-60MPH @ 1/4 throttle position, then slow down and come to a stop

2. 0-60MPH @ 1/2 throttle position, then slow down and come to a stop

3. 0-80MPH @ wide open throttle, then slow down and come to a stop

this relearn, is it only if you have a tuner. If you don't have a tuner and want to get rid of the bad shifts, can you do the same??
