Trans Again.......!

Well, I am at 8,000 miles and I need to go back in for repairs to my trans!

I have intermittantly lost 1st gear, and second will slip and drop in SOOOOO hard!

I have a complete Suncoast rebuilt trans in the truck now with ~3100 miles on the clock, and ZERO racing since the rebuild!

Gettin cranky!

Mike

This maybe a shot in the dark, but maybe because you hadn't gotten on it, hammered, or whatever you want to call it, is the reason its acting up one you

That is kind of weird..... I hammered the piss out of it last go around when it was acting up, and the truck shifted much better the next few weeks!?

I am also wondering if it is a software incompatibility with the upgraded shift kit that was installed with the trans.....?

No I don't think so, but you never know. Usually when you have a tranny built, parts like clutches and output shafts are just upgraded to better ones so they can take the abuse, certain hole are drill in the valve body and stiffer springs are used for quicker firmer shifts........It might not hurt to drive it like you stole for the next couple days and see what happens with the tranny, I mean if its broken its going to have to come out anyway right?

That's what's amazing. It's still rockin and it's been that hot and even hotter for hours at a time. Fluid still looks good and only thing that happened was OD stopped working for about 10 minutes. I know thats a good temp because I have a tuner I use for live data and it's says the same temp.
