Well they were able to duplicate the problem, now it's into the tranny to figure it out. What the tech told me, was it's quirky shifting to 2 and 3rd, but then sometimes it wants to shift into 4th then back into 3rd or 2nd really quick. Almost like it can't make up it's mind. He said shifting into 4th around 25mph is odd also. He said he was able to get it to repeat itself a couple of times. I was referred to him buy my regular mechanic, by regular I mean the guy who works on all of my cars and we go off-roading together on a regular basis, and he know's his sh*t. So I have all the faith there, just looking for some thoughts on what the tranny guy has said.
He said it could be something as simple as bad seals. He said when it's cold they're not sealed correctly which is could be causing the problem. He said when it gets warm they seal and it runs fine. Does that sound right. One of the techs already drained some fluid and said he didn't see any shavings in it or small chunks of metal.
I'm hoping I caught this in time before it did any real damage.
