Transmission Question?

How you doing guys? Yesterday i was on my way home with a 11ft viking power angle plow, i did not have a trailer so i had the guy place it in the back of my truck. However i under estimated the weight of the plow. She was squating a little bit. However on my way back to massachusetts i drove slow on the highway so no problems would occur. But i noticed one thing going up the hills on 295 my tranny was jumping in and out gear like it couldnt figure out what gear it wanted. The tranny was rebuilt 30,000 miles ago , does this reveal that there something could be wrong with the tranny or is this normal considering the weight i had in the bed of the truck? In my truck i just have a 4" mbrp turbo back exhaust , cold air intake, and the edge ez chip. Any suggestions would be a great help thanks sorry for the long post.

Were you pulling the hills in overdrive? Do you have a trans temp gauge? I've heard (though have had no personal experience with them) that the Edge chips can be very problematic with automatics. (from many people) How's the fluid look and smell? Is it full?

The fluid is a very pink color and looks extremely clean, i dont have a tranny temp gauge. I have the edge on the second setting. I wasnt pulling a trailer it was in the back of the bed, and i was driving with the overdrive on. It just seemed like the tranny couldnt figure out what gear it wanted to stay in then on pretty level highway it was fine and no problems. I hope its not burnt out i dont have another 1500 to have it rebuilt

this plow was huge , i went and picked it up for my dads tri-axle dump truck, i underestimated the weight of it, the guy used an 863 bobcat to lift and the bobcat almost tipped over cause the weight. it was 11ft viking power angle plow. i dont know if it was because the amount of weight and the grades i was going up or what

When the trans starts "hunting" like that it's best to shift out of overdrive. I'll leave it in on level surfaces but when hauling my tractor or loaded horse trailer up a grade and it starts doing that, out of overdrive it comes.

Hard to say for sure but if the fluid isn't brown and doesn't smell burnt, and if it behaves normally empty, you are probably ok. Personally tho', I strongly encourage you to lose the Edge, get some gauges, exhaust, and then one of the popular custom tunes out there. But before that, find and fix
the 'stutter'. My chip's nearly 9 years old. If custom tuning existed then, nobody knew about them, or I'd have one. The BD X-Power is great (not the same as Bully Dog) but custom is definitely the way to go, and will help save your trans. Oh, as much as I tow, at 30k miles I'd be thinking about changing the trans fluid. You'd be able to see if there are any shreds in the pan.
