Symptoms of a failing Torque converter????
I've had a couple problems with my truck, i bought it used about 3 months ago, and i've been tracking down gremlins ever since...
I've had trouble with towing power, at first, the truck was kinda sluggish and i discovered the EBVP was closed and causing problems, after fixing this, the truck ran much better unloaded and i thought i had fixed the problems...
After i thought i had it all straightened up, i hooked to a mini excavator and the truck was a dog...(1.5 mile level straight strech to reach 50mph)
i had a chip on order and installed it, and again unloaded the truck hauls???
i have no codes, no flashing OD OFF light, i had a mechanic ride with me with a code scanner and no abnormal sensor readings
only problems i am experiencing is a shudder. Mostly happens when trying to accelerate up a steep hill when already in OD, stops if truck kicks down.
the mechanic suggested the torque converter might be bad, but said he had no evidence to support it with the scanner...
Anyone else had a torque converter cause a problem like this?
