My tranny problems

I know i've talked a few times to a couple guys on here about the tranny issue im having with my new (95) flatbed. Here is a video of it. What do you guys think it is?



Sometimes it will bog down enough that it will kill the motor.

One local tranny shop said reverse clutches. Which would require a rebuild to the tune of about 1700.

Also in the video i said every RPM drop was the tranny, not exactly true, i do take my foot off the pedal and it returns to idle, that wasn't the trans, that was me. I'm kind of a moron when it comes i try to quickly explain stuff on camera.

i can hear the torque converter rattling , and that will cause the engine to bind down and almost shut off and can stall the engine , trans probably has wear , but you may be able to get by with converter and new seal and good service

I'm hoping to not have to do a rebuild, if it does need it, i might try it myself, if thats a job a guy with my mechanical ability can handle.

I'll have to listen tomorrow again for the TC rattle, i never noticed it. Of course im not a tech either. I doubt a gasser TC would work, which sucks cause i have one at the shop. I guess i'll look for one and do a fluid flush and see what happens.

It works just fine going forward, everything is normal, just in reverse. Is when it acts stupid.

Do you think a guys like me and nick could handle trans rebuild Scott?

Think Scotts got it Jake.

And I dunno if a guy should try to crack open a trans without somebody that really know's whats goin on standing there lookin over his shoulder.

Now, droppin the pan and puttin a new filter on it, and droppin the whole trans to replace the TC ain't a big deal at all. If y'all did injectors you can definately handle that.

Y'all might also look at whatever wires are messed with when you guys do lock up switches and make sure nothin is groundin out and lockin it up that way? I dunno if I'm off base there, but it wouldn't hurt to look.

Yeah ive done pan drops tons of times. Never pulled the entire thing out the right way, i've literally ripped them out of junkers before though. I do have a old gasser E4OD i can practice on before i do the real thing if thats what it comes down to.
