97 powerstroke e4od problems
I hooked up to my trailer a few weeks ago and after driving out of town about 30 miles my OD light started blinking. I decided it was best not to push the truck and headed home. I used auto engenuity and found it was a torque converter slip. With 145k it is probably a tranny on its way out.
I'm looking for options. I'm in the Phoenix area and would like to find someone reliable to rebuild this teanny with minor upgrades. I tow a toyhauler and am lifted on 37s. I'm currently stock but will be adding a tuner, e fuel and injectors over the next year. Nothing crazy HP wise maybe 350 at most or so. I want a tranny that can handle that while pulling.
I know some people will install more clutch bands etc., a Billet torque converter, valve body and other stuff. I don't feel ill need billet input or output shafts.
Anyone know a good builder in the Phoenix valley? I've checked with John woods and I'm not looking to spend a starting price of 4k. I'm sure there are great people very familiar with these trannies who know what needs to be done.
Thanks and look forward to hearing what everyone had to say.
