TRANNY PRESSURE

I have tried to contact Diesel Site about this 2 times already no response so I will ask you guys. Ok so I put on one of DIesel sites tranny bypass filter setups and it came with a pressure guage on it so I installed everything started the truck up drove around the block and checked for leaks and the pressure guage on it was in the red sayin to service the filter so since it was new I thought it might be the one in the pan so did an oil change started it up again and drove same thing happned when I checked it. So what could be the cause of it? fluid seems like it was goin through the cooler lines. And the filter housing is goin the right direction.

Filters on / in the cooler line cause a restriction in the line. this builds or raises the cooler line pressure. This pressure backs up into the torque converter and causes it to drag, not completly release. The 5r110w uses a filter with a bypass in it so the problem is not there.

Hmm well why in the heck would Diesel Site sell somethin like that for. It's kinda getting hard to find a good diesel performance company that sells stuff thats not gonna screw up your truck kinda pisses me off the filter setup wasn't cheap.

Youre truck. Youre call. Just change youre fluidand filter in the pan every 25,000 or 33,000,( makes it easy to remember and keeps it on the 100,000 routine).
