trans starting to go?

ok so eversince i got the truck the TC has made a terrible rattling noise and had numerous mechanics say it need to be replaced asap but i couldnt afford it so i kept driving it, a couple weeks ago the od light flashed for a few secs and then went away.

its been shifting weird lately too

under little throttle it shifts hard through 1st 2nd and 3rd then wont go into 4th/od without letting out of the throttle completly

under WOT it shifts pretty good other than it going up to 2800-3000 rpms before shifting. but shifts are nice and solid but not to hard.

so today i towed a 2k lb trailer wich should be nothing for this truck. It would make a real hard vibration under acceleration when the TC was locked up and i could not get it to shift into 3rd, it was shifting real hard too, i checked the fluid and its now pinkish-brown it was nice and red a couple weeks ago

do trannies go this quick whats the deal i need this truck and seeing as its getting to be summertime its going to run hotter and possibly go out completely

It was my tc. I replaced it and then the trans went soon after that. Sooo...
Got a BTS and actually got done installing that two weeks ago. Much better than stock but the stock tc lockup strategy isn't great so I will be getting tunes and hopefully that fixes it completely

Yup! And for anyone else that's looking at getting a bts trans Cary was great to deal with and was easier and faster to communicate with than Brian himself.
