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
