Well I took the truck to the shop today because its been sucking fuel--sure enough the injector in #8 isn't firing. Fine, needs replacement.
My mechanic then says the transmission is going bad. He discovered what notice every once in awhile (only since rebuild after my accident)......
on occasion when shifting into reverse, starting to back up the trans/motor lags and shutters a little, almost stalling as if it was a manual and I popped the clutch. It doesn't always happen, but like today with the mechanic slipping back and forth slowly between Drive and Rev it will eventually happen.
He said the valve body is messed up somehow, although he insists the whole trans is on the way out.
So what do you guys think? Is it just the valve body, or accumulator that I can replace? I read that the torque converter could have seen some damage and thrown crap don into the valve body,....should the TC be replaced? What would you suggest?
Any help would be appreciated. I am not going to do anything until the injector is replaced next week, I figure its best to be messing with the tranny with full power available.
