Hey guys, more transmission questions so here goes my little story.
Stock 4r100 seems to be in great shape, stock TC, etc.... I always pay close attention to the fluid & change before it ever gets bad or have many miles on it. the truck does the occasional 'bog down in reverse' scenario but seems fine otherwise. over the last 50k to 70k of miles, it feels like the power is there from the engine, but never gets to the wheels. I watch the trans fluid temp always, which never gets over 180 (towing anything heavy) and am very mindful of how I treat the entire truck. After reading alot of what you all have said/experienced as well as talking to several trusted mechanics i know, it feels like to me, that the TC is weak. So, would I spend the money to get a good TC and replace just that or run it till I get the entire transmission rebuilt w/ new TC? I just feel like the tranny has life left in it and don't want to tear into it prematurely. Please let me know what y'all think and or have experienced.
