When it does it will it do it repeatably a few times?
Reason im asking, if it does or you know its coming, try putting it in neutral and see if it still dies. If not then it could very well be the tc staying engaged.
YES, even if the engine stalls, I start it up and it typically does it immediately again. It usually requires a shut down and wait prior to restart, before it goes away. The problem goes away when placed in N. Also does it in R, 2 and 1.
from what i know of thar system, the pcm doesnt sense the active state of the tcc solenoid. Just applies 12v when it should engage. If this is the case, then the pcm wont know if it actually releases and wont throw a code.
That makes sense. Do you think the wet connector I mentioned has anything to do with it?
I would just try the neutral thing if you can catch it. Also, if you do that and it doesnt stall that time, beware of putting back in gear!!! Might still be applied and could cause your truck to lunge forward.
I know. It has happened in traffic...BAD!
Thanks for the reply! I appreciate all the help/guidance I can get before I start throwing parts at it, or worse yet, a new tranny.
