4r100 Shutters going into OD

I just bought the truck, shifted fine when not quite up to operating temp. I was driving for a few days a noticed a shutter when going into OD. If I have my trailer (18' equipment trailer, normally loaded with large container trees and or a skid steer) it realy shutters! Any input? Filter change or is it time for the trans shop?

Will do, that was my first thought thanks. I'm taking the Bully Dog OFF for good.

You'll be looking at tranny work sooner rather than later.

I called my "transmission guy" and he is ordering parts so regardless of what it is we can upgrade for HEAVY towing.

If you can swing it, a BTS is well worth it, so is John Wood's stuff.

I dug deep to see if I could and all I found was a couple grand and some lint, so a BTS is a pipe dream at the moment. I'm selling an enclosed 24' I don't need anymore so I may find a way..

My trans guy, been using him for 13 years for anything from my race car to daily drivers called me and said the problem is the accumulator valve and a complete fluid change should fix any and all issues.

Well that's good news.

If you can, I'd slap a valve body in there, like this:

I actually have it on my list of "to do's" I just brought it to my buddies shop to make sure I wasn't gonna kill it. I would order an aftermarket valve body but I would have to overnight it because I cannot afford to have the truck down for more than a day or so. I know if I brought it to Zoomy (my trans guy) even if it needed a rebuild it would be ready by tomorrow. He is one of the best transmission mechanics I have ever used and he is more than reasonable on his prices. I was actually looking at JWA last night and wished I would have ordered one Friday.
