2002 7.3 slipping issue

When I'm under moderate to hard acceleration the tranny seems to slip a little in 1st and 2nd. Bought the truck with 72k, now at 96k. Trans fluid and filter are coming this weekend. Does it sound like maybe the change will help or does it sound like a rebuild? When towing it seems to not slip at all.

Sounds like your tc is not locked, as is will not lock until over 35 atleast.
When the tc locks it feels like a gear shift, but no "slipping" it lugs the motor as it has full mechanical connection versus the fluid/hydraulic connection prior to lock. If you have "slipping" or no lock up in the higher gears your tc is going and once the truck realizes it you will get a flashing od light and stored code related to tc clutches.

I'm taking it to the dealership in the morning. I'll let the warranty handle it. I also have a small brake fluid leak at the master cylinder at the fire wall inside. I'll keep everyone posted as to the diagnosis.

Looks like the torque converter for the trans. New hubs as well which is odd because they are only 9 months old. Also new master cylinder. Gotta love warranties.
