tranny acting up

My tannie is shifting very unconsistently and would shift in and out of o/d like it couldnt make its mind up??? and my o/d light is flashing on and off . i just had my transmission rebiult about 4 months ago with a trannie cooler and it just started acting up after i took an 11 hour drive. I was thinking it was a bad speed sensor what do you guys think ??? please help

I suggest you go back to the shop that rebuilt your trans. That is if you have a warranty with the rebuild.

Either way you will have to have codes pulled that pertain to the transmission. Which a normal code reader will not pull.

I had it scanned at a transmission shop and the only code they pulled was internal control ram error I think is what it was

whoever rebuilt the tranny is who you need to talk to. 4 months? you're not exactly pushing high power, and it lasted less than a stock reman

I know im a little late on this one but the trans coolers suck on these you have to either go all aftermarket or remove the lines from the radiator and blow em out with an air hose and some choke carb cleaner. I talked to brian from BTS and it worked great

I am having a similar problem with mine but mine only does that after severely overheating on long drives. What are your temps?

Well, I have 2 coolers and a mag hytec pan also. My trannie is barely 2 months old and it got over 260 deg within 1-1/2 hrs of highway driving a couple nights ago with no load and about 85 deg ambient temp. So I think you can see it's definitely possible.
