Auto Trans get'n sassy with me!
Well I had my auto trans serviced last summer and all checked out fine, truck is stock so it shouldn't be pissing off the trans much. But just recently I was pulling away from a light and noticed just the slightest slip and catch while taking off in drive. I didn't think much of it being winter here in MN and lots of times that just some ice or slipping on the painted crosswalk lines. But I noticed it a couple more times over the next week or so when I knew it wasn't ice or snow. If I start off slow enough I can't feel it, but if I hit the pedal right away from a dead stop I notice the slip then catch and the rest of the gears are fine. If I put it in 1st manually there is no slip at all. I also tested it from a dead stop just putting it in gear and letting it idle. takes off really well like it should in first no delay. But if I put it in drive it delays a little and no jerky in gear right a way feel and slowly picks up speed. if I have it in 4x4 its even worse hardly moves at idle I suppose from the added drag.
I guess my question would be what would this be if when putting it in 1st it shifts great and in drive it slips just a little..well could a bunch I guess if I massed the gas from the start maybe..but needless to say I have not done that yet. I just start off in 1st right now till I figure it out. Just when I was going years with this thing never having one major problem..and that bastard tranny sneaks up on me even after being nice and not modding the truck at all.
your help would be much appreciated!
