Transmission Problem.

Hi There,

Big fan of this site. About 2 weeks ago I was pushing through some water on the hunt lease and overheated transmission. I dumped approx. 7 quarts of tranny oil which appeared to be coming from torque converter area. I let cool and applied enough oil to get back home. Transmission was working fine. I flushed transmission with new oil and filters. Now 1 week later my second gear is slipping. My question is if there is if anyone knows of a good transmission company in the apopka, fl. area, and what do I need to do as far as upgrades to torque converter etc. I am running 37s with lift. Thanks

Sean

Arkansas is quite a ways from the east coast.

I would suggest re-gearing the axles to save your next transmission, even though there just 37s they still put a strain on your tranny

I will def. keep that in mind. But now I'm real confused. I drove it this morning and it was not slipping. Got home from work and added Approx. 1 1/2 quarts of tranny oil. Do you think it could have been slipping due to that?

Only 1 1/2 low I sure wouldn't think so, but... I suppose it could.

As stated above at least 4:10's on 37's.
