Exclamation Tranny Question

Just got a fresh rebuild about two weeks ago. Since then I have not been lead footing it, I have already been through two transmissions, trying to give this one a break. A couple of days ago noticed its hesitant taking off from a stop, it kind of grinds a little then kicks into 1st. This morning it was fluctuating from 1st to 2nd, 1st to 2nd. Real wierd, like 1st couldnt hold gear. Anyone have an Idea??

Pretty sure its a torque converter problem. On the way back from U of I this morning and my O/D light started flashing and I pulled a TCC malfunction code. Fluid smells fine and looks good, its just shifting hard and sometimes slips. Could it just be electrical??

Yea its going back Weds. Itll be the third time I've taken it back for problems. first time was the rebulid, second was slippage from not cleaning it out good enough, and now this problem. And while it was there the second time they left it outside for a week and my fuel system was gelled to hell, took 3 days to get it running rite again. I dont know whether to be pissed at the shop or my truck for being cursed.

It's standard to clean them out and inspect them. If there is any sign of damage, it's trash.

I didn't see Scuffy in the thread earlier. There is a 99% chance one of us will be correct.
