stalling issue- a new one for ya

Any of you who have been around a while are probly thinking 'Geesh, this guy is still pestering us about his stalling truck...'

I'm proud to report that a past stalling issue seems to be solved!!!

I've had random stalling issues that had the symtoms of CPS going bad... replaced a few of them, still stalling randomly.

Replaced alternators... both of them. Mine has dual alt's, (amb. prep. package) and I had replaced both of them about 2 years ago... lifetime parts, so swap was simple, cost nothing, buddies garage is right behind the parts store, an hour later, 2 new alt's, and on the road again, on New Years Eve to boot.

Not one eppisode of stalling like it had before, since the change out's.

So, another minor issue to ask about. A stalling issue, but diffrent. Only under very specific circumstances does this happen.

I live at the top of a 1 mile long hill, that I daily come down with the truck geared down, sometimes even in low range. I tend to use low range, and let the trans get into 3rd or OD, as I've been under the impression that the trans will like it better to be in a higher gear, with the torq converter locked, than in high range in 1st gear, if using it to hold back the truck with compression breaking.

What happens is as I come to a stop at the bottom of the hill, it will stall. Sometimes does this even if I'm in high range/1st, but mostly when coming to a stop in low range, after coming down the hill. Flat ground, parking lot, moving trailers at the farm, never a stall stoping.

I don't think it's the T/C staying locked, as the RPMs seem to rise slightly, then it's like you popped the clutch on a man trans. Starts right up, and away we go.

Over all a minor issue, ease up to a stop SLOWLY and won't do it...

Just thought I'd see what the smart people had to say...

Hope you enjoyed reading my Friday morning book.... I'll insert a title page and chaper headings later.
