PO had a tuner on truck, left tunes on it?

He had the TS 6pos chip and he used the truck for towing mainly.

We'll the tranny has always acted funny and I'm wondering if he could have left a tune on it before he took it off?

Anyway I can fix that?

No, the TS chip doesn't upload anything onto the PCM. WHen you remove the chip it'll leave whatever tune was on the PCM. This doesn't mean that there isn't a SUperchip or SCT tune stuck on it from another owner though...

Edit: Conversely, If you get your own TS chip whatever tunes you get will overwrite the PCM.

You keep making all these posts that make you sound worried about your trans, yet you say you have a BTS. Are you 100% sure it has a real BTS in there?

It's not a BTS, my TC looks like it's machined out of SS and isn't purple. Plus he sent the truck to a shop to do it and doubt he sent it to AZ for a tranny rebuild..

I just haven't changed my sig yet.

I am worried about the trans, mainly cus I have no idea what it is or what's in it..

The main thing is it takes a few seconds for reverse and drive to engage
The other is from around 30mph to 45mph it shifts into a higher gear so the RPMS are around 1300-1600, it down shifts when I give it fuel or speed up...I just never had a tranny do those things...

Plus my buddy's chipped 5.9 spanked me last night, so I was wondering if it could have a fuel economy program left on it or something..

What you are describing is all normal Ford shift patterns for a 4EOD/4R100 except drive should engage pretty much right away. BTW, BTS transmissions do not come with tunes etc. All tuning is done through the PCM.

Oh good.
Drive dose engage a lot faster then reverse.
So I guess it's good then!

Well, apart from another fuel leak!
