I know this isnt the right Forumn but im having engine AND tranny probs and didnt feel like posting it twice
Heres the deal...went out last night to start the truck up and it cranks up fine as im leaving the driveway the engine starts missing out terribly, im talkin to the point where it sounds like its gonna die then all of a sudden it will rev up to about 1500rmps then choke back out.
2nd problem...Once the engine started doing this my transmission basically stops working, 1700-2000 rpms for the truck to budge an inch. When it would move it had horrible slipping issues.
Im pointing my finger at the TC and heres way (may be completley wrong) a few years back the TC went out and it caused the engine to do the same exact thing..miss really bad...once the TC was put in the engine ran fine
The local mechanic that did the work said there is some sort of module that causes the truck not to run when the TC is shot. I dont know how well this statement holds up so im coming to the experts
Is my transmissin dead and motor having problems or is it what i stated above?
Thanks for any replies
