Has it always done this or just started?

Could be a bad connection on the switch or the chip its self.

Pull it and reinstall it and see what happens.

You need to get youre truck on a scanner and do some test.
Did you bump or pull the wire at all did you get any water in the PCM. Pull the PCM and check it fo any water damage some trucks will leak. Is there notacible diferance switching from tune to tune.

A chip will make a problem with the truck more noticable than it will be in stock form. There realy isnr much to go wrong on a chip unless it gets shorted out or pulled while the key is on.

talk to tony after you try what was said above... might need to put a pressure gauge on the trans to see what the line pressures are... the truck may have a shift kit or different VB in it...

Is there any difference in the settings when you switch the positions or do they all feel/act the same?

I don't see how this would find out the problem or not.

My chip feels the same in every setting up till 1/2 throttle then there is more fuel. When you just switch through them you can tell at all.

But my question is do you have a high idle or something to try and see if the chip is really switching positions?

Since you dont have a TW you probably dont know. But there is a noticable differance between tunes.

I've been running it for a while now with no problems. the terminals are clean and clear. every setting runs exactly the same: low power, lots of smoke, shifting hard, gets hot real fast. I think it is over fueling to the max. i took it out and the truck is running fine with out any codes or issues. I do not have any mods on my tranny either. has anyone had this issue before? Have your ever seen something like this happening tony? thanks for your quick help by the way man i appreciate it a lot
