Please tell me I'm wrong!
Alright, so I think I've ignored my tranny long enough, er, well, it's forcing me not to ignore it anymore.
What are the symptoms of a TC lettin go?
What are the symptoms of the tranny lettin go?
Personally, I'd say it's the tranny, but after I rev it up high enough, she takes off like a bat outta hell, squeelin tires and all. So I think it might be the TC. But it also could be the forward clutches letting go and slipping real bad.
Here's what she's doin to me today. When I first left the house, I noticed it hesitated to go into drive. Didn't think anything of it, went to my buddies, (No dead stops in between) and everything was fine (I never floored it or anything). Backed down his yard, and when I went to pull away, I had to basically floor the throttle to get er moving (reverse acted fine, forward didn't), but once she got goin, she moved just fine. From the next dead stop I had to make, same thing. So I pulled over, and checked the t-oil, and it is at normal levels, although It's not as red as i thought it should have been. (I'm getting a bad feeling about this) and now when I got to where I was goin. the OD light is flashing (I know this says tranny, but I'm hoping it's just a TC, I don't have the 3k to put out right now)
Anybody have any ideas? I still have to drive home from here, and am also worried about doing some more damage to her.
Also, what is this tranny in? (4R100, right?) 250's 350's ect? the 7.3's the only one's that use this tranny?
Thanks for any help in advance.
