I Have Problems

I dont know what is happening but up til last week my truck ran great. I had work done on my downpipe due to an mistake made when it was originally put on. After I had the work done all the problems started coming. I think my tranny is about to go. When i put it in reverse and give it a little gas the gears dont engage all the way and makes a terrible grinding noise. I drove to Mississippi this weekend and on the way back I could feel and hear the gears slipping while cruising on the highway. When i got back i opened up the hood and there is coolant everywhere. I dont know what to do. Ive done the mods listed in my sig to try and make this truck as reliable as possible and things like this happen. It only has 56k miles on it.

Uh-oh. Check and make sure your coolant bottle is not overfilled (should be below the MIN line.).

When was the last time your trans fluid was changed?

Not very long ago. It ran fine and I decided to put a new tune on it. When i re-tuned it the reverse started acting up and so i put the old tune on it and it still kept doing it. Then I returned it to stock and same thing. Im pretty sure the coolant was filled at the min line as well.

Try tuning back to stock, and running it, and see if the problem still persists.

Do you have the updated degas cap as well?

I tried the re-tuning thing. What is the updated degas cap? Ive gone through several of them the last one i got was about a year ago.
