Trans starting to slip

Hey guys

Here lately my trans has started to slip going into 3rd gear. It will only start doing it when the trans temp gets above 140+. I installed the solenoid from gogo diesel. Every since I installed this I noticed this problem. I'm thinking about taking the solenoid out and seeing if that was the problem. What are your guys thoughts? Is it to far gone or should I try it? Thanks for any help Brad

Have you tried to increase your shift pressure on the 2-3 shift with your sct?

I've decided against the solenoid, as I've heard of some major trans issues after installing the solenoid.

I have also decided against the solenoid just because of the mixed reviews. Subscribed!

Im happy with my solenoid. Only put 400 miles or so on so far. But it shifts good with my new xtreme street tune for the gogo solenoid. I could tell the difference yesterday while cruising @ 65 then went WOT and it moved real good. better than old tune/old solenoid.

People that are having issues with it most likely had the issue before the solenoid. The solenoid just exposed it, imo. I had questions and concerns about it as well so I contacted doug and he assured me his solenoid works. So far it has, for me.
