Angry Please help, tranny issue

I took my truck in for it's yearly DOT certification and while it was there I had them change the transmission fluid. A few days later it's whining like your riding in a bus when speeding up, cruising and slowing down. It's shifting fine and not slipping. I went over and asked and they told me they only put in Mercon not Mercon SP. How can I get all the fluid out and worse is it too late? If it's not too late I'll pick up how ever many gallons of SP and just keep flushing it if the experts think it'll work.

Just drain all you can fill it up drive for.like 30 min and the drain and.fill up again. If your extreamly worried about it take it in.and have it flushed.

Drain and refill, a flush will not work unless it is a heated system, probably not available at most places.

Does the Mercon and Mercon SP mix well or will there be some sort of reaction?

Ron, the entire system takes approximately 18 litres of Mercon SP from Coolers, lines to transmission. If you get more than 18 litres, that will more than cover the amount you need. It wouldn't hurt to change both filters too. Didn't you just ask about how to remove the external filter not too long ago?

I think if servicer put in wrong stuff they should do it right or pay your expense's to do it right.

They f'd it up make it right & a small warrantte so if you have problems down the road they will fix it.

I'm not sure if they mix well or not, but I would assume you are ok, no damage, but I would change the fluid and filters.

Mike funny thing is yes I was going to do it but couldn't get the filter cover off because it was so tight. You told me to try a bar behind it then I got all tied up with my granddaughters hockey tryouts and decided what the hell gotta get the DOT anyways might as well let them do the filter and fluid change. Paid the DOT and paid the guy cash for the tranny fluid change and the rest is history, my loss. It even gets worse lol, he also told me he could'nt get the filter housing cover off and didn't change the filter either. This is the exact reason I don't trust anybody to work on my vehicles and do all myself. Problem is I'm not licensed and can't write up the DOT certificate. Next time we get together mum's the word, I don't need the Wardens ragging as well..... This time I will get the damb cover off that external filter for sure now. I'll pick everything up Monday and get at it.

Your so right.....Wish I could but I paid cash not a leg to stand on gambled and lost, learned a big one. Friend of a friend and don't know if it's worth the hassle between friends but for sure it'll be common knowledge in my circle. Buddies gonna feel the effects one way or another. Takes a good while to get a good reputation and only one bad job or two to spoil it

On the external filter, hit it with a air ratchet or air gun. It just just a bump with it for a second or so, and I will com right off. Be careful using a large ratchet or breaker bar you will bend the transmission lines.
