Trans acting funny

Atleast once everytime I drive my truck the trans will have a flare going from 1-2 or 2-3. I can't remember which but I feel like its around bumps maybe. The truck revs up between shifts. Not sure if this is an issue or normal. I have updated my tuner twice and no changes so I doubt it's H&S tuning causing it. Trans was flushed at 30k. Now at 34k miles. No unusual shavings in the trans when flushed. No burnt fluid ...etc. is this normal?

Over the last two years my trans has done a few funky things too. Mine has had flares going from 3-4 in rare occasions. I have had missed shifts (When racing). My trans is stock, my truck is not...LOL. I know these trans are tough, but eventually it is going to let go.

mine only has 34k miles on it. flushed the trans at 30k like supposed to. just wondering. never noticed it until got my traction bars on so it could have always been going on. not sure.

those dang things never stop 'learning'... it adapts constantly.. mine acted a fool after i dropped a #8k trailer a few weeks ago i had been pulling for about 5 hours straight at variable speeds, but mostly at around 70mph... it took a good day or so for it to behave like i'm accustomed to..

have you been hauling/towing? or, have you been deep into the throttle heavily over the past few days?

actually i have been pretty easy on it lately haha. but its hooked to a utility trailer 90% of the time. every once in a while i get on it to stretch a little but not bad at all. i guess that makes sense it happening every once in a while that its just making adjustments guess i will stop worrying and post a new thread if it goes kabooom. just replaced our trans in our 04 f450. snow plowing and too much weight took wore it out. after seeing that bill i wanna keep mine healthy. I have a little less worry since its under warranty still but for the light towing and little bit i get on it i wouldnt think i'd have trans issues already. we will see though!
