hey all, my tranny has been acting real funny, at first i thought it was in limp mode, but the od light isnt flashing. 1st to 2nd its shifting way late, around 3200. every other gear it shifts when it should but its a little rough.

it started when i crossed a little water hole. i already changed out the tranny fluid.


any thoughts?

did you replace the filter as well? was the filter seated properly when you dropped the tranny pan?

Try cleaning out the bulkhead connector on the passenger side. Those like to hold dirt & water.

have you recalibrated your PSOM since installing the 35" tires?

i would double check. having that not setup right will cause the tranny to not shift properly and will eventually cause wear on the tranny.

  • If it was working fine before the water crossing, it's probably NOT the PSOM, unless he got water up to his instrument panel. Also, his speedometer would be acting wonky.
  • The wrong PSOM multiplier won't cause this problem, not all of a sudden. At most it would cause a slight change in shift-point speed. Read this thread.

Sounds like you need to clean the tranny harnesses just like sig said.

I have had plenty of experience in that department. :doh0715:
