cooler line,tranny failure,
my problem: A transmission cooler line broke,dumping atf all over the highway.... had it replaced...drove my truck for a few weeks...diablo tuner says my tranny is slipping.. now it wont shift to 3rd. It just revs and doesn't shift. I need to replace it for sure.
Is replacing a transmission just a matter of unbolting the old one and bolting on the new one?
I would like to attempt this myself because 1. I just want the experience. 2. tired of paying other people to fix my truck only to have if break again.
2000, 5.3, long bed, tow/haul button, auto
Will I need to worry about a torque converter?
Are there any "fun" go fast parts I should consider that are related to the tranny?
If there is already a similar thread please re-direct me. thanks
