Thread: Trans issues??

    Default Trans issues??

    Hello and first let me say I am a newly registered member of this site but have reffered to it many times in the past on any tech issues. The question I have is in regards to my transmission. Today I was cruising around 45 mph when me truck began having what felt like a slight hesitation and then it would pick up again. Looking down at my gauges I could see that the RPM gauge would flutter between around 1300 and then kick up to 1700 and drop down again each time that I felt the hesitation and pickup. Is this a forwarning that a trans rebuild id in my future? Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

    Welcome to the club. I would have the truck scanned for transmission codes and or have it scanned while you drive and see if its slipping or the torque converter not locking up. How many miles on transmission? When was it serviced last? Does the fluid look/smell burnt?
