    Alright, this is something i have never read about happening so here goes. I was at a light today, and i went to go and it felt like my rear tires slipped on the paint line, but there wasnt one there. I am hoping that its not something to do with the gears or anything. My truck is a 03 1500HD 4x4, 3" blocks an cranked keys. Now before anybody says its the blocks, i had this happen before i put them on the truck. Any ideas on what may be the cause? THanks in advance.

    The only thing that could slip is the transmission. Or the tires on the pavement. Everything else is gears. They don't slip. They break, and make noise in the process.

    Well, guess its time for a check up then.

    sounds like your a little low on tranny fluid, mine did that and got worse so I took it to a tranny shop to get checked and the owner told me that it was low pressure levels in the torque coverter and to just keep a eye on fluid levels when I change oil

    So would you say just add like a quart of tranny fluid then?

    Do you know how to check your transmission fluid? Overfilling is just as bad, and usually worse, than underfilling.

    Red handled dip stick or is there a certain way?

    Yeah, it's usually red, passenger side right up by the firewall. Transmission warm, engine idling in park.
