Very odd...on my way home tonight...stopped at a light...turned green..went to go, lightly as usual...but the engine just revved slowly like in neutral...felt a little catch and heard what sounded like the transfer case making some engaging sound...and then let off and hit it again, lightly..still no grab....and did it again, and it finally got the truck moving...but didn't feel fully engaged or anything
going down the road at about 40 about 500 feet down the road, i let off completely and then went WOT for a second to test down shift engagement and only down shifted once and felt REALLY lethargic.


Continued driving normally, and in the next 3 stops on the way back...no other hesitations...

wtf is the deal there? Checked fluids....transmission is full and clean clear pink.

This thing has SO many separate control systems I wouldn't even know where to start to look, other than the basic fluid condition and other obvious things...

just find that odd....

doubt i should be worried...but its just one of those things that kinda bothers you on a 37k truck

Seems to be acting normal for the most part. Did another 4 of those hesitations after my first post...latest being yesterday. Now it just feels like it wants to catch..stumbles...you let off.and go and its fine again. Otherwise, it seems to shift fine. Transfer case is working fine as well, Auto 4, 2, 4HI and 4LO are working alright and engage on demand. Overall performance is normal as well, gets seriously moving when you want it to.

I am taking a trip in one month, early may...gonna be a 2800 mile trip. Really need this to be nice and happy before I leave. Service plan in ranking order is as follows.

1. Transmission flush (Dealer, Dex 6)
2. Oil change (Mobil 1, PureONE)
3. Air Filter (PureONE)
4. Rear Differential (Amsoil Severe Gear)
5. Front Differential (Amsoil Severe Gear)
6. Coolant Swap (Green to replace DEX)

I hope to get some of that done before I leave, but I'm thinking only the first 3, maybe 4, are actually going to happen.

I know what I'm doing in this situation, but I am always open to all suggestions.

yeah, I have drive by wire. I believe thats a 2004+ thing.

I was thinking that too, apart of my constant disliking and doubting of the drive by wire system...but have eliminated it because the engine revs, but the truck doesn't move when this happens. and you can always hear the transmission or transfer case doing SOMETHING. dunno what.
