Just an update.....Took the tranny pan off and noticed just a few (hair like) metal shavings...I was afraid that I would find a lot, but didn't
....I also inspected the filter and replaced it with a new one....Filter didn't look to bad......You know that it could be one in a million that a sliver of metal shavings would end up on my dipstick when I pulled it out...I barely saw any metal in the pan, nor filter.....The metal could of been just floating next to the dipstick when I pulled it out...Just for thoughts??
Here'* something interesting that I found out today with my OBD2 reader...My reader is one of those $100 cheapy scanner that tells you the Engines codes and has freeze frame data.......Anyways, when I feel that the tranny is shifting hard when Iím driving, I can also expect to hear the tranny pump whining.... So when I feel and hear this tranny acting up, I thought I would try to see if my scanner would pull any codes that were related to this tranny problem.....Of course my scanner can't read tranny codes that are stored in the memory of the computer...But.......It can clear codes...To sum it up, I can't see tranny trouble codes, such as P1811 (max adapt/long shift).....But, I can delete them!!! Right when I delete these unseen codes, the noise from the tranny goes away, and it shifts perfect!!!! I wish there was a way to turn that max adapt/ long shift stuff off...Maybe edit the computer??? When I feel the harsh shifting, I can guarantee you that those metal shavings are from harsh shifting....I know I'm not fixing the problem, but I'm preventing more of a problem........So I will just continue to delete these codes when I feel and hear the tranny acting up..
