I have a new torque converter and that Transgo Jr kit installed if that would make any difference. Is there any kind of anjustment that needs to be made after the trans is installed? Something I am missing here?
Yep it does lock up in 3rd.
It goes 1st -> 2nd -> 3rd -> 3rd with lock up -> 4th with lock up.
The transgo kit has options to firm up torque converter lock up.. and there are different options depending on if you have a converter with a woven carbon lining or not. That seems only to apply to 96-98 4t60-e converters though.
Just as long as you have the correct converter for what was done while installing the transgo kit, you should be good to go... Unless you have a looser converter than what you started with.. Lock up is typically raised when installing these so the computer dosen't see too much slip in lower rpms.
More than anything else, I think you need to resolve your FDR issue...
