Let'* get back to the topic and try ot solve this problem.

So heat is not an issue. And it continued to act funky today. But only if you shift in and out of D/OD or the other way around.

The electronics I believe are mostly internal and are a pain to get at, but I'm not positive. I know the TCC soleniod which I don't think is your problem is a $30 part but hours and hours of labor to put in.

I assume you didn't put the tranny cooler on recently and you've checked fluid level... I'm out of ideas, but one of the vets will jump in with some fresh ideas.

The sad part is that none of you live close enough to me so that I can be of help...LMAO...

Man if you were my neighbor, there would be a scantool sitting here for you, along with a PCM and EPROM for testing.... Multimeter...bla bla bla...

I'm interested to see what the PCM is telling the trans to do and what the trans is doing.. Could be a bad solenoid, bad range switch, bad wire, bad ground, or even the PCM not being happy... Hard to say with all of the electronics these days... With all of the miles on that trans anything is possible... Good Luck Man

Oh, Nice to see you again

tranny coolers were put on when I bought the car 2.5 years ago
My car has trans fluid changes 1 to 2 times per year

I use drive on city driving to stop the trans from shifting so much, and use OD on the highway were it doesn't shift so much, also OD on the highway saves gas.


Also want to mention that I was told that this is not the orig. trans. So theres not 185,000 miles on this one.

I usually put in OD when I go anywhere, on the HWY or in town.

yeah that'* what i do too....but does putting it in drive while in the city really help? and i'm assuming that you stay under about 47mph when doing that, right?
