Transmission is starting to fail again for the 3rd time.
Previous history of this tranny at following link.
Truck has 34k km. (21k miles) on it now.
Took it to another dealership under warranty. They took it out for a
test drive and found no problems, also no message codes came up.
These are the present observations.
On occasion after coming to a stop and then proceeding again, tranny
will slam hard into gear at start and then operate normally in 1st and
Most of the time when tranny is shifting between 2nd and 3rd there is
a slight rev-up of engine for a second and then it will engage
properly in 3rd. ( tach shows a slight rev. increase )
All the time when starting out on the highway, tranny will stay in
3rd gear for approx 20 min. and then sometimes shift into overdrive.
Tach will read 3400 rpm speed 110km/hr. When it was operating
normally? it used to shift into overdrive at 70km/hr. and up under
Last dealership when they took it out for a test drive never took it
above 70km/hr. This is after I told them about the above problems.
I'm taking the truck back again next week and would appreciate any
info. that anybody can give me that I can forward to the service
manager as to how to fix this tranny once and for all. These people
need all the help they can get.
Talked to a couple of tranny shops in Edmonton but there is nothing
they can do while the truck is under warranty.
The most weight this truck has ever hauled is a 1200 lb. boat.

If it wasn' for all the tranny problems I'm having, this would be a
great truck. I also realise that the tranny is one of the better ones
to have since it is the one that was the most reliable in the service
trucks that are used in the oil patch.
thanks in advance
