hey diabolic...

any track times after the T/R sensor?


I replace a bunch of **** today (coil, fuel filter, took the plenum spacer out, made sure there where no vacuum leaks) and my truck still runs like ass..just wondering if that fixed it for you


BTW, in first gear at around 4500 I get 2 loud pops/bangs from the tranny, then it shifts at 5200, is that normal?

I never got a chance to make it to the track(work), but I will. My truck always ran good after I would unplug the battery for a few minutes. I know this is going to sound really ridiculous, but it's 100% true. I noticed that I could drive for days without a singlr problem, but whenever I pulled up to 0ne intersection in particular, it would shift hard as soon as I pulled away from it. First I thought it was just a coincidence, but it happened 3 times in a week at the same spot. I took along a friend with me this weekend, and went to the spot just to prove myself wrong. I had already gone more than 65 miles since I had unpluged the computer and not one problem. I pulled up to the intersection, and pulled to a stop. Started to accelerate and the 1-2 shift almost broke our necks! There is a huge power station at the intersection. It's got to be messing with my electronics! I know it sounds way out there, but I have no other explination.

You shouldn't be getting any noises from the tranny. Have you heard them since you removed the chip? If so, you may want to get the tranny looked at. If it's going out on you, that could explain your times.

ok, so the noises arent normal, it still does it after I removed the chip, it used to do it in second gear, now it does it in first. Maybe I will try chaning the tranny fluid, how many quarts does it take if i drain the pan and the converter?

It might be a backfiring from the engine, but it sounds like 2 loud pops from the transmission.

It takes about 16-17 quarts if you drain it all, but not all of it comes out sometimes. When I change mine, I add a case and then just one at a time to make sure I don't overfill it.

Definitely not normal, and sounds really bad. It may be that whenever that chip was in there, it did some irreversible damage. But, I have heard similar sounds from guys with loose transmission crossmembers, etc. Go under and check all the bolts, check your radius arm bushings, etc. Things like that could make those clunk noises during shifting. But it shouldnt shift that high on a stock computer, should be 4600, 4700, 4700 (1-2, 2-3, 3-OD) stock, I believe.

ok, well I am pretty sure the TR sensor is bad, it shifts HARD after a long (100+ mile drive) and I have to clear the ecu to get it to shift normal. I'm going to try replacing it and see if that doesnt help...
