2007 5R110W, TorqShift question

Sorry this is a little long.

I was pulling my 32ft bumper pull travel trailer (8400lbs). The tow/haul light started flashing and ended up replacing the transmission oil temp sensor and wiring harness. That problem is fixed.

On the way home the truck seems to be hunting a gear and the RPM is rising and lowing about 200 rpms. The engine fan comes on and then goes off a lot. but always cycles on and then off.

I was hit by a car in the parking lot the day before all this started happening. A little fender bender. I was in gear and slammed into drive from reverse trying to get out of the way of the other driver. Could this harse shifting or being hit while in gear cause an issue with the transmission? The other driver is at fault and I am thinking about clamming it on his insurance.

I never had a problem pulling this trailer in the pass.

Just confused and want my transmission fix. What you yall think?

I would without a doubt talk to them about you having to slam it into drive in the attempt to keep from beeing hit and it's been acting diff since. Now whether it has any relevance or not is another thing, but the pain in the neck it's going to be to get your truck fixed the least they can do is look at the trans too.

There is a temp sensor in the shroud might look and make sure there is no problem there.

I can't see how slamming it into drive could harm it. We ran that test and it had to pass thousands of cycles of that,

The best way to solve this is to get a scan tool that can look at live data and see what's happening.
