Think my tranny is on its way out.

It doesnt want to shift out of first gear. I can let off and then go back in with the pedal (sometimes takes 2 or 3 times) and it will go into second. Once in second, all is well.

No noise, no heat issues, no warning signs. Has shifted fine until now.

This is a factory 96k mile tranny with a Suncoast converter, shift kit, and billet input shaft. Temp have never been over 190. Average temp 165.

Does this sound like a minor part issue, or a toasted transmission?

Re: Think my tranny is on its way out.

Well, a couple months ago I broke the overdrive planetary....so the tranny was out for that. While it was out, a general inspection was done of the clutches etc. as well as the convertor. They did not tear the transmission completely down. I also added a 300M input shaft from John Wood at that time.

New fluids etc at that time, but I dont think he flushed it. (maybe he did?)

Re: Think my tranny is on its way out.

Yeah I was just taking a guess... when I did my shift kit I noticed a little bit of gray residue in the valve body... my shifting was fine but I thought to myself... what would happen if this crap was gummed up in the orifices.

Now have you tried it with the gear shifter in 1 and then throw it into 2 or D?

Re: Think my tranny is on its way out.

Ok. Does the same chit shifting manually. Will not go into second unless you let out and feather back in to it.

:supergay:

really sucks. Think I might order a extreme rebuild kit and get it done locally if it's toasted. Cant be without the truck for long.

Re: Think my tranny is on its way out.

Don't order the suncoast kit by itself. Talk to Racer X, the suncoast kit for a 7.3 is missing several things. He can get you the parts to do a good build.

JW can also supply you with parts from what I hear, Racer X has these setup and ready to go though, hit him up.

That's what I'm gonna do.
