new tranny and problems!!!

alright guys i have a ATS tranny and just installed it today.at the first test drive around the block and it was shifting great.i had to get some fuel and while filling up i looked under the truck and had a little drip of fluid coming out of the front line,checked the fluid level and it was full so i went by a buddy's house on the test drive and borrowed a line wrench from to tighten it up.i got it snugged up and when i left the tranny wouldn't shift out of first,tried it several times and same thing so i manually shifted it and it does fine then.i let the tranny cool off for 2 hours while went out to eat got in the truck and it was shifting like it was supposed too until i go hot again and it started doing the same thing.i have checked all plugs and the have current to them.could this be a bad syliniod pack?

If its changing shifting patterns in accordance with fluid temps, it sounds internal to me.

Re: new tranny and problems!!!

Did you install an inline filter?
Why didn't ATS fix it?

Brand new trans and the customer has to work on it to get it to function properly,, daayyuumm.

Re: new tranny and problems!!!

Who recommended changing the solenoid pack? Better yet, who recommended ATS??

Re: new tranny and problems!!!

There was no way a solenoid pack would cause those problems. Its either on, or off, no in between. I wish you luck with the dispute.

FWIW, you should stay far away from ATS..

FYI you may want to read your warranty info before you dispute charges otherwise you may find yourself out a lot more money.

Re: new tranny and problems!!!

who did you speak to at ATS BEFORE you worked on the transmission? who sold you the transmission? did you buy it direct?
