How hard would it be for someone who has not done an Automatic before to do this?
I am confident in taking most things apart, I just need to understand what is involved first. As such I might pick up the ATSG manual and read it through a few times before taking it up.
Our 02 Excursion with about 130k on the clock is starting to do what I'd deem slipping. You have to give it a lot more goose on hills and towing to get the same affect you would have 30k ago. It doesn't seem horrible... Yet, but it is getting worse. This thing doesn't need to hold 4 billion horsepower, heck, we rarely ever even have the Superchips tune in it. For the most part, it cruises around with its bigger exhaust, K&N filter, and Larry's Black Box and thats it. No lift, stock sized tires, etc. It just tows. Our camper, both our boats, our flatbed with "insert stranded car here" on it... So it needs to keep up the job its been doing so well for so long is all.
I was looking at the SunCoast Extreme Duty Master Rebuild and 4-clutch coast to serve as a basic upgrade. Any thoughts in that area?
When its not towing, it usually serves as moms daily driver, and she has always loved the buttery shifts.
Also... I heard a rumor about a TC
that uses the 5R110 stator, and is significantly more efficient? Is this true?
