Do you recall the trouble codes that were stored that made them assume the TR sensor was to blame?

No I only had a lean code that was it

When a transmission slips imagine your on ice. The rpms rise high and fast, the vehicle speed going forward though does not actually increase (not meaning watching the speedometer) Is that what is occurring?When it slips are you getting a vibration, jerking, bucking, hiccup type feeling from the truck?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No not getting any rattling noise or anything just watching the RPMs go up that's about it when I cut the overdrive off it drives fine but never getting over 55 / 60
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 1 year ago.
So when overdrive is on, when you get this slip sound or feeling, what is heard or felt or seen?
