Hello! My name is Gary.
Welcome to JustAnswer.
I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with a reply shortly.

Hi Greg,

What do mean revving out in 4th gear?

Do you mean the trans is slipping?

Does the engine light come on?

Have you checked the transmission level, engine running in park?

Fliud was fine and yeah it slips the check light comes on when I'm doing around 110 but its reving at 4500 when it used to rev at about 2500 at 110

Hi Gregg,

The first thing you need to do is avoid driving at this speed while this slipping is occurring.

We need to get the code that is set.

Hopefully it is not too late to save the transmission.

I've replaced many transmission internal harnesses for similar issues.

It drives fine in 1-2-3 but 3-4 is bad its fine in town but on the high way no good
Could a trans swap fix it or will that not solve the problem I have a spare

Is the spare a good runner?

If it is, I would drop the pan, replace the internal harness, and filter.


Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Yeah it's a runner
And will do thanks for the help

You are welcome Gregg.

Wishing you a speedy repair.

Kind regards
