Possible causes are: Incorrect brake band adjustment, 3rd clutch piston seal leaking, faulty brake band. Faulty shift valves, 2.3 shift solenoid electrically faulty.

Hi,

I’m a moderator for this topic. It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you right away, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're OK with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!

Good afternoon my name is Roy and I will assist you today.

Had a similar issue with one a couple of years ago and found out that the computer must be flashed after replacing the trans or it will continue to shift the same way prior to the repair.

I dont see any TSB on it but I pulled my hair out till I found someone at the dealer who helped me out. They flashed it and it was perfect.

Hope this helps

didnt help another 100 down the drain

Auto Mechanic: Roy, import/domestic specialest replied 4 years ago
ok, very odd for 2 transmissions to have the exact issue. When you had it flashed, did they have any problems getting the tcm to accept the flash?? If it went with no issues then the wiring seems to be ok,

Did the reman people give you any ideas if they has similiar issues?? My only other thought is the tcm is bad but that is usually verified by the unit not accepting the new flashing. Were there any codes remaining in the trans system??
