My truck is having trouble shifting if I drive slow and accelerate normal it fine but if I try to accelerate fast my rpms shoot up so I had my transmission scanned and they couldn’t find any code could u point me in the right direction

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you have a scan tool to read the codes?

I don’t personally but I took it to a transmission shop and they scanned it and didn’t find anything

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model/year of your car?

It’s a 2wd and it has the 5.7hemi

Was the trans shop that scanned the truck able to duplicate the problem? is it an intermittent issue ? whats wrong with the exhaust?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
They said they couldn’t duplicate it but I can every time I get in the truck and where the exauhst att arches from the mana folds to the pipe it came loose

Ok so this is an intermittent problem. What is the sceanrio that this happens? Hot/cold etc?

Ask Your Own Transmissions Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Cold I believe but the trans has been running a few degrees hot

There are no technical bulletins for this concern. A cold issue could be a sticking valve or solenoid concern. Since there no codes, its no an electronic fault so i would lean towards a mechanical one. Reprogramming the engine control module/trans module may help and a relearn of the adaptive shift strategy. Only issue I did see was the a tsb for coolant in the transmission fluid, if that was the case, you would have seen the fluid is contaminated.

Ok thanks so when I program it it might fix it and how hard would it be to replace one of those mechanical issues

Depends on what exactly is causing the concern, solenoids arent complicated but programming that im talking about is the dealer kind, not an aftermarket program. If a dealer programs over your tuner, it will be deleted and you would have to reinstall it.
