What are you monitoring trans temps with?



Going up a hill where a vehicle needs a little more power due to low rpm it would normally drop from 5th to 4rth or 4rth to 3rd. Mine drops straight from 5th to 3rd under very little throttle. This sends rpm much higher than it needs to be, and I'm then letting off the throttle to get it to upshift one gear.



One of the first things I did with less than 5k miles was put a deeper pan on the trans. It had a place for a temp sensor. I put the sensor in to read on the Edge monitor.

It sounds like your throttle pedal is to sensitive, Iíd say mine is the complete opposite and holds gears longer than my 06 DMax van did.

If it hadn't ran this way since day one that is what I would have thought as well. Engine tune didn't change anything in that department though

We are all here to help each other but that can be difficult with certain people. How do you help people who claim to be smarter than everyone and all of us are wrong ?

If this has truly been an issue since day 1 then I would have had it covered under warranty immediately. 4 years and 50,000+ miles later smells a lil funny.

The tune warranty thing with rebuilt transmissions is to make sure you have latest OEM calibration.

Downshifts and revs to high ? What is the to high RPM ?

What are the trans temps as read with a scan tool ? Trucks came with a transmission thermal bypass but not 100% sure the vans did.

You are still overthinking the tuning and making it more complicated than it is.
