second warranty TCM. what do i do now? truck does not tow, and is not abused. no engine mods at all. anybody know of a "simple" fix for this? truck has 29,000 miles. hoping to get this problem taken care of before warranty runs out.
truck lurches on take off like a slipping tranny, shifts become sloppy, temps go up to about 230. truck runs solo at all times, no trailer, no loads. truck does have the snap that it did new. was in the shop at 6000 miles for blown intake gasket, so this truck has been a problem child for a while. dont use tow/haul. the invoice says check fluid level, check TCM for shift business, replace TCM.
Why don't you repost this in the Ask dmaxalliTech forum tomorrow. When Eric gets back from vacation I'm sure he would have some input on this. This sounds like a very odd failure and the fix sounds odder. I'm wondering if this dealer isn't just throwing parts at the problem without really knowing what's wrong. Let's face it 1 computer fails okay. 2 Computers fail??? HUH?? Either something is damaging them or the dealer doesn't have a clue. Either way they aren't fixing it are they??
I dont think its the TCM, Its a tranny issue 230 degree temps from a tranny is NOT normal. Are the techs at your service dept. competent?....Sounds like high temps are being caused by slipping or slipping is causing high temps. Replacing the TCM wouldnt fix this issue....its a bad tranny or something no right
i'll repost in the other forum. thanks for the replies. seemed quite odd to me that the TCM was junk again too. like i said earlier, this truck has been a problem child. may just have to take it to a different dealer.
