Is it normal to see slip % readings while the truck is shifting gears till lock up in 5 th. gear ?

Thanks for the help

Until the converter locks, you will see a lot of slip. This because the fluid is the only thing transmitting power.

The edge reads the engine flywheel speed (rpm) and the trans output shaft speed and determines a slip reading. When the TC clutch isn't locked it will slip and thats what the attitude will read. When the TC clutch locks up there should be 0% slip.

The guys are correct, but as I've said before, don't completely trust it.

I took the slip % off the monitor cause it was causing me grief. I'll just run it til the tranny is pulled by a wrecker

LOL...well I'm not quite sure I'd disregard slip that much, but to each his own.

I was talking more about built trannys showing slip...
