    I'm not too familliar with trannies, but I think that mine is going. when I step on the trottle hard, it down shifts and the engine screams like it should, the only thing is that the truck dosent take off like it should. It stays at the same speed that I was traveling before it downshifted. Is there any way to know for sure what the problem is. Also I am having trouble with my heat. I go to school in WV, and it has been damn cold! the heater blows air but it doesnt get hot enough to warm the truck. The engine temp is up, I was thinking the core could be buggerd up. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    sounds like your trans is sliping but before you pull it out check the fluid level and condition. as for the heater make sure your rad is clear full, if its not you wont have water in the core to heat the air.

    If fluid levels are ok try backflush on heater core.If you have used stopleak it seems to stop heater cores flow sometimes.Had to replace mine cause of this. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
