After driving my truck more and more, I am becoming ever more curious as to what to listen for, feel for, and look for to alert me on transmission problems. Im not having a problem with it now, I just want to know what to look for in the future. Also, when it does go out, what would you all recommend when I do get it rebuilt? What kind of parts, additional parts, anything special?
Trust me, you'll know when it goes.. that won't be a problem.
Don't spend you life trying to listen for it go out.. lifes too short. Just drive it and make a reasonable attempt to keep it maintained. Listen to the stereo .. watch the hotties go by, and forget about the tranny. You can't drive around with that feeling of doom lurking over you.. relax, and enjoy the drive, man.
Most any tranny shop will know what it takes to rebuild it bettert han stock provided they are a quality shop. If they don't know, find another shop.
If you still want to know, do a search here under tranny rebuild... I'm not going to type out everything that makes up a good rebuild.. it's been posted here enough times that it should be plenty easy to find using the search feature.
when it does go at all costs build it or replace it with something better and do the work yourself. were not here to tell people to take rigs to the shop and have them repaired.
were here to learn how to get to know our vehicles better and do more on our own. ill look for good list of parts and tools requred to get the job done and post back here.
