unexpected trans/converter/electrical problem.
I wanted to get a few heads together so i can figure out whats up with my 96.
It has a TFHS 5.4 4r70w, that has about 10k miles on it, and a dirtyd0g 4000rpm stall converter with the same mileage. The trans has a 28k gvr cooler on it. The fluid is up there, looks bright red and clean.
Here's the symptoms..
The car will act fine when i first start it up, then after about 2 minutes of driving it will pretty much stop putting power to the tires, and just free rev, just barely moving the car.
It seems like its shifting, but its shifting so soft you can't even feel it shift.
Then sometimes out of first gear it will shudder really bad.
The first time this happened, i barely got the car home, i had to go up a slight incline and barely made it up.
Then i started to hear a buzzing/grinding sound from the transmission area that increased with intensity when i revved the engine in neutral or park.
What the hells going on here?
I talked to Alan, he gave me a checklist of things to do, the first one was to replace the mlps. I replaced it with a spare i had here, and didn't make a difference.
