    Hello, thanks for the info on the transmission. so now that i had some free time i pulled the 46re out. im going to do a full rebuild. im new to the truck world as well as auto trans (come from old RWD Toyota Corollas) so im hoping to find some advise on brands/ kits etc for rebuilding the transmission. If you have any recommendations please let me know. email is preferred.
    was going to do a shift kit as well, if you know of a good one. this is all in a '97 ram 1500 5.9 4x4. Thanks so much!

    I don't think it is the converter. I am fairly certain the valve body has crapped out, but do replace the converter anyways. Be sure to use blue loctite and torque the converter bolts.

    Hey, so i replaced all the sensors and adjusted the bands. The truck stalls out when i start from a stop. It either slams into gear super hard or somthing slips. i think my torque converter crapped out. going to put a new one in. ive just been slacking because the weather has been pretty bad. Thanks for the help!

    Metal shavings are normal, the gears are helical and they have allot of thrust forces which cause grinding. The benefit is the helical gears have a larger flank area, so they can withstand higher load, and aren't as noisy as straight cut. So, fine powder with the occasional chip of metal is normal, and especially since they are wear mate parts.

    can you please check out my thread and give me some help?
    What new parts should i buy?
    I pulled the pan and filter last night to check the condition of everything. there was a bit of metal shavings inside but not much.
