The rotary shifter module itself has internal mechanisms to lock the dial, and limit its rotation. It's more complicated than you might expect, since there are no fixed positions. For example, if...

One big reason for applying the parking brake (when parking on an incline), besides just the extra safety factor, is that otherwise, the weight of the truck is resting on the park pawl in the...

Hmmmm.... this makes no sense (I think I've said that before, as I'm sure you have, too!). You've already replaced everything in the TCC control system (pump, VB, and converter). No way the TCC...

But did they actually run the quicklearn procedure? The flash (per the TSB) only gives them the ability to run a quicklearn (that capability did not exist in the original software).

How do you know the TCC is locking up in Neutral? In Neutral (or Park), the trans input speed is NORMALLY about equal to the engine speed. Are you getting an engine stumble coming to a stop, even...

That depends on exactly what's modified by the "tuner." And since I don't know the details of how any of the aftermarket tuners are programmed, I can't say one way or the other.

In general,...

P0750 is an LR Solenoid Circuit fault, which indicates a problem with (duh) the LR solenoid circuit. This fault will put you in full limp-in mode (4th gear all the time with no TCC engagement), so...

I think you would probably be best off with one of the aftermarket "trans tuners" that actually alters the shift pattern, desired line pressures, shift timing, etc.

Yes, it could possibly be damaging to the clutches, depending on how often it's shifting back and forth. Try to drive as gently as possible. You might also try manually downshifting it to hold it...

I think you'll find that line pressure "boosters" like this will initially give you a firmer shift, but over time the trans will "learn" back to what it considers a smooth shift. So eventually you...
