The truck made the noise in tow/haul mode and regular mode both. It was at a specific rpm range. Just as loud in tow/haul mode. I didn't ask if they changed the filter and fluid. Truck comes with factory trans temp guage, which never went over the halfway mark (can't remember actual temperature reading). Truck always tows heavy loads very well, I love it. Just a defective torque converter with too high of tolerances inside that became apparent this summer whether it was a result of towing or not. I do like the sound of a larger trans pan, never a bad idea I guess. I have added trans coolers to my previous trucks as well, but this one seems to tow with ease at good temps.
