Anybody else with this going on...?
2010 Hemi Truck (1500 Reg Cab Shortbox)
545rfe auto trans
Annoying tranny noise`s come an go constantly... can make it do it anytime... (only hear it AFTER the torque converter goes into lock up) the noise description sounds like
a A/C compressor turning on an off all the time that has been overfilled will freon or a/c oil... the engine power drops when i hear it too. (its NOT the AC compressor either, i already unhooked that, so thats not whats doing it) Its definately coming from the transmission. Hit the switch on the shifter and drop it into 5th or 4th, noise gone. Also push in the dash button for tow mode, noise also goes away until converter locks up into overdrive mode again. The noise does effect it when in OD, it just makes the grumbaling noise and the tranny stays in OD until you push the gas pedal down to get it to stop makin noise`s. Dosent seem to be getting worse, but it isnt going away either. Its done it since the day i drove it home. Anybody else ever heard of that with the 2009 and 2010 hemi`trucks...?
Also the exhaust is horrible on this truck...
sounds like ther`s something rumbling inside the resonator at the backend.
Just a real nasty droneing sound when you drive the truck at lower speeds.
Took to 3 different dealers already... nobody has a clue...!
All they seem to know how to do is, bring it back when it quits or breaks.
I spent 30yrs working in dealerships as a top mastertech,
since retiring, i`ve never been so depressed with todays so called tech`s and dealers.
Anyhow, hope maybe someone else has heard of this type of complaint...
maybe with a few good heads together we might be able to help others including me
Thanks guyz - HEMI5150
