Yes, according to the shop the pcm is sending the signal to randomly engage and disengage the tcc even when it is not supposed to. This problem didn't exist until they rebuilt the transmission and replaced everything. They have now said they replaced all of the sensors again (I'm skeptical) and it is still bad. I think the torque converter could be causing this just as well though. I am taking the truck to have the pcm checked and would really like to get my hands on some schematics so I can troubleshoot the thing myself.
