Went to dealer today and the mechanic and I miss read the "star case" where it says if you hear the grinding noise at 1400-1700 rpms then push the "Tow/Haul" button and it goes away then it is normal and is the MDS. After I left the dealership I started reading the case further and at the end it says if you hear the noise with the tow/haul button pushed at the same rmp's then replace the tourqe converter. Well guess what once I took off from a dead stop with tow/hual on yp was loud and clear at 1400-1700 rpms. What is annoying is if you on a trip with your wife and the radio is off because she wants to talk and you hear that going down the road.

My other issue with the hard down shifting around 40-44 mph is gone with a ECM update so that part is done. Yes the service manager is aware of the grind and the mechanic said he can't really hear due to working with air tools all day but they want me to keep and ear out and report back so will call them up and stop by this week.

I had the TC problem. Actually I introduced that STAR case number to everyone. If you take it back to the dealer and they tell you they don't hear it, you have every right to take them for a ride and show them what to listen for. Luckly, I didn't have a problem with my dealer. I told them a 40k truck should NOT be making a noise like this. Took care of it and truck runs perfect! GOOD LUCK!
