Default Torque Converter!!!!!!!!!!

Had it replaced today at 6800 miles on my 2011 Big Horn Hemi Crew Cab.

Runs as smooth as butter now, but I'm crossing my fingers.

Going to quit babying it and "run it like I stole it".

Other than a bigger fuel bill, the smile on my face should override it.

Oh, I'm a 71 year old that remembers the "muscle car years" like they were yesterday

If the Converter noise comes back there will be a Silverado in my driveway.

Yes, what type of noise did you hear? I have a groaning moaning noise that comes and goes. I'm also getting extreme down shifting at 45-40mph and makes a big clunk and jerks the truck. Going to the dealer tomorrow.

i had the same symptoms as you Army, and the dealer installed a PCM update for driveability. the shifting is a great deal better, but i still have the groan...seems to be when it shifts to OD...between 50-60 kmh and again over 80kmh.

Of course the dealer couldnt replicate the groan, however, im going to try another delaership later this week. Im thinking it is my TC aswell.

People have described it as the sound a frisbee makes when its sliding across pavement.

I can't say cause my TC is good!

Primo,

GOing to the dealer for the wifes Jeep Grand Cheroke seat issue tomorrow and will take them on a drive and show that star case and see where it goes.

M.Scip,

It sounds like a throw out bearing on a stick shift that is going out on you. Mine can grona anytime it goes into a overdrive. Some times I can get it to happen going 35mph but really does it from 45 up.

Gary

So is there a actual recall on the TC? I can't really tell on my truck since I have an aftermarket exhaust system.

I can hear the frisbee sound coming from my truck. I comes and goes, but is usually when the engine/tranny is warm, and running in low rpm cruise. I doesn't bother me to much, but I'm wondering if letting it go will make other problems later. If its just a noise thing, I'll ignore it, but if it's gonna cost me a pile of money right after its out of warranty, I'll have it fixed now.

Supposedly not a durability issue....more of a noise issue. TransEngineer posted something a while ago saying it was noise from a clearance / tolerance design. The 2012's are even tighter resulting in no noise.....paraphrasing of course.

Mine has it....doing nothing about it until it gets worse, and can't deal with it noise. Or.....I'd love to see a recall, but highly unlikely for a noise if it's truly NOT a durability or safety issue.
