Hey guys well I'm back again with yet another issue with my truck I swear if I had a grenande I would blow this thing sky high !
I currently have 238,xxx miles on my truck and just changed the trans fluid about 2 weeks ago due to getting into some deep water.I changed fluid,filter and still have some water in it i'm sure from it being in torque convertor anyways pulling out of driveway this morning I noticed when I put it in drive it did'nt want to go anywhere until It finally caught.The fluid level is fine and then it was shifting fine once I got moving and made it to work with no problems then on my way home leaving a from a light it would'nt shift into 2nd until like 3,100 rpms and started shifting hard so checked fluid again which was still fine a little milky too.So I babyed it home.Kinda wonder if it's the "TPS" that's going bad which is why it's shifting funny along with still having some water in it.Would a bad "TPS" cause shifting problems I think it would. I've also heard that changing fluid after a long time is sometimes a bad thing not sure though but I had to get the water out. I hope it did'nt screw up the tranny by doing so. I also started hearing a weird noise when I was pulling into my neighborhood which the only way I can describe is the way when the power steering fluid is low and you get that whining noise and it's not doing it when I'm turning the wheel.It's doing it in park and neutral when I revv it up. not sure if it's a pully bearing going bad but not sure how that would sound.I noticed that my power steering fluid was really low and like it also had some water in it. but it's not making any noise when I turn the wheel.Just when I'm in park or neutral and revving it up. any ideas what this noise can be ? I swear I go one step forward then get pushed 2 back !
thanks for any help on this guys ~Ronnie~
P.s I forgot to mention that I also hear the noise when I'm driving...I parked in my driveway and just revved up the motor and was hearing the noise and also when I put it into neutral same noise without touching steering wheel.any ideas ? I know that my truck has an exhaust leak could it just be from the leak getting worse and its making a louder noise when I rev it up but like I said it sounds like a whine not a squeal or anything like that. I wish there was a way to upload a video of the sound...
