what is the gear ratio. 2003. trass is slow shift in to 3rd gear 4th gear isOK. no CEL 1 and 2 are ok. it did throw a code at 145k no issue telling got to 170k
the rebuild only lasted exactly "41,000 miles". 128,900 to 169,900miles

it's slow to shift into 3rd when pressing the gas it just rev''s the engine. 4,000 5,000 rpm. like if I had it in neutral gear


if I pump the gas it will shift to 3rd or fether light gentle on gas peddle also. seem's a bit better once warmed but will do the rev if pressed normally.



it's 1800 to rebuild12k 1year. 2100+labor for a new one with 3 year 100k warranty

used one with 66k miles for$ 550 to $650 +labor with 64k miles 12mo 12k mile warranty

I'll try resetting the computer by removing the battery. could be a computer glitch

depends on what they did on the "rebuild" Not all rebuilds are the same. Most dont rebuild, they only replace whats wrong and call it a rebuild since they had to take it all apart.

Could be a simple Pressure Control Solenoid. They probably didnt replace it if they didnt think it was bad, but its got a ton of miles on it and could have gone bad

Maybe its time for a TEP transmission. Seems like that is the one place that rebuilds them correctly
