48RE won't shift 2-3
I know there are a lot of trans threads going on... but it seems like everyone is having shuttle shift issues. I definitely don't have that. My issue is that it's not shifting from 2-3. It was just happening when the trans was cold, now it's happening randomly. I can sometimes shift to N and back to D quick and it'll go to 3rd. When it does shift, it slams into gear. Whenever I accelerate normally, it will hold 2nd until 2300 RPM and then slam to 3rd. If I get on it, the shifts are actually perfect. Much smoother and exactly the right points. What the crap! I adjusted the bands, didn't help. I see threads about TV cable.. and I don't know what that is or how to check it. Any ideas?
I took it to a local trans shop today, and I wasn't impressed. They didn't really have any thoughts other than put it on their diagnostic machine, but they didn't think it would show anything. I also asked if they did any upgraded transmissions, and they said "No, these Dodge transmissions get expensive". No crap.. I didn't say I didn't want to pay for it LOL. If you know any good shops in Northern IN I'd be interested in that too!
