Transmission issue

Hi everyone, I have a '07 5.9 2500 auto and it's having issues going from first to second gear. It revs up and down as its trying to shift. Not real bad, but noticeable. I got the trany fluid changed and the magnet inside was full of shavings. I'm assuming the transmission needs to be rebuilt, but until that happens I have fuel economy concerns. I've had the truck for a year, got a chip put in and am still getting about 12 MPG. Are the two related? Thanks a lot.

Well 12 doesnt sound that good and do you have any upgrades to your tranny? It mite have to much power for a stock trans also.

It does sound like your tranny is going out. If your tanny is having problems it will effect your fuel economey.

My truck was doing that, seemed like it was slipping...it would start out in 2nd gear. It was the Pressure governor solenoid/transducer.

I did not have excessive shavings on my magnet though, it was pretty damn clean!

you dont need a re-build!

You need a borge warner selenoid and pressure sensoe. Also a solid state servo and 12 quarts of new fluid. You can do all the work from home if your comfortable removing your valve body. While your at it, add an oversized pan and temp guage. The total cost is about $500. I just did it. PM me with q's if you need. Here's a helpful link.

the reason why i am asking is because i am having problems with my tranny
going from 1st to second my revs have to hit 3500 rpms before it shifts into second ,i added fluid as it was a little low but still the same added more fluid and it has problems going into overdrive ,so i have to get some fluid out
my intention is not to hyjack a thread but the problem maybe the same
any help will be appreciated

Its not necessary for the solenoid, but a larger pan will allow you to put more fluid which will help keep your trans at a lower temp than a stock pan and stock fluid amounts. My truck is in the shop here in AK right now getting built(minus shafts) I dont plan on doing boosted launches or sled pulls atm. The rebuild kit for mine is 3 grand. Youll wanna upgrade to the billet band and band struts. Get the upgraded solenoids like the previous dude stated and youll be good to roll man
