Just died while shifting
New one for me.
Stock except for chip below.
Just driving down the road 5 miles from home. Not warmed up yet. Left stoplight shifting through the gears and just died and quit. It has occasionally the last year been a bit slow shifting like the Governor pressure sensor or solenoid are getting sticky.
I usually accelerate to 1800-2200 and allow it to shift when ready. The only time I accelerate hard is on the freeway on ramp. Yesterday on a 100 degree day it started acting up a bit again and a little extra throttle and rpm would get it to shift. Not over 26-2800.
I was doing that about 1/4 mile from the light shifting to 3rd and it just did and coasted to a stop. No idle, no missing, any of that. Tried to start several times, and nothing 3-5, Checked under hood and all looked good.
Was sitting in cab, getting ready to call AAA and decided to roll up the windows and did and then hit the key to start and damn if it didn't start. Has been running fine since, several stops, full power, perfect idle, no running issues. same normal 650k smoke accelerating hard. Ran home fine and shifting got better after last stop.
Everything has been running fine for months and longer.
Just straight up Died while shifting, delayed shift with a few extra rpm.
Started after 5-10 minutes and 6 tries. Ran fine since.
No air/fuel leaks. 80 degrees today 100 yesterday.
No visible wiring issues.
No wait to start or ecm issues.
Gauges all normal before and after.
Charging normal and AC at around .03v.
Plenty of fuel. Batteries fine.
Going to check fuel pressure tomorrow, but believe it is fine.
Any thoughts? experience?
