i have been noticing that when i floor it and it shifts into second it sometimes does like a half shift, then a slight pause, then fully shifts. It does not do this all the time though. Is this normal?

Not normal, it is probably the governor pressure solenoid and the transducer going bad. I believe their is a TSB out for the issue. I had to change mine the other day.

My 06 does that at low rpms, i asked this site and they said its a tsb valve problem, here is what he sent me. My truck is goin to the dealer on Tuseday to get it fixed under warrenty.

There is a TSB that has to do with the Transmission searching for second in low RPMs. Just call your local dealer and have them do this TSB. This is from another post on another thread:

As long as you are still under warranty it is free ... if not then you will pay.
