Plenty of post on lockup hunting. Generally a result of poor electrical connections or radio frequency interference. Extra condenser on alt positive and shielding of electical wiring from alterantor is second area of consideration. There are also $100 sure fixes if you believe in tooth fairys. Each one is potentially different. Hunt down previous posts in old pages of this forum.
What do you feel when you are going in and out of lock up? My truck sometimes doesn't seem like all the power gets to the wheels when I gun it but if i give lots of gas but not floor it, then it is real smooth consistant power.:confused013:
I seem to have fixed the problem , I unhooked the alternator and drove> It raised the in and out of lockup to over 50 mph. Came back hooked up the alternator back up, it has worked fine every since. Must have been a bad connection at the alt.
My truck is a stock 99 2500 2wd it has the BD TorqLoc and pressureloc for the automatic and 4inch exhaust
mines doing the same thing i just bought a new alt. it fixed it for about 4 days then it came right back so im back at the starting line. its not as bad now as it was my terminals are clean sanded down paint at grounds put dielectric grease on alit. harness still no help so im gonna watch here for help.i am thinking of dtt filter but dont know which wires to cut
If the problem comes back clean your battery terminals. On the neg side clean the other end of the cable (where it grounds to the engine block) and that should fix your problem. Good luck and welcome to the forum......:thumbsup:
