hey guys I have been noticing that my truck doesn't shift when I think it should. it seems that when I get off work and pull onto the highway the truck doesn't always want to go into 6th gear so I can be going 65-70 mph at about 20-2100 rpms so I'll put it into 5th manualy and then into 6th and It will slid right into 6th any suggestions?

I have also gave it alot more gas to try and make it shift but the rpms just go higher without it shifting

Thanks in advance
Robert

When their cold the converter won't lock and they won't shift into 6th till they get too a certain temp. Not sure what the temp is or how cold it is where you are but mine takes about a mile in 40 degree weather. Don't know if thats the issue or you have a problem but it's what I know.

yep mine is the same. If it is real cold out it runs in 5th for quite a while then all of a sudden it goes into 6th.
