Mileage: 102,000. I took my truck in to my local dealership for a trans service at 85,000 miles. Up to that point, I had no problems whatsoever. Fluid nice and red but dirty. 15,000 miles after the service I noticed a low roaring noise after a 250 mile trip. I could make it stop by putting truck in neutral. I decided to check trans fluid. The fluid level was good but the fluid was as black as used motor oil. I immediately took it in to the same dealer to have it looked at. They said they had no idea what caused it. They drained fluid, replaced filter, and flushed the trans twice. Pan had NO shavings whatsoever. After driving 50 miles, the fluid still was black. Not quite as bad as previously, but still black. They told me everything checked out OK and thre had no clue as to the cause. Told me to to just drive it and watch it closely. After 500 miles it started slipping VERY badly. It barely got me back to the dealership 2 miles away. They have now told me the clutches must be worn. That's all they know. I am just wondering if there was anything that they could have done at the 85,000 mile trans service to cause the trans to fail. I have a hard time accepting it just failed, coincidentally after the service. The 102,000 miles are almost all highway miles with NO towing at all. Please give me your input.
have the same problem?
