Over the last month or so I've noticed my transmission starting to be a little delayed in shifting from 1st to 2nd. Yesterday the truck actually jerked and popped (bucked) going into 2nd, 4 times in a row as I went down the street. Took the truck in to the mechanic and the fail code was P18 something (transmission related) and P141 (oxygen sensor).
Mechanic said he cleared the codes and if the codes come back in a day or so, it's rebuild time! But, if it takes a few days before it happens again, then he may have a fix for it by boring out one of the valves and replacing it?
This comes just two weeks after I had the transmission serviced (came back all clear and included a pressure and flow check), which was the done due to an overheat and blowout towing the boat home. The truck has 128K miles and I've never had any problems with it.
Thanks in advance.
have the same problem?
