Guess who gets to buy a new Trans

Yep, me. dammit. This one lasted just about a year on the calendar. But when you consider that I put less than 25 miles a day on it, and I was laid up for 3 months from heart surgery, a year !?!?!?! This one was built with the parts in my sig, I've been careful to avoid 2nd prime, it should've lasted longer, no ?

I did race the truck one weekend in August, but that's about it. WTF ? I've yet to see what the guy who built it is going to do for me, I'm not hopeful. I'm looking at it from starting at square one again.

It seems like I only have 2 of the 3, non-O/D gears and no O/D. When it shifts, it's really hard. It wants to stall at a stop light. So far the Diablo I-1000just tells me 0700. Generic Trans code, I know. It has also done that weird, 2nd gear clunk, down step type thing at we don't like them to do. It seems like 1st gear is missing now. It starts in 2nd, even if I pull it into 1st manually. So, I'll et a better scanner tomorrow and see if I can pull trans codes. But I'm not hopeful.

So, who builds the best 545s ? Or, what parts combo will build something that can hang ? I like this truck and I don't want to give up on the project for this recurring deal. Funny, my R/T down with a bad trans now too. Already paid to have something stout built, I just need to get the ruck to P.I.E.in Delaware. Anyway, what's my plan here guys ?

There are alternatives to the 545. But none of them easy or cheap.

It's beginning to look like I need a trans. I read your thread, we should talk. You can see in my sig what I have now, and I guess you read what my symptoms are. your thoughts ?

OK, so I cleared the 0700 code, there were no others, and it's been fine for a week. I'm think a particularly spirited 1-2 manual shift, on the day this happened, might have put me into limp mode. Maybe the line pressure got too high, I dunno. All I know is that it hasn't acted up since the reset.
