Well I had a bit of an oopsies today. So we are trying to diagnose why it doesn’t want to shift while it’s in drive so we had a friend over that has the equipment to diagnose it. We took it on the road (for the very first time with the 5.3 and since it’s been in my ownership), and it turns out either A, it needs a speed sensor hooked up because otherwise it’s not telling the transmission when to shift, or B, it needs a transmission solenoid. Well that’s all fine and dandy. So we pull it back in the drive way and as we come to a stop and we get out, the transmission cooler line blows.
It turns out the fan was wearing on the tranny cooler line and wore a hole right through it. So it dumped all of the transmission fluid onto the ground. So we got out some 3/8 steel line, cut out the chunk with the hole in it, and bent the line so that it would be well clear of the fan. I knew I should have looker closer at distance from the fan to it’s surroundings
. Well lesson learned I guess. And luckily it was in the driveway and not 30 miles away. And we have a better idea as to what needs to happen and it’s (hopefully
) not too complicated.
