Failing stall veter or slipping trans?
I have a CPT Level 3 4l60e that I purchased used with very low miles on it. It has a Precision Industries 3 disk 2800 RPM Stall. I have put a little over 5000 miles on it and have noticed it is acting up. So I think..........
At any point in driving (hot or cold) if I am cruising and give it more throttle to say pass a car.
I can feel the torque converter unlock, RPM's jump up to about 3000 (the norm) and the car start to accelerate. If I add more throttle wile doing the the RPM's start to climb higher. 4500-5000. If I do this rather quickly sometimes I can fell a very slight shudder, and more power transferred to the wheels until a bump and no greater pull into the seat. When easing into it I can feel the power transfer more slowly but still have odd climbing RPM's
Oddly enough, if I WOT the car from a stop. Tires spin, 1-2 chirps (feels solid), 2-3 is firm, but not quick, nor slow. Feels fine, slightly firmer than stock. From a roll, the car down shifts, firmly grabs the gear and flat out goes. Feels pretty good at all times (%99.5) other than adding more throttle and more throttle, TC unlocked in the middle of a gear. 1st is too short to really notice anything. 2 and 3 both have the slipping/power transfer fail symptom.
I, typically jumping to the worst possible conclusion, feel that the tranny is starting to slip. Anyone have any ideas as to what I could be feeling? Feel free to ask more questions or for me to preform some sort of tests.
Thanks in advance
