'00 XLT 4x4 stumble at speed... O/D issue?
i posted a thread about this ongoing issue my trucks been having while driving, i think i may have pinpointed the problem to be something with the trans, and not the engine as i originally thought. btw, the truck is an '00 XLT 4x4 with a 4 speed auto trans, and the 3.0 v6, and just under 73,000 miles.
driving along at 45-55 MPH, if i keep my foot out of it, the truck likes to drop into overdrive. im fine with that, but the problem is if the road starts to pull even a slight uphill grade and i need to tickle the throttle to maintain speed, the entire truck starts to shake, and its been getting worse ( thought it was an issue with the wires at first, now it feels like a horrible alignment issue).
but if i lay into it a bit more, it downshifts and the problem clears up.... untill it drops back into O/D and needs to downshift again. just to be sure, i drove out to work and home with the O/D off, and not a single issue.
just wondering if anyone knows what the heck could be wrong, mabe a sensor, relay or a shift solinoid, something like that? im just praying im not gonna start to loose my trans.....
