no it was the nuetral saftey switch. i couldn't get the one off from my old tranny witout brakeing it. $60 and i was good to go. BUT i broke the god dam shift cable putting it on. i had that cable off and on prolly 3 times and i broke it this last time. But tranny shifts ok. it shifts into 4rth and OD a little funny. but it works. I think i am going to sell it and buy me a stick shift one. lol

Automatics are a bitch to play with. I agree with the stick idea.

now it has a bad studder to it. GRRRRRR sometimes it dosn't do it. so i don't think its a fuel filter or anything like that. i am thinking it might be like a coil pack or something like that? bad thing is i don't get a a check engine light. so its not leaving a code. But i will still hook the scanner up to it to see. OH what about a TPS sensor i have read that they will make it do weird things on these trucks??

Is it a studder upon acceleration, or upon deceleration?

acceleration. like above 1/4 throttle and above sometimes feels like its running on 4 or 5 cyl's. which makes me think its a coil pack. I guess maybe could be the plugs. but i would think if it were the spark plugs it would do it all the time. and it dosn't do it all the time. but it is getting more frequent latley.

Sometimes while driving at 55 60 it wll stumble for a spilt second also.

OH i had to cut the exhaust pipe right after the cross member to get the tranny out. I havn't welded the pipe back up yet. so its open after the converters. I wouldn't think that would do it. My old 01 edge i had straight piped and it ran fine like that.

Hmm, check the plug wires. You may have one shorting out or somethin, or not making a good connection.

As for the exhaust, I hate how it runs under the trans.

I checked to make sure the plug wires were all on tight. And i pulled # 6 plug just to see. it looked like new am guessing they were changed not to long ago. unless the didn't get the one on the pass side by the a/c. the one that looks near imposible to get. I also poped the hood while it was running in the dark just to see f i could see any of the plug wires arcking.

You may wanna check that hard to get to plug. Alot of times people get frustrated and just say screw it. It might not have been bad when they replaced the others, but it could be having problems now.

Get a 5 speed next time.

Wasn't this newest transmission just rebuilt? Either the guy you got the truck from lied, or you have a computer issue.
