If larger tc is available it may help a bit but the best way to protect trans while towing is with an add on trans cooler. Have shop give you a guarantee that any tc mod will not void warranty on trans job. We used to use smaller tc on race cars to change stall speed but I've never heard of larger ones for towing. there is an issue of space inside bellhousing so Id like to know how much larger???

Check the sensors on the transmission. May just be corrosion on the sensors or it may be a faulty sensor. Also, the torque converter bearing may have went bad due to the running it on low transmission fluid.

This is the 3rd tranny - Exact same thing is happening.


You might try to add a transmission cooler. If its getting hot it will eat the transmission easily. time to swap it out and sell the problem to someone else.

4L60E won't shift to 3rd on 1995 Chevy Astro 2wd


do the pin point tests, these start witjh running a trouble code test, autozone and kragen will do this for free, if u haven't had the trans apart then cross out any crossed wiring issues, but I do think you will find a problem with the 2-3 shift solenoid, either the solenoid has failed or the connector has a problem on the outside of the trans.
