SOURCE: car shifts

Hi I am Vortash sounds like Torque slip check your fluid levels in the transmission. Rpm will rise if there is weak drive then as the vehicle reaches change speed it will snatch because the rpm is high .. if your levels are ok you may need to get your Torque converter checked out .. hope this helps regards Vortash

SOURCE: tranny causes engine to stall when tranny warms up

if it feels like your driving a standard transmission ,and "you came to a stop light without pushing clutch in"
that will be the torque convertor lock up,

Just installed used tranny in 99 4.7 it was trying to stall before when putting into drive, now it trys to but it will got into gear. and shifts fine.any ideas. the old one would stall really hard going...

You should have diagnosed the original trans. Would you jump off a bridge if told to? Take it to a trans shop and stop wasting time on something your not familar with. You never install a used trans. Just someone elses junk.

I did a radick on the transmission iator flush and installed a "T" in one of the heater hoses, while the flush worked for the radiator, I did not notice that the dipstick on the transmission was NOT seated...

There is no simple fix. The water damaged the hydraulic control solenoids and most likely burned the clutches. I am sorry to say it is time for a rebuild.

Transmission clunks when shifting, already had it replaced twice

Did you check the coupling between the drive shaft and the tranny for wear? (universal joint)

Have someone in the car and lay on ground nearby so you can see the universal joint when they put it in gear. DO NOT lay under car when they put it in gear!
