In the hills of NC. & north Ga. seems to run out of grunt in moderate pulls. Steep hills just hard-2nd gear 25-30mph.The specs i've looked at say it has more HP. & torque than diesel same year but not showing that. I'm willing to spend $? to improve this problem.

Has this been a problem since you had truck? or just started? truck might have a gear ratio not suited for the pulling you do.

Transmition does not ingage when cold after a few min its ok

The trans fluid cooler(s) are draining back into the pan when the truck is parked. Depending on the year of your truck and which engine you have, there may be an updated cooler line with an improved check valve but on the older diesels (2 gen) we remove them anyway. After you start the engine, shift the trans into neutral and let it build pressure before you put it in drive (or anything else). It won't build pressure in park and if you put it in gear before there is pressure, it will wear the clutch material.

My 2004 nissan altima transmission went out but the transmission has never slip out of gear at all

What transmission is this? AOD, AODE, 4R70W? Did you use the right fluid? AOD/AODE uses Mercon (although with a full fluid flush you can use Mercon-V with a ****** oil cooler), and the 4R70W uses Mercon-V. Do you have a ****** oil cooler? Why'd you have to use conditioner? Nothing should be in your ****** lubrication system other than Mercon or Mercon-V. -- charlie "There's no such thing as too much torque"

Im looking at a 1994 f350 dually with the 460..its a five sppeed..i need it to pull my cow trailer..can i get 12 mpg pulling?? also, what do you think about this motor and set up in general...any help or...

Price is not bad, the motor set up is a great motor. I have never heard of any major problems with it. You will not get 12 mpg unless you are pulling empty on a level surface or a downgrade. A more realistic number will be 8-10 mpg with a loaded trailer at normal speeds. If you travel around 55 on highways you may be able to average 12 depending on conditions. You may also look to make sure it has a transmission cooler and weather or not it has turbo. All of these things will effect your mileage.

As i drive after a while the engine cutts off and the oil light comes on! I have replaced all thd plugs the oil pressure swicth the shut down relay the crank sensor and more! I still cant figure it out?

See list of possible causes shown in specific order below. Repair as required. STEP 1): DRIVEABILITY: Check for possible driveability issue that may cause or contribute to engine stall out. Condition may be caused by crankshaft position sensor (CPS) signal drop out. Suggest use Co-Pilot tool to data record the event. Repair as required. STEP 2): COOLER FLOW: Check trans cooler system flow rate. Trans should be fully warmed up. Use special tool 6906A (trans cooler system flush machine). For directions see MasterTech Reference Book #12 / December 1996 or see instruction sheet included with the tool. COOLER FLOW TEST RESULTS: WITH Aux Cooler: Pressure indicated on the gauge should stabilize below (20) psi. WITHOUT Aux Cooler: Pressure indicated on the gauge should stabilize below (30) psi. Higher pressure indicates cooler system is restricted. Repair as required. May require radiator and/or auxiliary cooler replacement. STEP 3): CIRCUIT WIRING: Check TCC (torque converter clutch) solenoid circuit wiring and connectors. Check for shorts to power or ground or chafing (rub-through). Check circuit wiring inside trans pan area. Repair as required. Check for electrical add-on equipment that may be involved. Remove add-on equipment if required and discuss with owner. If no circuit wiring problems are found replace the TCC solenoid. STEP 4): VALVEBODY: Remove and inspect valvebody assembly for stuck valves / cracks / damage / uneven mating surfaces / loose retaining screws / other. Check all mating surfaces with a precision straight edge tool. Clean and recondition valvebody assembly as required. Torque all screws to proper specification. Replace valvebody assembly if necessary. STEP 5): PUMP ASSEMBLY: Replace trans pump assembly / input shaft / seal rings / torque converter.

Hope this helps.
