Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

well like i said its the upshit solenoid so i was told by the transmission guy at the local diesel shop i haven't yet taken it apart myself but ill try and get pictures when i rebuild the tranny to show the prob. and let yall know how i fixed it. whats going on now is it will start and idle great, when i put it in drive it starts to pull but if i slam the gas it bog's out and barely runs also has real trouble accelerating especially up hill, if i ease into the gas sometimes it will get up to 60 65 ish but its still sluggish
