I have just started having a problem with my transmission. The tanny is auto. Its not slipping, it just not shifting propley. I have just done a transmission flush on the truck, It solved the problem for a week or two and then came back. One know what this problem might be? Do these transmissions have a tranny filter? It there any way to clean the transmissions solinoids without removing the transmission? Thanks

They do have a filter and that should normally be changed (or cleaned) with a transmission oil flush (I think there is a filter kit you can buy). As for the solenoids, I may be wrong but most transmission oil flushes are more effective in removing sludge when the oil is warm (i.e. after a drive). Caution must be taken though as the oil will be hot (350 degrees) so wear proper gloves and protective clothing.

with the transmission flush, they didn't change the filter. I need to change it myself. All they did was put in new fluid.
