It's been a while since i've been on the forums, which means nothing's broken in a while. Lately though on my 03 4.0 with 3.55 rears when i'm at a red light i can occasionally feel my transmission "engaging" sometimes it's real slight and can barely be felt and sometimes the whole truck bucks a little and the rpms drop. The tranny fluid was flushed at 60,000 and currently has 120,000 on it. My tranny temp has run steady at 175 since the truck was new and she still shifts buttery smooth. Anybody have any experience with this issue or this tranny? My mechanical knowledge stops at automatic transmissions and I don't want to bring it to a tranny shop and get bent over/ have them cause a real problem. Thanks in advance for all the help.
