Trouble getting into second while cold - 94 xlt

M

Myles

Hello everybody,

First of all I would like to thank everybody who helped me with the 'milky rad question', problem is solved.

It seems my truck is having problems getting into second, but only when the tranny is cold. There is no slipping and the fluid level is fine, but not as red as I would like to see. I can manually put it into second with ease, and again manually put it into D or OD then the tranny will work fine for the rest of the drive. But after work, the same problem happens and the only way to get rid of it is to drive for about 20km manually switch the gears first,second and then into drive or OD then it works fine for the rest of the drive.

Any suggestions?

Sounds like a sticking governor in the transmission.

Hello There,

I brought the truck in for servicing and now they are tring to tell me that there is no second gear. They are saying that the tranny is switching form first to third. I know for a FACT that the second gear is fine. I am picking it up tonight and I am going to take out the governor clean it up and or replace it and see what happens. Have you ever heard of such and occurance? Is there any thing that I should look for? If the second gear is somehow screwed, HIGHLY DOUBTFULL, what harm could I do to the tranny?

I would also like to know how to get to the speed governor to clean it. I know it is in the tail shaft housing but how do I get to that point. I would appreciate any help. Thanks!
