Hey guys. New member needs help!
Im somewhat new at this forum ive spent most of my time soaking up as much info as possible but i cannot for the life of me diagnose a problem lately. About a month ago my truck was hitting almost like a rev limiter when accelerating only at about 3k out of nowhere. Occasionally it would go through the gears with no problems but rarely.
Because of a lack of money i just ran it but kept it below 3 grand. After a recent Oil change the problem seems to have gotten better to a point. Now instead of 3k it makes it to about 4,400 rpm then hits the "rev limiter".
when it hits the point my rpms bounce and the truck bucks and lunges like crazy. Ive heard cam syncro but it just doesnt seem to fit the bill. because this is the only problem no ideling or any other issues.
On my scan tool under the transmission monitors the gear indicator would go straight from 1st to 3rd skipping second. which i thought was odd.
I just want see what you guys thought. A kind of second opinion before i start digging in and buyin parts.
Thank you for any help.
