Yessir... where did you get the transmission from (essentially was it new or was it a donor?) also, did your mechanic change the exterior sensors?

Did you take it back to the transmission shop?

Didn't take back to shop. Final price was way over eat. and not happy with shop as he didn't finish job. And I am sure HE didn't change any sensors .Hoping this an easy fix.

Also WS a used tranny


What's the transmission code, most of the time the range sensors are a breeze to change; there are a few that I would refer to as being a "fun filled journey" to deal with.

Tranny code 5R55S


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D8DAnlHCffI The sensors are about 65-80 new and you're going to need a 10mm socket. it's is a tiny bit complicated (only because the tranny is still in the truck), but it WAAAAAAY easier than other jobs. Good luck!
