Torque converter judder. Previous repair facility (non- franchise, privately owned) replaced tires, axles, 2 engine mounts chasing a “vibration on acceleration” concern...

...While driving the car with the computer linked, when the car is doing what the customer is concerned about, I can hit the “trigger” and the computer records all the data for the transmission. When I get back to the shop, I can configure all the sensor readings I want to see, convert it into line graph form, and voila! You have squiggly lines that represent what the customer is describing. Which also confirm that the problem is isolated inside of the torque converter.

14 Sierra. My mistake actually, I put a radiator in and didn’t get a cooler hose seated all the way. I cooked the tranny on a test drive....

I wish I had realized what happened. But I didn’t until it started slipping and it burnt up quick. I’ve seen these things towed in bone dry. we usually just fill them up and ship it. I didn’t get so lucky though. Yeah free rebuilds

Transmission is falling out. 8 of 12 bolts missing and the only ones it has are at the bottom. Clutch pedal wouldn’t always return or go into gear every time. Clutch looks newer so probably didn’t get tightened it improperly tightened when reinstalled trans. Cummins ISX with 10 speed behind it.
