    Stuck in 3rd gear

    Well my truck got stuck in 3rd gear again today. I was stopped and from take off it was bogging and it was stuck in 3rd. I pedaled it and wouldn't comeout for about 1/2 a mile. As soon as it came out engine reved up all the way slammed into 1st then chirped the tires and off I went. All the other times it got stuck in 3rd happened when I was accelerating and it just wouldn't shift out of 3rd. A month ago the truck shifted 1st, 2nd, rev all the way, slam into 3rd, break tires loose at 27MPH, rev all the way, then 4th. Whats going on?

    Mine did something like that. I was on the max tune and getting on the freeway uphill and real hard on the throtle. I hit about 70 in 3rd and it just kept pulling in i think 3rd. got real off the throttle and it finally shifted to 4th when i dropped to about 55. Got up to about 5500 or 6000 RPM. A bit scary in a diesel.

    Only happened once. Hope it doesnt have additional problems.

    My truck has done that a few time also. This time was different. The truck started off in 3rd versus going 1st, 2nd, stuck in 3rd.

    Have you done this? Disconnect the battery to clear memory and let it "re learn" its shift points based on the way you drive.

    Another note to add the truck slips as well and it gets the P1744 code.

    The great thing is that the tech and I went for a test drive and got the tow/haul light to flash twice (reset during test drive). Well he said he would look into it and nothing happened. Well 2 months later me, my dad, and 2 techs go for a drive and light won't come on. They are now saying nothing is wrong with the truck and that I'm lifting my foot on and off of the pedal to make the RPM's surge. Well after the drive my dad was pissed at them because when he drove the truck it started to slip and shutter horribly and he wasn't lifting his foot up and down. What I'm getting at is they called me a liar and called my dad a liar but they don't know they are calling my dad a liar.
