When I did my shift kit a trans tune and a small ppe tune were put in. It wouldnt shift correctly at wide open throttle because of fuel issues. Took it all out. Now I noticed that when cold it shifts fine till 5th then the converter locks. When it locks it jumps and shudders. It dont feel right. Once warmed up it shifts fine. Is this normal? Im really picky. I just dont wanta be hurting anything. thanks.

The converter will not lock until the trans is at least 73 degrees.

When you first start out for the day set your DIC to trans temp and monitor it. Let me know if it shudders when you are cruising and the temp hits around 75 degrees.

Makw sure your trans is cold when you check.

LBZ's dont have the trans temp on the DIC, so thats going to be difficult.

the OBS trucks have a needle gauge for the trans temp..

It did it to me this morning. It shifted into fifth then when the torque converter went to lock its like locked unlocked and then locked up. I know it sounds weird. Its proley just me. Once it warms up its fine.
