RamVan..

A guy in our club has a 2001 Dodge van (5.9L) and he was having the famous TC shutter during the 1-2 shift. He had the converter replaced with a heavy duty unit and all is right with the world again. Rest of the transmission was fine.

make sure to get some touch up paint for it to keep it from rusting.

Thanks, I don't have 1-2 shudder. My shudder is when the TCC disengages during WOT, it doesn't shudder anymore though because I killed the converter though lockup still engages and dissengages. But I know exactly what is wrong with the transmission, I specialize in building these torque flites for performance and heavy duty use. But I used a cheap converter which I knew wasn't the best decision but like I said I only had so much money left.

The broken converter explains why the vehicle doesn't always engine brake and why the vehicle rolls down some hills. Thing is the converter didn't start to whine until recently, but during the time it wasn't whining when the vehicle didn't want to engine brake, I knew that it would be the converter. But anyways, my WOT 1-2 shifts are slightly delayed but that isn't a biggy.

I'm 1 mile from 133K miles!

I think I'm past touch up. Eventually when I am finished fixing all of it's mechanical issues, suspension and steering etc... Then I will cut out the rusted panels, weld in new ones and the rest goes without saying.

The one problem I will have when it comes time for paint, removing all of the custom windows.

Three days.....still no power. BGE (the utility company) said it might take up to the weekend to get everyone turned back on. The house is getting warm and I am on a well so I have no water!!!!! But.....the worst part is my generator isn't strong enough to run my compressor and I am in the middle of doing a lot of bodywork so I can't work on the van right now!!!!!
Yeaaaaaa........just got my power back on (4 days after the storm)!!!!! Looking forward to some A/C (it's 92 degrees inside my house)......AND.....I can fire up the compressor and start back on the van tonight!!!!!! Whoooooi Hooooooooo
