ID:	62319 got this thing in trade 213000 miles
    dirty as fuck inside, been in front end collision 8 years ago and was repainted so it
    looks clean outside and no rust underneath

    truck had rebuilt transmission and new transfer case put in 1000 miles ago
    i put in upgraded steering box and steering linkage


    when i got it. it had tps and fan clutch problems i pout in new TPS (apps) and fan clutch and that got rid of the codes. but seems like napa fan clutch is shit and stays engaged all the time even w/o a/c running (changed transducer on ac compressor no change. it actually threw p0533). waiting on temp sensor to come in maybe that's the issue for the fan stay engaged
    still throw P0480

    the bigger issue i got it feels like it doesn't have 4th gear or not going to overdrive
    @ 50MPH im at 2000 rpm not sure if that's normal, to me seems high

    the other day when i reversed out of long driveway and started to move forward, it didn't want to shift out of first till i reached high rpm and was holding gear /draggin

    when i pulled over and restarted the truck all was back to normal (still running 2000rpm at 50ish)

    didnt get the chance to plug the scanner to see if there any other codes related to tranny




    would bad speed sensor do this kind of sh!t ? i dont think the tranny is bad it feels more like electronic issue

    its my first cummins and i dont know sh!t about them

    Sounds like either a bad fluid pressure governor or torque converter failing. The FPG can fail and not allow the torque converter to lock, raising the trans temp and engaging the fan clutch near-constant. Running like this too long will wear out the TC, and it will eventually need replacement as well (if not already).
    Mrs CSR said I was good, or something.

        i think the shifting is related to the shifter , sometimes it goes crazy when im switching from R back to P and back to D

        i got another issue ,i failed emission opacity test with limit 20 i blew 54

        i know truck have 150hp injector and 100HP diablo tuner puck. it smokes when you step on it but clears once turbo spools

        i just got some fuel stuff to put in the fuel to see if i get any improvement
        another option is stock tune and stock injectors or
        Smarty programer that have "1/2 power" tune but that's 600$ thats third of injectors price

        anybody have experience with smarty?is it worth to try or wasted money

          U will probably never clean up 150hp injectors, well maybe a real good efi live tune? All the programers fuel heavy down low so they dont help. Even with a new cam, smarty and twins mine with 150hp injectors still puffs down the road.

          I have a four seasons fan and it works but check the harness above the frame rail. Mine was crushed under the body mount from the factory.

            Make sure to check all the injector lines under the valve cover. Also (and I have no idea how to do this) make sure the injectors themselves aren't leaking. I swear everyone I know with a 5.9 common rail has had issues with one or both of these issues. Which can cause major damage if not fixed.

            Oh and swap in a real trans

              Bought a '04 48RE with 165k that had wierd/wouldn't shift. Was an easy fix with a $30 speed sensor.

              Otherwise, any 1st gear issue I've encountered was fixed by adjusting the band (external bolt). Under the shift linkage. Loosen the nut, crank the bolt all the was down, back it off 3/4 turn, set the nut back.

              Also, theres a wiring harness that goes over the top of the bell that can chafe (atleast on my 5600 truck). Make sure they didnt pinch a wire or something dumb when they R&R the trans.

              If you vote blue, fuck you.

                Thanks guys, good to know you saved me 600$

                metro fuel injection have set for 1400$ shipped im going to get new connector tubes and i guess 6.7 tubes are the ones to get

                ill check the wiring harness as i got some wonky shit going on


                are there 2 temp sensors ?
                napa have listed one for gauge switch and other one doesn't say

                ether way the sensor have different connector

                    was the speed sensor on rear axle or transmission?

                    he said he had the tranny rebuild and when he put it in he had same issue as before

                        I'm 99.9% sure its NOT 3/4 turn out! closer to around 2 turns back out. 3/4 turn likely will result in a burned up trans.

                          weird thing is, the transmission works now and i can cruise at 1500 rpm doing 50Mph
                          idk if it was the disconnected battery or what LOL

                          either way im going to buy 2 sensors that are in the tranny, transducer and governor pressure.
                          i thinlk there is problem
                          when i try to shift into 2 or 1 it doesn't show the indicator on the dash






                          after test drive i was pulling out of my shop and steering linkage broke
                          truck came with new linkage so i was back on the road after couple hours
