Happens to us too!!!
Second time in two weeks my tremec is out
Issued started about 2 months ago, usually on a hot soak restart, can't pull put of gear, have to violently jerk the shifter in order to get out
At first only happened rarely, than more and more,
Pulled the transmission and did the cleaning and grease, replace the six bolts, replace a shift plate, nothing, if anything got worst, now started to do while driving
Replace hurst shifter, nothing, same
Star at Chrysler no clue, tremec " it's the clutch"
How can it be the clutch, shifts perfect, never grinds, never a hints of an issue until it does it, no unusual feeling of any sort
Shop foreman pulls the trans, meticulously disassembles, not a friggin thing to be found.........
Can't find a dam thing wrong, fluid is perfect, synchros, shift mechanism, nothing, detent, bearings, nothing, the guts are so perfect a brand new one probably doesn't look any better
Shop foreman, transmission specialist, field service engineer, cannot find a thing wrong,
New transmission will be here Tuesday, can't wait to get the car back
Was so pissed at this thing, was that closed to going home with a brand new jazz blue srt, still not sure why I didn't do it
Happens to us too, we have issues too and go thru the nightmares too!!!
