sept987 is on a distinguished road
Default Had 4r44e rebuilt last week and still have issues!

After having the trans rebuilt completely, I still experience a slip from 2nd to 3rd. He said that the bands and everything are spec'd out like the book says, but I saw on here that maybe he should tighten them more? Also when I am driving on the highway and go from 3rd to overdrive, the tranny kinda stalls for a minute and then shifts, leaving me with a blinking o/d light.

I'll get the o/d light scanned and stuff, but am mostly wondering if I should keep the bands spec'd or get it tightened a little more. Any ideas on the o/d is appreciated though.

As always, thanks for your insights.

Im betting he didn't go through the valve body. The 2-3 flare is valve body related. The flashing OD light will have a code, probably a solenoid or the EPC.
