check the CDL, sounds like the shifter is going into neutral
Thanks lambo. That may be why it won't shift into 4 Lo at all. The TC won't won't budge. I did decide to have a guy test drive the thing with me and he thinks it could be a combination of diff. things. Though, I end up calling up the original garage, that the original work was done, and they say it was shifting before because they test all of their labor before releasing the vehicle to the owner. SO, He doubts it would end up being something on their end. This is probably the last time I take to a general automotive shop. It may of possibly freezed up again since that time but the TC I had put in barely has over 1,000 mil.. since it was installed. (it had 93,000 miles prior). Put I'll have them look under again and hopefully, have it still covered under their warranty.
Second issue is: what I've feared the most and that there is going to have to be some Tranny work done. It shifts from 1-2 fine, 2-3 okay and but struggles to down shift , until you let up on the gas. Also, I'll probably have to replace the Tranny bar-lift at the bottom.
Which, brings me to a new dilema. I have a recall at the only Landrover dealership in my paticular state, to have the gas tank replaced. So, I'll probably end up taking a road trip up there and having do the recall and then, request transmission and a general inspection. Which, I heard it costs atleast $35-to couple hundred to tap into my vehicles computer. Though, I've read of people taking it to a local mechanic and be able to do it for free.
So, I have a choice. Either, Get the Transfer case atleast fix and just sell the vehicle as it is for $2,500 or the other option, Put in $1500-2200 worth of tranny work (whether, having my Tranny rebuild or just buying a used one on E-bay) and get 10-14 more years out of the vehicle.
The Truck is in good shape otherwise. Very little rust, some paint wear (not severe-guy at general store thought it came from the west coast) and some other electric issues but has under 100k and the engine runs great, just needs another simple oil change.
So, what would you guys do?
