2k JGC 80k miles and its a v8.

The tranny starts to go haywire when something gets wet. There is no slipping what so ever when its dry out.

When I go to slow down it will try to switch to a gear thats to low and then find the one its looking while bucking inbetween. I can hear a clunking while this is going on as well, from the tranny or somewhere under the truck. The RPM's while race up and down when i try to drive normal. This has happened twice and the day after it rains its back to normal. No engine light goes on or anything


Does anyone know what might cause this?

Thanks..

Stupid electronic trannys.. I dont know crap about them ... I would bring it to a tranny shop and get it checked out.. Most shops will give you a free inspection..

Agreed...me too. I know little to nothing about the electronics in the tranny's. However, I can tell you that one of my Dodge Ram HO-CTD trucks would do weird stuff in the rain like that too. Specifically I'd lose my gauges for a second...then back they came. I share that because there are booted connections somewhat exposed in the undercarriage that a little clean up and dielectric grease solved. The Cummins diesel specialist that works on the trucks knew exactly what it was. It hasn't acted up since...and that's been over a year ago now. It might be something as simple as that.

Just takin' a stab at it with something that might be an easy fix. Wink

Thanks for the replies. Took it to the shop. They did a comp read out and was getting some weirs codes. Ended up being there was plenty voltage going into the comp but not enoung comming out and causing all the problems. Looks like the water shorted something. New comp is in now and everythings running good.
