Ok it sounds like you guys know your stuff. Paying to get this fixed isn't the problem. Getting it fixed and not getting ripped off is something else. Tdub the mech I was using thought it was the TPS and has a place for me to take the truck and run a diagnosis thoroughly but I can't take it to him till NEXT Saturday as I have been without this truck for too long now. Can I run this truck for a whole week?

And what about coils? is that another option for the problem or am I way off?
Josh does your computer only work when th eengine light is on or can it diagnose without that light?

SO I take the tranny to get rebuilt and have a shift kit installed. 1 month of dicking around putting it in taking taking it out puting it back in I have finally picked it back up and the mechanic has told me the tranny is fixed but when I drive it it "feels like" it still slips when I punch it to the floor or give it too much gas. He says it is no longer the tranny but 1 of 2 things - fuel pump or some T...S...P... bla bla thingy part that is causing the "slipping feeling"

Guys I have no idea about mechanics - Am I getting the run around because he couldn't get the tranny properly fixed or is he for real and do any of you know what type of money I am now looking at spending?

I had to take the truck from him coz I need it for work and it has been way too long so I told him I would take it back next weekend but I don't know if I can trust him. PLEASE ADVISE!!!
we also have a 2k f150. a fellow rider that lives in my subdivision has taken care of it for us. he's certified and knows his stuff. pm me your number and i'll give it to him. if he can help (which he should be able to) i'm sure he'll call.

It wouldn't make it feel like it is slipping to me. Those issues would make it feel like you are putting your foot down and the motor does not rev any harder. Lots of times the power will not be there for a second or two and then it will kick in. That could possibly be misinterperted as slipping.

Without driving the car it is hard to tell what is going on.

Good luck,
yea, he is right on track with what I was thinking. And without driving it it is hard to say. Sometimes the "slipping" feeling could just be in a sense "lag time" from power loss.

Jamie,
if it is any of the things I have mentioned it will not hurt the car to drive it for a bit. Bad wires, plugs, injectors, coils, rotor and cap could al also make the engine lag, but it will not make it feel like it is slipping.

What you need to do is determine what the problem is. Is your slipping or is your motor lagging.

Would be happy to check it out and let you know what I think free of charge. (regardless of who you decide to have help you fix it).
I am in the midtown area.

Jamie, who did the tranny rebuild? My girl spent 500 to some dumbass redneck off of 45 between here and Dallas when her 03 Civic crapped out. Guy swore it was the torque convertor, held her car for 4 days, replaced the torque converter and then it didn't work. She filed a complaint with her CC company, disputed it, had another reputable tranny guy write a letter to the CC company explaining the correct diagnosis. The redneck guy finally "settled" with the CC company and got 1/2 his money. Not exactly getting everything back, but better than to be totally f*cked.

tduby - pm sent.

Dbuck - I hear what your saying but I paid cash and it was to a guy I know but he didn't do the tranny work - he just took it out and re-installed it so I am kind of screwed. The mech has done my brakes and other stuff b4 and after parts has only billed me like $20-$50 for labor so he has been good to me in the past but this episode has just gone on too long!

For everyone who has been helping.....
I took a drive in it...here is what it does...
As long as you drive nice and easy everything feels fine. When you stomp on it the motor will rev up to about 3k and hang out with no real acceleration and somewhat of a whirring feel/noice from tranny. Motor idles nicely and revs strongly in park. Feels like it makes plenty of power.
My guess is that it is a torque converter issue. I assume that with any major transmission work the torque converter should also be replaced. At the price FlyingScott paid for the rebuilt transmission I see no way that a new torque converter was included.
Feel free to chime in.

Scot, which area are you? Also, is there a light either on the shifter or in the dash that either lights up solid or starts blinking when the problem occurs?? send m e a PM if you still need help.

I would say do this first:

Disconnect the battery for about 5 minutes, then, using a jumper or something suitable, connect both battery terminals together (the terminals, not the battery posts ) for two minutes, then reconnect everything and test drive the truck untill the problem occurs, then ahve someone (I could do it, i got an genisys scanner, but i live by spring) pull the codes and then PM the code, then i would be able to tell you the most likely cause of the problem.

sounds like the stator in the converter is bad. if you can find a tranny shop or someone from a tranny shop that will deal with you on the side a new dayco is only about $50 bucks or so. also theres a place in h-town called transtar i think they deal with the public, their reasonable also.
