    I've got a problem with the transmission. In 1st gear it's okay. From 1st to second it slips. There's no overdrive at all. Should I just change the fluid and filter? Or is there a solanoid that needs to be replaced? Any help would be much appreciated.

    So my truck has been a plethora of problems since I got it. First I had to have the engine rebuilt because of damaged pistons, then it needed to be tuned because it was bored out and the PCM wasn't allowing enough fuel. While it was being tuned the transmission gave out. Now I rebuilt the...
