Ok, just wanted to update this and report back. Water leak was from dipstick tube being broken right above o-ring allowing any rain, road water splash, or AC water leaking into trans. This really sucks because Trans was re-build 1 year ago and failed because of water in trans fluid, shop thought water was from radiator so it was replaced.(though radiator was never tested) 9 months later water in transmission and same shop replaced radiator, again thinking water that water was coming from there. What a waste of time and money! Finally though there is Zero water in trans as of the end of August.(I had to drain and fill the trans many, many times....all with mercon LV)
So, now there is and issue with the transmission not staying in overdrive. (I am sure from water being in trans) I have codes P0700, p0741, p1744 and tow/haul light flashing. All trans shifting is normal and smooth except it does not stay in OD. First start hot or cold, truck get up to about 50-60 and goes into overdrive/torque converter lock up and works for a short period(maybe 2 mins) then drops out and tow/haul light flashes. This happens 100% of the time. Fluid level is normal. Any ideas on where to start?
