47RE Transmission Shift Problems

So a week ago I changed the tranny filter and adjusted the front and rear bands and replaced a cracked line heading to the oil cooler, replaced the 6 1/2qts of fluid drained and everything seemed great.

The problem on my '02 47RE is that it starts out fine and after a few minutes the shifting becomes delayed and a little erratic 1st to second will sometimes delay up to 2000rpm! 2nd to third will do the same thing.

I've played with the front band anywhere from loosening the screw 1.5 to 3 turns from being torqued the 72 in pounds.

I've done my reading around on this transmission and this same problem, but I've come here to see what you guys think because I'd really like to get this issue resolved asap.

Thanks guys!

If it is not slipping or overheating, what is the problem?

Just a guess, check the app's voltage.

What the problem is it that erratic and delayed high rpm shifts are not normal are they?

App's voltage?

Could be a govenor pressure sensor or solenoid going bad.

But, before you do anything elese, clean ALL of the grounds. Both ends of the battery cables and the ECM and PCM grounds too.

See I started thinking the same thing bmoeller after talking to a transmission shop. Never thought to clean grounds though.

I had the same problem on my 99. But mine only did it a few times then wouldnt shift out of first at all. It ended up being the valve body.

Is it possible that the torque converter or any other part is air locked? I'm not seeing any codes show up.

I couldn't get mine to shift out of 1st either. The gov pressure sensor and solenoid were both bad in my stock tranny.

One of the 2 requires dropping the valvebody out of the case. Both cost ~$100/ea.

Was informed that the torque converter could not be locked up just dropping the trans pan. No codes on the dash turning over the key three times for that scan. Would you need an actual code scanner to find a code or anything that wont show up on that built in scan? Could pay $40 for a shop to diagnose the problem, just dont want them ruining all that synthetic thats in there. Not saying that they wouldnt replace it with the same, but I'd like to keep my brand. How would it be that something could get damaged or go bad just dropping the pan changing the filter and adjusting the bands? I know the bands are real finicky.
