I got 230+k out of one, 240+k out of another 4r100, both in trucks that pulled trailers for most of those miles.

I've never heard of anything like a torque lockout sensor. I think it's an engine miss, either a coil or a spark plug.

Do you just change parts on someone's recommendation? Especially someone that hasn't looked at the truck? Don't you think some diagnostics are in order?
