E40D line pressure check

Hi, I'm having a problem with my E40D (big suprise huh). Reverse engages fine, but sometimes (not always) when I shift into D the truck just revs up and will eventually start pulling. If I shift it down into 1 when this is happening it will engage and go.

I know that 1 runs a higher line pressure than D does, so I am assuming that maybe the line pressures are low. I found this on the web and was wondering how I could check my pressures?

At idle,
P.55-65
R.75-99
N.55-65
D.55-65
2.55-65
1.75-99

If I do find line pressures low, does that mean that the pump is bad? I had a new Torque converter and a shift kit installed a few months back. Could this be something caused from that?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm getting ready for a trip pulling my 5'r for the first time and don't want any issues because of the junk E40D. Thanks in advance.

If line is low in every position, then it probably is the pump. If it is fine in some and low in others you have leakage in the circuits that are pressurized when the pressures are low.

Well that kinda makes since to me. Reverse engages very well and pulls very well. When I shift into D I never really feel it engage like it does in Reverse.

When I had the shift kit installed, I wonder if maybe the tranny guy didn't get the valve body tight and sealed properly.

He had a computer that he hooked up when I first took it in and it would read the line pressures, the shift commands and many other things. I is a really nice computer. I think I will take it by there on tuesday and have him hook it back up and drive it down the road and see what we find.

This didn't start happening till he worked on it. If the pressures were low, shouldn't it be setting a DTC?

Thanks for all the responses and the help. This forum is got to be the best on the web.

The PCM doesn't know what line pressure is. It only knows what it tells the pressure control solenoid to set line pressure at. It could be commanding 200 PSI and you may only get 50 PSI and the PCM won't know that.

If you take that chart and compare line pressure in the computer it will be right every single time, whether or not line pressure is correct or not.

Which cooler do you mean? Are you talking about the cooler in front of the radiator? If so, its the same one that was on there when I got the truck.

Thanks.

The transmission cooler near the radiator. It should have been replaced when the other work was done. If it was a internal trans cooler (in radiator) tubes should have been pulled and a external high effeciency cooler tied to the tubes. Then bull plug the ones at the radiator.

Fines can get trap in there and recirculate back to the pump and valves. There is no way to clean them right.

The pressure in the cooler lines should be around 15-30 PSI.

Line pressure is a name for a specific pressure in the transmission. Line pressure isn't found in the cooler lines.
