I do have great news to report. A recommended mechanic in the area was able to get all the shorted modules replaced and the truck is still alive and well!!

Since the modules were replaced, the starter has gone out and replaced. For those yet to need a new starter, remove the inner right front tire and underside, makes a huge difference.

However, I do still have some remaining water in the tranny. I have dropped the pan, replaced the filter, and exchanged the 8 qts. Still is milky. So my questions to you folks is what is best NEXT step. I was planning on continue to replace 8 Qts at a time until it completely flushed out the water, but i scheduled a flush at the dealer later today thinking it would be a step in the right direction for $229.

However, the more I read on here about the cold flushes at the dealers, is that it is no better than my plan A of draining 8 QTs at a time myself.

Can someone please advise, because I need to get the fluid back to normal ASAP.

unless they have a heated machine for the flush, it would be no better than you are currently doing.
