Default 4T65E-HD trans issue

I noticed today as I cruised along the car was lightly bucking/studdering. At one point I swore I smelled trans fluid, by the time I got home it was dark. I checked the trans fluid and it looked full.

Any thoughts as to what to look into? The day before I got stuck in some ice/slush and was giving the trans a work out tryin to rock the car out.

I only drove it for a brief moment last night I brought it home cuz i smelled trans fluid. Best I could describe it for now is, imagine driving a manual trans and being in to high of a gear and tryin to accelerate the car bucks until the engine RPM increases. I'm gonna go back out and double check the fluid and take it for a test drive since I have an idea on what to look for.

Weird, so it did it at low speeds (guessing from the manual trans comparison)? Sounds about right tho, but the bouncing thing usually happens at higher speeds, low RPMs @ partial throttle.

I does it a cruising speeds, not at quick acceleration off the line or 1/2 throttle hits.
I'm gonna got back out for a test drive in a bit and I'll report back.

Roger doger. Sounds EXACTLY like what mine is doing.

I'm still driving mine and HARD at that, so I wouldn't be too worried. And my trans fluid is full, but looks like its been replaced with red mud mixed tiny bits of transmission internals.

YUP! So true. Car drives GREAT when I beat on it and quirky as hell when I'm just driving to the train and back.

In my case, scans show the engine running fine, no misfires. You can see the RPM varying as much as 600RPM +/- when the problem is occurring.

definitely sounds like the typical 65E surging thing. my black car does it too a lil in third and in 4th. drive around with the gear selector in 3 instead of drive... it feels so much better.

the other car has 3.29s, so it has different speeds for everything, but I dont think it is as bad with that car. it has a lot less miles on the trans though.

hope it is nothing serious. check trans fluid and thats about all you can do. keep beating on it

Well I took the car out for a long drive and just putting along arounf 30-45mph the car shudders (plenty of power if you mash pedal) If you get on it out of the hole 50-75% throttle it pulls just fine, the car idles fine and is responsive. Just when driving in traffic do you notice it lunge as it reaches it shift points.

yeah that's pretty much what mine does too. I just kinda adjusted my driving style to limit how much it happens.

Might have gotten some snow on the coils or plug wires when you were trying to rock it out. When I just barely burnt through one of the plug wires I would get a surging, bucking in overdrive when the TCC locked up.
