No modulator on the 4T80E. Check your cooler line hoses that go to the radiator...they will "weep" fluid, and not drip anywhere.

Obviously something is not right. Definitely sounds like a trans problem, but you really need to have it scanned for codes to see what might be amiss. You will likely need to take it to a shop for...

The MLPS(manual lever position switch), or "internal mode switch" is internal to the trans...it's inside the trans pan. There have been issues with them. Really need someone to do a little deeper...

I'll check my info/charts tomorrow and see what ratios were available. I can bet you that there was more than just the 3.33 for the Cadillacs.

IF the trans has been swapped, chances are it has the wrong gear ratio, and THAT is what is setting the code. The incorrect ratio will not have the right 4th gear ratio in lock-up that the ECM is...

It will NOT set any codes while in Diag mode, regardless of whether or not the converter clutch is working. There are specific parameters for setting the code(s), and just because you may feel the...

Possibly the shifter cable itself is binding. When really cold, the outer sheathing can contract, and cause the inner cable to drag/bind somewhat.
Best way to determine if it is the cable, or...

Most likely it is the rubber seals inside the trans are hard. When cold they contract, and will not seal pressure to the clutch packs. Once the fluid gets warm, it softens the seals somewhat, and...

You need to pull codes before figuring out where to go first. Codes will normally put you on the right track. A 1-2-neutral can certainly be a shift solenoid problem. It's possible that the trans is...

In that case, it's probably not a major issue. Is it something that you can actually feel when it makes the noise, or just an audible click?
Does the car have a rear view camera?

Depends on the severity of the noise. Some noise might be considered "normal" for a vehicle with a fair amount of mileage. Does the car drive/shift ok, with no noises on take-off or when turning...

I've been out of pocket for a while, so I haven't been around. 3 different trannys doing the same thing eliminates the trans itself as the cause of the problem. What you have, from what I read here,...
