Transmission or torque converter noise?
When the transmission shifts form first to second, I get after a slight delay, for a half to one second or so groaning / resonance like noise.
Its more pronounced and noticeable when the engine/tranny are cold.
Could it be the torque converter?
Has anyone here experienced this?
Recently changed the filter, transmission, and torque converter fluid to fully synthetic dextron VI.
