Tranny issue; Gov sensor/solenoid or???

Ever since I've owned my 5.9 I've had a weird issue during full throttle 1-2 upshifts where the transmission wont shift quick enough to keep the engine from hitting the fuel cutoff/rev limiter so it bucks and sputters, this is a different sputter than the "less than 1/4 tank around corners" fuel starvation issue tho. Up until now I've just dealt with it and either dont give it full throttle or I just back off a bit right before redline then hammer it back down and I'm fine on the 2-3 shift and into O/D. I'm not getting any codes, the tranny doesnt "hunt" gears at partial throttle and the fluid was changed like 10k ago and looks/smells good so I'm wondering if its still possibly a gov sensor/solenoid issue or if I should be looking elsewhere?


Needs parts?

I think a little tweeking with that throttle cable and you'd be golden . IIRC , move it a notch or 2 back for quicker shifting .

Yea, I forgot to mention I've tried that, both loosened it up till it was shifting really early up and down as well as tightened so every gear banged even at part throttle and it was annoying to drive. I'm honestly at a loss since the setting I have it at now results in firm but not rough up/downshifts and the tranny shifts great everywhere except full throttle on the 1-2

You need to adjust the bands.

if it's not throwing any codes, then it's probably not the Pressure Sensor and/or Solenoid. Sounds like your bands need adjusted.

don't be afraid to put the "fun" in "dis-functional"
