Just ask them what type of transmission fluid they used or ask to see the decanter or drum. If it says Dextron III then you have a case.

They might tell you anything over the phone. Now some shops will retain the descriptions of the SKU in their point of sale software. It does not mean that they in fact used D3. So this is why you need to know. Let them tell you what they used without you suggesting Transynd.

We sometimes hear about broken studs but warped manifolds isn't a routine problem that may be claimed to be notable. The 454 is a different situation all together however that engine was never installed in a W series.

DriVer, your thoughts on the ticking being relating to a 'PRESSURE LINE LEAKING' as noted by dealer technician?

Perhaps it is the first you heard of it because it simply is not true. The original post started with "I think...." ED

FWIW, I doubt a leaking pressure line makes a clicking sound. That said, I want to tell you what was said by Allison factory reps at a recent seminar: Allison said they would rather see a "catastrophic failure" where all the fluid was lost suddenly, than to have a slow leak. The explaination was that when all fluid is lost suddenly, the tranny will simply stop working and little or no damage is done. However, when a slow leak is allowed to persist, the tranny will continue to try to work with an ever decreasing amount of fluid, resulting in overheating and possible internal damage before it shuts down for lack of lubrication.

If I were you, I'd plan on making lots of frequent stops on level surfaces to check the fluid level (with the motor running and the tranny in "park"). Add as necessary, but get this problem corrected soon, as it won't get any better over time.

RE TranSynd: IF your chassis came with TranSynd as standard, the Dextron III will not HURT it, but you should be adding TS to minimize the effect of having the cheaper stuff put in by mistake. Don't forget to reuse the magnet when you change the external filter at 5,000 miles. ED

Thanks Ed Gray...
I also called allison techs at allison, said IF they did mix the 2, I will be fine-"not a problem at all, but to make ya feel better get full transynd put back in when you take it back-but yer fine"
