Transmission Problems with Remco Pump?
I am towing a 2003 Suburban 2WD, automatic trans with a REMCO auxiliary lubrication pump. I towed the 'Burb' for about 15-20,000 miles when I started to hear low gear noise. My trans guy (who I trust) said a 1st gear bearing had failed. Since I had about 115,000 miles on the transmission, I accepted it as a natural part of wear and tear, and had the transmission rebulit. Now, 20,000 miles later I'm hearing the same noise and plan to have the transmission inspected for the cause this week. My mechanic says he'll be able to tell if it is a lack of lubrication, or a defective bearing. I have a suspicion it is deja vous all over again and the Remco pump is the cause
My question is, before I get into this with Remco, has anyone else had similar problems towing a large 2WD vehicle with a Remco aux pump?
