Title:

EATON 13 speed chatter/excessive noise

Text:

I have a 13 speed reman that came in my 2012 fitzgerald glider that picked up a vibration under heavy load mostly on take off on an incline, at 34000 miles.I have 85000 on truck now and it has now started to have chatter/noise and alot of movement in shifter. While under max throttle it is worse, doesn't matter loaded or empty.

It only does it after 100 or so miles into a run usually and then it just gets worse also doesn't shift as smooth and wants to bite each shift even when double clutching. The strange part is after it sits overnight it starts out fine then after an hour or two running it does it all over again. Also after I do PM service it is as smooth as new for sometimes a couple thousand miles!

I would greatly appreciate any help I'm about out of warranty and every shop is afraid of it being a glider.
