Default Cold Trans?

Ok new little issue with my truck:
2007 6.7L Diesel with 6 speed auto (68rfe)

First instance: Remote start truck let it run for about 15 minutes. Got in to leave motor was at 150 ish degrees trans was at about 40. Put it in drive let it idle out of parking spot and BAM it hits 3rd gear lockup, I was on my toes and was able to slap it in to neutral. Put it back in gear no problem after.

Second instance: Truck has been running about 10 minutes, two new batteries today. Leave the house again motor is about 150 but this time trans is only at 17 degrees, so I'm being very easy on it. Get to the first stop light about a mile from home now the trans is at about 35 degrees, come to a stop BAM hit again I actually thought someone rear ended me it hit so hard, this time it was on pavement and it actually stalled the truck. Fired right back up no problems.

It's happened twice so far, really cold days (today at -11 and previous time at -15)

Any ideas?

Truck has H & S MiniMaxx tuner and ATS tripple disc torque converter.

Does dodge make the trans in that truck?

Ding, ding, ding... Winner... The only actual thing in the driveline that is.

Problem solved, your welcome.


Sorry, Beef... Had to do it. May want to extend your search outside of here, just saying.

Just a guess but sounds like the TC is locking up when it isn't supposed to.

I hope it is all good...

Trans temp in the Stuporduty shows warm long before engine starts to show heat when it is warming up... Weird that it takes so long for yours to build heat?
