Alison tranny noise...

My Alison tranny in my 03 Silverado when it automatically up-shifts especially under load such as going uphill my tranny shift will be twice as long from 3rd to 4th or 4th to 5th can't be certain which shift it is but I think its 3rd to 4th. Along with the long shift it makes a noise, like a grating noise. Not loud but you can hear it... any ideas? Thought it may be a broken engine or tranny mount.

Service Manager took it for a rd test on Wed. and said shifting is fine. We came up through the canyon on Sat. and I still heard the noise once or twice. Seems there may be slack in the system. I remember similar slack because of past loose rear u bolts and then worn out shocks. Maybe its a rear u-joint now? crown tooth maybe broken? Sometimes feel slack being taken up when leaving a stoplight or stop sign....

odd shift at exactly 80 km\h!

After I posted this a ways back I now remember the Service manager told me my Allison shifts way better than some and it has "no bands". Since then I notice that odd "sounding\feeling" shift occurs at exactly 80 km\h under load when it automatically shifting up. It has not changed or gotten worse. Sometimes it shifts normal.

Also before this odd shifting in the fall occured I had a problem in the summer where my internal rad tranny cooler was leaking tranny fluid into the rad system. It leaked about 4 liters since that is how much tranny fluid it took to top up my tranny when I noticed it slipping. I fixed that problem and then a month or so later the shifting "sound\feeling" occured. Neighbor said I should change the spin-on-filter on the tranny since it could be clogged with debris from when the slipping initially occured. No coolant never did leak into the tranny fluid. The slipping occured on a slight hill (0.5 km) from my driveway, then it goes downhill after that and once I got to the store I topped it up with the 4 liters.

Sometiumes my tranny feels sluggish off the line but I think thats mainly after start up in the cold morning. Fluid has stayed full since I fixed the tranny cooler. I figured maybe somebody here has some insight into this befoe I drive anoth tranny mechanic crazy with my questions...
