Your mechanic knows better than I do because he saw the truck and knows the codes. You did not give me anything to go on. Post the trouble codes if you have them. I am not sure how the timing chain relates to a transmission problem! Get a second opinion before laying out the money.

got the codes: P000B and P0016 got a second opinion.... the dealership said its a bad oil control valve. I hope they are correct because way cheaper. interested in your thoughts...
