I was having noise in my clutch area and I took it to the shop and they told me the transmission was going out of it. Another transmission was put in and they tell me it was a low geared transmission. Now my RPMs are reading 1900 continuously at 70 Miles an hour. And my motor is screaming like they have taken away gears from it. My question is is this normal will it do damage? The shop that put it in are saying it will not do damage.
Now every 200 mile I am having to add approximately 3 gallons of coolant to the radiator. There are no signs of leakage anywhere there are no stripes from the exhaust, there is no moisture under the oil cap, there is no overflow from the radiator reservoir. My other question is could this have blowed a head gasket or drop sleeve in the cylinder. And what other things can I check?

Were they 13 speeds that they took out and installed? It sounds like they took out a 13 double over and put in a 13 single over. I don't think 1900rpm is going to cause any physical damage but your fuel mileage will certainly suffer. That would be a perfect set up for running 55-56mph. What year is this?

It's an O2 Freightliner. I'm not sure what type of transmission they put in it but they did tell me it was a low geared transmission.

If it started going through coolant at the same time they changed the transmission, I'm going to guess that it has something to do with your tranny cooler. It's either leaking externally or pumping coolant into your transmission. Try taking the fill plug out of the side of the transmission and see what comes out. You shouldn't get more than a little oil but if lots comes out or cooland comes out, you found your problem.
