Question about 2000 GMC Jimmy

1 Answer

Transmission - no reverse

I have a 2001 GMC Jimmy that will not move in Reverse. It does't sound like it's even transferring into Reverse gear when I shift into it. Also noticed a slight whining sound in all Drive gears. I checked the transmission fluid and the color and level are fine. I tried Reverse in 4WD as well with no luck.

I have a 2001 GMC Jimmy, reverse went out. I have some forward gears, but it is shifting very hard and the gears are winding out too far.


May be some shift solenoids issue. Do you have a service engine light on? If so that will tell what solenoids may be faulty. The shift solenoids are inside the transmission pan and bolted to the bottom of the valve body.

My jimmy won't shift into high gear or reverse, it just revs up. Other gears still work. This came on supers suddenly, drove it somewhere and it was fine, then when drove about 10 miles towards home, it...


Does it also hold first gear longer that it should and then shift right from 1st to 3rd? It sounds like you broke the sun shell in the transmission. The trans will need to replaced or rebuilt.

My 2001 GMC Jimmy 4x4 Automatic with 84K miles. It winds when I put it in reverse and I think I only have 1st and 2nd gear. Additionally it revs high, like over 3000 rpm, delays and then eventually...


It winds up in 1st and then shifts right from 1st into 3rd. Then never shifts into 4th. Plus rev is gone. You broke the sun shell. The transmission will need to rebuilt or replaced.

1997 GMC Jimmy, Won't go into reverse,but all other gears work,ok.


Check the automatic transmission fluid color.

It should be lite pink and there is ZERO odor of burn friction material.

TOP OFF is it's low on ATF

=====

Have some one the check on the reverse light when you put the truck into the reverse gear.

NO reverse lights then the neutral safety is falling.

=====

Check for free play on the gear lever. Pay close attention on the transmission end.

USE clear to remove excess dirt.

=====

Inspect transmission pan and the floor for ATF leak.

The transmission needs to be serviced and repaired. There is an internal switch or solenoid that has gone bad and needs to be replaced.
