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.

How do you adjust the shift cable on a 1995 gmc jimmy, wont go into reverse or park.


On the 1995 Jimmy, the shift cable can come loose on the mount on the side of the transmission where the cable meets the trans. When it slips, the alignment goes off and causes the driver to not be able to put the trans into park. If you take a long stick you can push the shift arm on the trans to the park position and your trans will go into park.....what you (and I) really need to know is how to take the shift cable mount apart and reset it.

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.

2001 jimmy stuck in 4wd low


Usually when a truck gets stuck in 4 low you need to put it in reverse, start backing up very slowly, put it in neutral (or push in the clutch on manual trans models) and stop the truck with the brakes. this will release the load on the gearing which should allow you to shift out of 4 low.
