Question about 1998 Chevrolet C1500
I have a 1998 chevy 1500 c/k cheyenne. it has about 189,000 on it and once the transmission gets warmed up it will shift hard from 1 to 2 a few times. once it is killed and restarted it will quit most of the time and then i can drive it for a while and it may or maynot shift hard. please let me know of any suggestions that might help.
Don't get too frustrated jeremy it's not real bad , all you need is a simple tune-up and / or flush . it sounds like a slight issue with the vaccuum in which your getting less than normal as it starts getting warm. old fluid , slight leak at the pan or the output shaft seal , inthe back of tranny at the drive shaft , or aleak in the vaccuum line that goes in to the side of your trans. you have a vaccuum operated valve called a modulator valve that controls the firmness of your shift.less vaccuum the harder the shift. a simple flush and tune will most likely fix your problem. just give her a little finness every once in a while and she wont let you down... she'll be loyal , and if she don't , take her to a ford dealership and drop her off and leave her i a new ford truck. no dont do that just getting into more problems doing that. use a full synthetic fluid to put back into your tranny , depending on your budget of course, bring the shop some lucus or royal purple synthetic fluid to go back in it. good luck
