98 chevrolet 1500 c/k shifts hard sometimes from 1 to 2

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.

    My truck shifts hard when going into O.D. I recently had the lower intake replaced do to corrosion. It has been doing this ever sense. My mech told me it was the OD lock up, and that it was internal. Not sure, but I will try the Lucus after complete service. Where is this vacume module located?

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

Sometimes the transmission sets a "hard code" that causes a hard shift from 1-2. Stop by an Auto Parts store that has an OBD scanner and reset any codes. If that doesn't work, change the tranny fluid and filter and try SeaFoam additive.
Good Luck.

Can a 94 chevy cheyenne transmission interchange with a 97 chevy silverado tranmission


Will it physically fit? yes. Will it be a direct replacement any everything hook right up and plug right in? If we are talking about an automatic then no. 1994's wiring was completely different than the 1997. Can it be made to work? possible, but I believe it would be more trouble trying to make it work than if the correct transmission were located and installed. If it is a cost issue where he has a good trans out of a 1994 he might see if a salvage yard will do some partial trading for the correct trans.

98 chevy cheyene 1500 automatic -hard to shift-


Loosen the bolt thats on the trans that holds the linkage on..Some one may have tightened it to much..Or grab a hold of it and see if it is sloppy and moves around..If so its loose inside trans..Another possible cause the linkage from column to trans may be binding up when trying to shift..Hope this helps you and Have A Great Night

Hard Shift 1998 Chevy 1500


Hello;
I need to know the codes so I can properly diagnois your problem. Here are a few tips though. Your electronics inside the transmission may be going out. You should start by changing the fluid and the filter. Let me know if there is a lot of metal or fiber shavings in the pan. Put new fluid in and clear your codes. See how it shifts and then let me know what is going on with it. Hope this helps.
Thanks;
