    I have the same problem. I was told that the reverse goes and the second gear and over drive that need to be fixed or rebuilt and something about the shell. Mine just went out and it only had 92,000 miles I have heard people say thats about right or that it is a little early. I have been reading about the complaints to GM how sad and we end up having to pay out.

Once reverse is no longer working the transmission usually needs a total rebuild. If it was one of the forward gears only, it would be a different problem, maybe one of the electronic solenoids. I had this problem on my 2000 Blazer and went through all the motions. So I talk from experience, and had to replace the transmission. Good luck!

hi check the colour of your transmission fliud is it should a medium red if it looks dirty brown or any other colour that would suggust your clutchs are slipping if your transmission fluid is low or over filled it will cause your problem you can drain your fluid remove your lower sump pan clean the boxes main body and filter replace the oil and try there is no gaurentee it will work but this is a basic you can do and these type of repair can resolve your problem if the fliud is brown then this and an adjustment of of the boxes clutchs and bands must be done this can be done with the transmission in sitution there are other things that can cause the problem but these are well worth doing first as it will not cost a fortune and has a good chance of success yates210456

While driving it looses power. Will stop car and put in park. Get out and check basics Oil etc and ok. Restart car no problem. Put in drive wont go. Put in reverse will go. Stop, put in park. Put in drive...


Sounds like there's a transmission problem there. Maybe try a transmission flush and fill to see if that solves the problem for about $100. If that doesn't solve the problem a transmission rebuild is probably the way to go to fix the problem.

That procedure is a lot more than the flush and fill, though.

Can we flush the transmission fluid in her GMC 1998 Jimmy?


You dont have to flush the fluid because transmission fluid has detergents in it that will clean the transmission.You need to go ahead and by a transmission filter, its only abou 20 dollars and it will come with the transmission pan gasket. All you need is the filter and fluid and a catch pan and you can do it in your front yard if you want to. I hope that helps you out!
