Question about 1997 Chevrolet Venture

1 Answer

Automatic transmission hanging shirt

The auto transmission in my 97 venture has just recently began to slightly hang in gear; when I let off the accel., the AT will then shift. This doesn't happen all the time though. With 170,000 miles, I'm not willing to put more than a few hundred into repair. Does this sound like a full service AT service would be sufficient or would more repair be expected?

I would take it to a shop for service. Change fluid and filter. Might want to add an additive to it but clean fluid should clean it up. My experience is just clean fluid will work most of the time.

Does a 97 ford escort have a clutch in the automatic transmission?

Yes, many. The automatic transmission shifts through gears relatively similar to an manual transmission, except it does the work for you. Kind of like one of the auto shift 10 speed bicycles shifts as you reach the maximum speed for the gear it's in. As opposed to a regular 10 speed bicycle that has to be shifted manually with the lever.

Abrupt gear change of automatic transmission

The shift solenoid in the transmission has a fault with the power train computer or visa versa. A scan of the computer codes will find your fault. Auto Zone will perform a scan free of charge just for asking

97 venture 4 speed electronic transmission not shifting into 4th

4th clutch hub splines are stripped off. GM didn't harden the splines until 2004 or so so the early model gradually wear to the point where they are so thin they strip off - and then, no 4th gear
