Question about 1997 Chevrolet Suburban
Lets hope this is the shift lever will it go in park good? How about neutral does it go in good? and it goes in drive good? You mainly have a internal transmission failure

It could be the linkage. Jiggle the shifter to see if that helps. When it goes in reverse the trans opens other valves to put trans fluid (under pressure) to the reverse unit. If the trans has not had a trans service every 30k or so the fluid could get dirty ans gummey. There are trans additives can claim the desolve the gum. I have donethat before and it has helped my trans. They claim no damage to the trans. - I tried it

Although there is no guarantee, the most likely issue if there are NO other electrical types of 'gremlins' is that over time (both of my /88 Suburbans have over 300K miles on them, so that's a LOT of wiper activations!) the rotation of the wiper shaft has rubbed the insulation off of one or more of the wires in the harness to the point where rotating the arm creates a ground and kills the ignition. You might get lucky and be able to fix it yourself if you're comfortable with the idea of tearing the column down, or you might be money ahead to bite the bullet and take it to a GOOD auto electrical shop, but if you have to go that route, take the time just for giggles and disconnect the wiper motor itself and see if it still happens. If it does continue, you know it's not the motor grounding, but unfortunately if it doesn't you can't be sure if it's the motor unless you place another motor in the circuit (including the ground to the chassis) in it's place.

trannsmission solienoids may be sticking, try some tranx, you can get at the parts store. this stuff is great. it might take a day or two but it works. for the other truck, did you have the front brakes checked, they can bind up, when you back up it frees them up.also, but not probable for 2001 check the brake hoses, they can collapse from the inside, not letting your brakes release all the way good luck
