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

SOURCE: 2002 chevrolet suburban won't drive in reverse

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.

I have a 1990 Chevy Suburban 1500 4X4 with a 700r4 and it just will not go in to drive or reverse in 2wheel drive but when in 4wheel drive it moves in drive but it does move at all in reverse. What is...


Transfer case is bad. My first guess. If the transmission were bad it wouldn't move at any position. Is there any noise? You have 4 possibilities, Front and rear differentials, transfer case, and the transmission.

What's your problem?chevy suburban wont reverse its a 454


You will probably need a transmission or have yours rebuild. Probably broken internal component that engages reverse gear.

1997 chevy suburban automatic. has no reverse but drives. gears shift slow jerks while shifting into secound..before this it would lug while driving up hill...


you need a used trans, or a rebuild, but dont let a rebuilder fill you full of ****, all you need is the reverse drum, and possibly some clutches. the teeth on the reverse drum strip off, and thats when you lose reverse.
