Question about 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

2 Answers


I have a 2001 chevy silverado. I checked my fluid level and it is good.
I can put my truck in drive 3,2,1 and it will not go anywhere.
I put my truck into reverse and it will go just fine.
I am wondering what might be the issue is my transmission blown or do i have a sensor that could be bad?

Fisrt gear clutch is burned out , if you push the truck with a car up to 30 mph and drop it into drive you will get 2nd and 3rd , but when you stop you have nothing. if first gear clutch burns up you don't get any forward gears.

SOURCE: i have a 1998 ford

I can't give you a definitive answer but I can give you a couple places to start looking. On the transmission(driver side I believe) there will be a sensor mounted on the side with a cable running to it. This is called the Transmission Range Sensor or also the Neutral Safety Switch. It is possible that this has failed or the transmission shift cable that connects to it is stretched or damaged. Those will be the easiest and possibly the cheapest places to start looking otherwise it could be internal transmission damage such as shift control solenoids,valve body,clutch packs,etc.

just have someone look at it. like aamco or someone that does a free diagnostic. the tranny will probably have to be rebuilt.

My truck turns on but does not move forward

Make sure your transmission fluid is up to level, if it is, put a little bit on your fingers from the dipstick, does it smell burnt? if your unsure rub it between your fingers if it looks more black than red and feels gritty its burnt, try changing fluid and filter if that doesnt help your forward clutches are out, ive had some luck with trans-X in situations like this but its rare that it helps and almost never lasts hope i could help
