Question about 2000 GMC Jimmy
I have a 95 GMC Seirra 4x4 that has a crate tranny with only 8000 miles on it. The warranty has expired due to it was only 3 years. I do not drive the truck very often, or abuse in the least, and do not even have a tow hitch. Heres my problem. The tranny started to slip a little going into 3rd. Problem got worse during a 10 mile drive or so. I checked fluid, it was low about a quart and a half. Figured that would solve problem, no. While shifting from 2nd, the truck seems to go into nuetral, if I give the gas a couple of heavy revs at speed, I do grab 3rd, and third holds steady but will not go into over drive. I find it hard to believe that just a quart and half low could do so much damage on a 8000 mile create tranny, but my luck it did. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. John...
Hey john. ya..funny chev trannys. try idling it , selecting every gear, pausing for 2 seconds at each selection. make note of where the fluid is going? make note if it is happening while hot or cold.
Also change the fluid and screen or filter. they do make some metal and that could also be a cause. good luck!
