Have u had the trans serviced, if it has more than 60,000 have the fluid and filter changed, use the new Dexron VI fluid, this will cure the issue in many cases, if not u have an internal problem and it will need to be torn down for inspection and repair.

1994 k2500 4x4 wont shift in to 3 and overdrive


This year of GM Transmission doesn't have a vacuum modulator, it is all electronically controlled. And yes a shift solenoid can cause this but that should turn the check engine light on and set a fault code.

My gmc k2500 p/u has a clicking noise when i accelerate and bogs down


sounds like your engine is TIRED ! worn out, lifters tapping, loss of power, valve train worn, tired, NEW HEADS, LIFTERS, CAM, would help this out a lot, had to do this to my 1988 gmc 2500, before I did could not climb a hill, and don't forget the NEW TIMING CHAIN SET. mine was also overheating, its because the engine was working tooooo hard, and not that good ! just thought I'd pass it on, JEG'S.COM or SUMMIT RACING check them out, good prices for your truck ! if you don't think this is your problem, them move on , but what if ????

2006 Hyundai Elantra with 2.0 automatic with 111000 miles. Car is hesitating and begins shaking going up steep hills. Problem seems the worst at around 3000 rpm going up hill. The car wont stop shaking...


There's many reasons this can happen, but start simple. Fuel pump may be failing. Usually under load they can not supply the fuel the engine is demanding. (Up hill acceleration is a classic example). change the fuel filter first, if that doesn't not correct the problem, test fuel system pressure. (:

97 gmc pickup with automatic transmission trouble


1st thing to do is test the system for codes, the problem is most likely a failed or stuck shift solenoid indside the trans, have you ever serviced the trans, sometimes a fluid and filter cahnge will cure these kinds of issues.
