Eric sounds like you have a electronic trans mission or computer controled trans.is the check engine light on ?

second it sounds like your trans is in limp in mode ( only has second gear).

the hard shifts is not good news.

somtimes when the controller sets a code that forces limp in it has to be cleared.

dis-connect the battery for a few min. then try it again see if it shifts but be easy on it and make sure fluid level is good.

if it it still messes up CHA CHING hehe i'll fix it fer 1000 bucks

If you put the exact same type of transmission in, you need to re-adjust your shift linkage rod...

I have a 93 Chevy Suburban 1500 and the Transmission won't shift into any gear. I have an 1983 Chevy Suburban Transmission that is still good. Can I use the 83 Transmission in my 93 Suburban?


Not without a little adapting. The 1993 has a 4l60e which is electronically controlled and has shift solenoids. If the 83 is an overdrive it is a 700r4 which is the same trans but not electronic. If you put it in the speedo wont work and you will need to install a T.V. cable so the transmission will shift. The 93 won't go forward or backwards?

Transmission passing gear keep either getting stuck or it dont work because the motor keep idling up in first gear


this could be relative to many things, however you should check a few things before asessing the possibilities. When you put the truck in gear from park, Drive (overdrive) Should be the third notch you come to. so your in park, pull down clunk you're in reverse, clunk you're in neutral, clunk, now you are in drive. If you dont feel/ hear four notches/ clunks, you should be in overdrive. If you take off and it over revs 1st ( you shouldn't see more than 15 mph before it shifts on a stock transmission unless your flooring it and taking off fast) and then hard shifts to second gear, progresses to third gear normally, but wont progress into overdrive, it may be related to your vaccum advance, your shift linkage, or even possibly your timing. From the sounds of it, I would say vaccum advance is the likely cause, if it is otherwise in stock condition. If this is the case it could be as simple as reconnecting a vacum hose to the distributor. Should be to the left hand side of the cap, between the cap and intake manifold as you are looking at the firewall.

This sounds like a wiring issue, check and make sure the transmission connector is ok, no broken locks on hard shell or bent pins.
