Check transmission fluid level first if it is full or if it is milky looking or smell cooked change the fluid and filter because the screen in the filter maybe plugged and not allowing the fluid to go to the troque converter

yous should probably change the filter before you overhaul it because it is cheaper

to change you need

I have a 1994 caprice ex police lt1 4l60e. things were fine. for about 2 months.then getting on freeway picking up speed and trans acted like it did not want to up shift. it was already in 2nd. got home,...


hi, it may be the transmission oil, transmission oil LEVEL or and transmission filter.
first check transmission level by starting the engine (ticking over) go through ALL GEARS and check level. this level will (drop from standing idle). NOT ENOUGH FLUID
if the FILTER is partially blocked then not enough fluid reaching the chambers. NOT ENOUGH FLUID.
the fluid may be full of deposits. transmission fluid needs REPLACING and or FILTER.
also check if leaking transmission fluid.
check if lever out of range (worn, can't get to position before end of gear lever travel).
the brake bands may be WORN, or needs adjusting
the KICK-DOWN seams to work. check link-ergs for wear and movement.
the speedo seams to have a BAD CONNECTION (closed circuit connected then open circuit). loose connector. gerry
