Question about Chevrolet 1500

1 Answer

My 1990 Chevy 1500 2wd (89000 mi) doesn't seen to like reverse or 4th gear.  I've serviced it (new fluid and filter) and fluid was burnt and my magnet was covered.  Drove well for a few days, then slowly got worse.  Just got the time to open it back up again, and it looks like I never did anything.

    Pulled out the transmission and gutted it... Friction plates are burnt and I've got a snapped steel in the Direct Clutch Pack... 


    Sure is time for a rebuild..
    Thanks..

    It sounds like the clutches are bad and needs rebuilt.

What would cause a turbo 400 transmission to not go into any gear until it wants to. It will sit for any length of time and then go into gear. after that it shifts fine until you shut the truck...


Sounds like a blocked transmission oil filter or front oil pump problem. Have you had the transmission serviced (e.g. flushed with fluid and filter replaced)?

'01 chevy prizm a.trans. only works in low and reverse/how to fix


Why would you change fluid if the old fluid was BLACK

The trans is burnt,is that new to you

Has to be rebuilt or a reman installed

From now on you change the fluid in all your
vehicles every 3 years to avoid that

Trans Fluid remove HEAT
That is why you change it

It doesn't fix a thing & should make it slip worse

check the transmission fluid. if it is dark and smells burnt with debris in the fluid. you need a ****** repair. but before you jump to conclusions. change fluid and filter in ****** first, and see if this helps. I know on the nissans there is quit a few transmission complaints. especially automatics. but do fluid and filter first. then go from there ! good-day ! and may god bless.

Just replaced trannie(auto) in 1993 escort, it has a little hesitation when shifting gears and the new oil smells burnt and is frothy on the tip. the level is low could the low fluid level be the problem?


YES! But your tranny has a BAND for first gear, and clutches for 2nd, third, and if equipted, 4th. The bands are usually the cause of the "burnt smell." The foam is cause by fluid aggitation. DO NOT JUST ADD FLUID. Drain the fluid in the tranny case, and replace the filter, and the fluid. I suspect that the salvaged tranny may have a burned 1st gear band.

Automatic Transmission Doesn T Shift Into Drive but will go in reverse, from any other gear (including P or neutral)


check transmission fluid make sure its not low.if fluid looks black and smells burnt.change transmission fluid and filter.if you already change fluid and filter.your transmission manual valve out of adjustment.or you have faulty oil pump and worn over drive with a damage roller clutch.also forward clutch has worn or burned clutch plates damage piston or seals.

Wont go into reverse and doesnt go into 3rd unless i let off gas


It sounds like you broke the sun gear shell in the transmission. This is real common on 4L60E. The transmission will have to be disassembled to fix it. If this is what is wrong it will have no reverse and hold 1st till about 30 and then skip 2nd, right to 3rd. Then never shift in to 4th.
