Question about Cars & Trucks
Caprice would not shift into overdrive, so i replaced the transmission and it still will not go into overdrive. What could the problem be? If I need a shifter kit, can someone give me the details. Where, why, how and how much? Thanks
Could possibly just be a bad brake switch, have to check it out elelectricaly . would have to know what year

well the low cost way to go first would be to try and change the trans fluids. If the problems still remains the it may be an internal problem

try checking all fuses the ones in the fuse box inside as well as under the hood. sometimes you have to check the fuses because of a wire touching in the transmission before you had it rebuilt. Try that out and if not I would go back to whom ever rebuilt the transmission.. I have turning wrenches for 22 years and the last ten in my own shop. I come across allot of 99 silverados with trans and transfer case problems. Hope you find a burnt fuse.

I have that exact same truck and transmission and My Transmission did the exact same thing about a year ago and there was some kind of snap ring inside the transmission that broke. I originally thought it had to be an electirical problem because the truck shifted fine until OD or if i turned OD off. The 4r70w is a light transmission and i would suggest you have a shift kit put in and they make a heavier kit to beef it up.. Sorry its probably not the new you were looking for.

sorry to say this trans has to be removed and rebuilt seems like od clutches burnt out-do you tow heavy trailer with truck as you have to tow with od off(push button on shifter)
