Question about 2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

1 Answer

Won't go into reverse this morning

Cold morning, warmed vehicle up for 20 mins or so, no less, it went into reverse at first then it seemed to slip in the snow. It then started to give a "whirl" sound as if it was spinning the universal or something. I put it into forward thinking maybe ice. Back into reverse it got worse and only moved me 10 feet then I stopped. Went forward again with no problems or bad sounds. Now when placed in reverse it will only "whirl" and not move. Putting it into 4 wheel drive does nothing for it. No movement. Most of the whirl sound comes from the rear end.
Ideas?

Reverse requires more hydraulic pressure to hold it in reverse. Maybe you have a partially plugged filter that the thicker, cold fluid can't get through. The whirr could be the pump in the trannie being dtarved for fluid due to being plugged. Otherwise, you may have a bad clutch or band for reverse that requires a trans overhaul. good lcuk.

Changed the transmission fluid on my automatic, not vehicle wont go into reverse.


Are you sure you put the correct amount in? Sounds like when it's cold the fluid settles on the bottom. But when it warms up, the fluid starts to travel and not be enough to lube and cool the gears. Check you owners manual or compare what you took out with the amount you put in.

What is the drive cycle of a 2003 grand am


The drive cycle is a series of conditions that you drive a vehicle to prepare the emissions systems for an emmisions test.

the drive cycle that is most common to GM vehicles is the following;

1. cold start vehicle and allow to warm up to driving temperature, then set a load on the engine, ie. turn on radio and A/C MAX and headlights.
2. reverse vehicle for approx. 15-20 ft.
3. from a stop, drive vehicle at 35mph @ 25% throttle for 15min
4. allow vehicle to slow to a near stop without using hte brake pedal.
5, begin driving vehivle again 45mph @ 50% throttle for 15-20 min.
6. check for emissions status and test.

***OBDII vehicles (95-99) can have up to (2) two emissions monitors at unready status for PA and can sucessfully submit a "pass" status.
vehicles that are 1988 (OBDI) are emissions exempt.

My 2003 chevy tahoe won't start in the morning


Many possible causes....Too little info to make an intelligent suggestion. Try charging the problem vehicle's battery with jumper cables for 2 minutes with the supply vehicle running at fast idle (or about 1500-2000 RPM, if it is tachometer equipped) before you try to crank the problem vehicle on a cold morning. If it starts right up, you likely have a weak battery that needs replacing.

It seems on very cold mornings my 2003 Ford Escape does not want to start. So far this winter there have 4 instances when the vehicle would not start. In all cases, all I needed was a jump from someone...


Cold temperatures cause batteries to lose a great deal of current flow. Batteries use chemical reactions to create electric charge. The chemical reactions simply move slower at low temperatures. So, there really is just a minor problem here. I think if you buy a 2amp trickle charger and let it charge your battery at night before a cold morning start you'll find everything satisfactory. the charger will gently warm up and charge the battery. In the morning, the battery will be topped up and ready for a high-performance-required cold start. The charger is much less expensive than a new battery. But if your battery is more than 3 years old, you may consider getting a new one as yours has only about 25% of its life left.
