1997 silverado installed used trans n speed senser plug is diferent and now it wont down shift

If you have adifferent plug for the speed sensor then you probaly have the wrong year model transmission.Even though 93 through 97 look similar they do not interchange.Your speed sensor should be on the passenger side of tail housing,That is the 1995 up design.If you have a trans with the speed sensor on the drivers side of tail housing then you have a 93 to 94 design.93 and 94 were non-pwm units with 5 solenoids.95 was a pwm unit with 6 solenoids with low impediance pwm solenoid.96 and up are pwm units with 6 solenoids and high impediance pwm solenoid.Swapping these units can blow computers.It is probaly stuck in third gear because the fuse is blown or because of open vss circuit.You will not be able to make this transmission work.

Hi i did a 350 swap in my 93 s10 and now it wont shift into overdrive and it takes off in 3rd gear u can manuale shift it but it wont shift by its self or into over drive at all need help thanks robbie

Try adjusting the transmission rod on the side of the transmission put it in park then put on the e-brake and move the shifter rod all the way forward to park position then it should work. if not you may have bent the shifting linkage when installing the transmission.

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?

A used transmission I purchased will not shift into overdrive it just lunges at around 60mph, and will not go any faster because it won't shift up, shifts fine up and down in all other gears, fluid and...

Make sure that your new transmission came out of a 1995. 93 and 94 transmissions are the same and 96-98 are the same but 95 is an odd ball and only a transmission from a 95 will work. i had the same problem cause i was told 93-95 were the same so i bought one out of a 94 and it wouldn't shift past 3rd. so i found out later that it has got to be a 95 that goes in a 95. two transmissions later.

Did you adjust the shift rods from the shifter to the trans shift arms. Take your shift rods loose and put shifter in neutral, and transmission arms in neutral, then adjust the rods so they slide in. Then your shifter matches your transmission and you should be able to shift just fine.
