    Try shifting straight into Drive (plain D) instead of Overdrive (D with an O around it). Plain city-type driving, especially a lot of stop'n'go driving should be done in regular drive.

You may have a clogged tranny filter. It is internal, so if you aren\'t a wrench, you\'d better take it to a transmission shop for a tranny-fluid change..

Wipers stopped working, not a fuse

Your wiper motor or wiper transmission may be bad. If you can hear the wiper motor running, but the wipers don't move, your wiper transmission is bad. If you can't hear the wiioper motor, and you're sure all fuses are good and all contacts are solid, your wiper motor is toast.

I meant it quit pulling i cut the car off waited about 5 r 10 seconds granked it back up in neutral put back in drive started pulling like a new 1 4 about 5 miles same thing over and over can u explai

okay, let us see if we can figure this out.
Its sounds like you were driving and the engine stopped working or engine kept running but transmission stopped pulling the car? and when you shut it down for a while then restarted car the transmission worked good for about 5miles and then stopped pulling. is this correct? if it is then check the transmission fluid and make sure it is full, to check fluid car must be on level ground and engine running and shiftter in park.

If the fluid is full then i would say you have ****** problems and should have it looked at, before it gets worse. good day.

Problem with transmission. I am going to try to be VERY specific so you can help me with the best possible scenario. The truck has 232,000 miles. It has not been worked on very much. It has pulled a...

Cheapest scenario is to change the transmission filter. That is if it is an automatic. When you do this, most transmissions have a magnet in the transmission pan. If yours has one I would check it for excessive metal shavings or worse metal chunks.

I have an electonic four wheel drive in my chevy truck and it is now not coming out of 4 low. Can any one offer some advice

Check your fuses first and then turn your ignition to the on position, engine not running. Set your parking brakes and place transmission to neutral, then try to shift your transmission out of 4 low.
Remember, transmission in neutral, engine not running and then try to shift it out of 4 low to 4 hi or 2wd. You should hear the encoder motor on your transfer-case click to shift it out of 4 low. If you don't hear it working, then it's ether electrical issues if the fuse is good or the encoder motor it self when bad and will need to be replaced.
Thank you for using fixya and be safe.
