Thanks Steve

Drop down relay in trans

    It is possible that a local parts store will have it. Just ask for the drop down solenoid for that vehicle. Try to put it in low 1 and see if it takes off faster and then shift to Low 2 and then Drive as you are driving (same as if it were manual transmission). I'm not sure about the price. The solenoid should be in the transmission pan and not in the actual transmission so it should be less expensive to repair.

2003 chevy astro van w/AWD. AWD is not working at all.


what was your test to determine the failure ?
if you jacked up one end and the car didn't drive off the jacks , that is how an all wheel drive works
It has a differential in the transmission that allows the front axle to drive at different speeds to the rear ( same as one wheel on the axle will go faster than the other when going around corners)
it is used to prevent torque wind up in the drive train and destroying transmissions , diffs and drive lines
it has to have all 4 wheels on the ground so that the 3rd diff is not operational unless going over a speed bump or dips in the road
however if you have a 4 wheel lock for the transmission, that is different as it locks up the 3rd diff in the transmission making the car a 4 x 4

I have a 2000 GMC safari van 2-wheel drive. When it shifts to 3rd it seems to jump into neutral. What can cause this? Changed transmissions and it is doing the same thing


My local transmission specialst tells me that ALL GM van transmissions run hot. Especially within the Safari/Astro design - that doesn't reflect the wind very well (compared to today's smaller mini-vans). He recommends ATF aux cooler (LPD Design) be installed in all Safari / Astro vans - even non-towing vans. For example, Hayden 678 or 679 LPD design.

re: http://www.summitracing.com/parts/HDA-678/

If wondering, I installed Hayden 679 in my prev AWD Safari van and installed Hayden 678 in my wife's smaller size GM mini-VAN. re: http://i178.photobucket.com/albums/w251/Spike99-Pictures/Montana%20Van/AuxTransC- ooler-UpperSupport-2.jpg &http://i178.photobucket.com/albums/w251/Spike99-Pictures/Montana%20Van/AuxTransC- ooler-LowerSupport-1.jpg

As a suggestion, install the LPD aux cooler design (re: Tru-cool or Hayden 678 or 679) in your "running hot" GM van. These ATF coolers work great in my GM vans...

Sounds like you have a c/v joint beginning to go bad...Could be wrong.... but, I'm not there to test it! Look underneath and see if any c/v boots are torn... that will be your first clue!!

Has the 'Check Engine' light come on? I had this problem at 30,000 miles and the trouble codes set were transmission component slipping. Ultimately required replacement of the transmission.
