1995 GMC Siera Truck Transmission

When I first crank the truck and the transmission is cold it seems to shift hard. Once the transmission warms up, then it shifts normal but it don't have as much power as it did when it shifted hard.

I gather its an auto transmission ,which mean your loosing oil pressure from the convertor inside the tranny housing.

Transmission Question


It sounds to me like the transmission is starting to fail. As the clutches inside the transmission wear the clutch pack gains additional clearance. Your pressures in the transmission will be higher with cold oil so it has a tendency to build a bit of extra pressure, but it's also slower in flowing through the transmission. This results in a harder hitting first gear. As the transmission warms up, it will reduce the viscosity of the oil and work fine. Cold weather kills automatic transmissions. Let it warm up before driving it or it won't last long. It will require an overhaul soon.

Transmission slips a little when cold and in cold weather only


My solution would be to recommend a transmission stabilizer additive. Lucas Oil makes a transmission stabilizer. The cost is about $12. Be sure to read the instructions...you need to warm the motor and ******...add through the transmission dipstick fill tube. This additive can work better than a fluid and filter change...depending on your mileage, many mechanics do not recommend opening the transmission pan to drain and replace fluid, and filter. This additive is the best one that I have used. It works to reseal and lubricate your transmission seals, and bands. Hope this helps.

Transmission dosnt shift when truck warms up


FYI
I have a 1995 GMC 1500 with 5.7 truck that the ABS Light comes on and then the tranny starts jumping gears and speedo goes crazy- Changed ignition switch and that did not help.
You said that you had changed the speed sensor on the tranny and that did not help ?? If so that was my next step. Let me know if you find and answer and I will do likewise.

You always add transmission fluid while the car is at running temps because transmission fluid expands when it's hot.

Slow shifting when engine is cold


I have the same problem with my 97.... especially shifting from 3rd to O/D... I've had the tranny serviced and flushed.... It still does it until the tranny warms up.... the tranny's in them are temperature picky!!!!! It's the nature of the beast!!! Wait until spring and everything will be good until next winter!!! If you're really concerned with it you can put a "cold front" on it or block half (NO MORE THAN HALF) of the tranny cooler with cardboard thru the winter months
