Question about Cars & Trucks

I swapped out my transmission in my 99 chevy Tahoe with a salvaged one from the yard with 112 thousand on it. But now it won't engage any gears at all. Is there something I should have done or check for to fix this problem??

SOURCE: 1985 ramcharger transmission doesn't engage

if your torque converter on the front of the trans wasnt seated properly before the engine was set in and tightened at the bell housing, you may have cracked the front pump on the tranny

SOURCE: 99' Chevy Tahoe Air Conditioner not working

It doesn't blow cold air? Doesn't come on at all? What's the problem? If it doesn't blow cold after a charge, it leaks. Either on the compressor or in a line or both. To start at the dealer, a compressor is about $1200. That's what they told me. I have two leaks. You can buy remanufactured compressor on ebay for under $200. Or find a good shop (polar bear around here) with reasonable prices and have them do it for something in between.

If it no air is moved at all by your climate control system, the blower motor could be fried, the switch may have gone bad or a fuse is blown perhaps. If it moves air, but not cold air, recharge it and see if it stays cold. If so, great! If not, find the leak.

My 1995 Chevy Tahoe won't shift gears as I'm

Probably the speed sensor on the transmission. It would cause both problems. You should also have a check engine light with a trouble code for the sensor.

Transmission replaced with salvaged part now gears won't engage worked for 1 month after install?

You never install salvage yard transmissions or transfer
cases,including a manual trans

A salvage yard is for parts no longer made or rebuilt
& mostly for a hobby or restoration project

They are possibly worn more than the one you replaced

Buy a completely rebuilt factory reman & install it

It doesn't matter about the salvage yard or installer

Your correct,they may be sort of being even employed
in the auto repair field,unfortunately you should have asked
first, about that type of work,repair,etc.

Can i put a 1999 montana 3.4 into a 2002 grand am with a blown 3.4

Have a salvage yard check their inter-change manual to see if it is a straight swap. If they say no, it won't, just means it won't be a straight swap. You may still be able to use the block and heads, and swap any necessary parts from your old engine to the new one. I'm thinking a lot of sensors and parts may have different connectors and possibly calibrations, between the two engines.
Good luck.

'93 chevy k1500 will not move in reverse. truck

You may have to check the valve for the transmission. Each of the gears has valves which sends the fluid to engage the gear. It may need cleaning or is faulty. Normally this happens when you have debris or dirt in your oil.

1999 Tahoe suddenly wont go in reverse. Experts say $2500 to fix. Is there another way?

sound like the transmission is out of the reverse gear. 2500 is a little high, brand new transmission cost around 1500. try to check at your local salvage yard some time you can find a low milages transmission with good warranty, then have a reputable shop to put it in for you. you can save a lot that way.
