1996 Chevy Tahoe with Transmission issues

I have a 1996 Chevy Tahoe with an issues... It is spitting a sputtering after I put it in gear. Runs perfectly fine as soon as I start it up but as soon as it goes into gear it starts stalling. The check engine light comes on and I had a friend with a tool and he said it's the transmission module. Where is the transmission module and is it easy to change. Would I need to pull the transmission or can it be done with out that. Also is it on the out side of the transmission or on the under carriage? Would this be causing my problems or could it be something else. I have changed my wires plugs and even changed the fuel pump because it was making a noise and I thought that could be the issue. I'm at a dead end. I did have someone tell me it could be the spider injectors. Please HELP! Bobby

    emissionwiz, thanks for getting back to me. so the tranmission module is the same thing as the fuel injector computer? Where under the hood is it and is it something that is easy to change? I don't want to have to modify anything and start splicing wires but if it something I can unbolt and disconnect the wires and then bolt back on and reconnect, then I'll try it! thanks for your help!

    Rich, Thanks for your response. But what should I do to fix it... should I change the ECM? What is the TCC and is that something that should be changed. I have had this in 3 different shops and no one seems to know what's wrong with it.I had the last one stop when he told me he thought it was the spider injectors and it was going to cost me about 1000 to fix it... I just want someone to point me in the right direction and see if I get get this thing running right again!

    emissionwiz, you are correct the ECU is under the hood. But I'm still at a dead end on what to do...

    Rich, I'm waiting on my friend to get back to me with the code we pulled off of it. The transmission still seems to shift fine. It starts off in 1st and then shifts through all the gears just with spitting and sputtering.

    Do you have to remove the transmission to access the valve body inside transmission, or to change solenoid?

Hello;
The ECM is located inside your passenger kick panel. The codes that your friend pulled relate to the drivetrain portion of the ECM. The controls and solenoids that are causing your shudder are inside the transmission in the valve body. The TCC is probably at fault and locked on. Hope this clears things up. Let me know if you need more help.
Thanks;

    Hello;

    The TCC is the Torque Convertor Clutch solenoid. It is located on the valve body inside the transmission. The 4L60E transmission is electronically controlled. If you have a failure with this solenoid it will prevent the convertor from releasing and stay locked up. It will also make the transmission start out in 3rd gear. The ecm is probably not bad and your injectors are probably ok. Can you get me the code numbers? Thanks and hope this helps. Let me know.

Assuming you have checked your transmission fluid levels, you may require a soft parts rebuild of your transmission, or an adjustment of your upper clutch band

I have a 1996 Chevy Tahoe. Just put in a new computer system on it. Now the shifting is messed up. What could be causing this? Shifted fine with the old brain before I changed it.


The new computer may have been downloaded with different shift points from the factory. Make the computer is set for the same transmission.

If my throttle potion sensor is bad on my 2007 chevy tahoe over time can that cause my transmission to go?


I doubt it.
The sensor could make the transmission not know when to shift, but not much else.

Will a 1990 chevy 1500 truck 4x4 transmission fit in a 1997 4x4 chevy tahoe


yes it will as long as it is the same model transmission. As long as you get a transmission out of a standard cab truck you should be ok. ( for a good idea Most 88-98 gm trucks, full size blazers,jimmys,tahoes, and yukons will interchange) same chassis just different bodys and emblems

Did you replace distributor cap and rotor? These are common on these engines. If you pull the cap, look at the contacts on the cap. You will probably find a lot of build up on them.
