Chevy transmission won't shift into 3rd

1997 Chevy 1500 2WD will take off fine going through 1st gear and shifts fine into 2nd, but when it tries to shift into 3rd it acts like it goes to neutral. I checked the solenoids in the transmission and they all clicked when i hooked them up to a battery...not sure what to do now??

    I have the same problem on my 93 2500 gmc exactly the same, I'm thinking bands are shot or theres all these little ball bearings that move around to allow fluid to flow to different areas when it shifts and one of those is plugged or shot or theres a shift pattern "gasket" that may also be shot, if u find out let me know!!

When my 2001 GMC Yukon tries to shift into 3rd gear or overdrive - it is like it goes into nutral. It never shifts to 3rd. 1st and 2nd gears does just fine.


this sounds like the pressure valve is going bad on third gear. cheap fix try Lucus transmission additive to increase the pressure.
To do it right go to a good transmission shop an have it serviced and flushed.

check your kick down cable attached to the carb, it may be out of adjustment and forcing the trans to stay in "passing gear"

1998 Dodge Grand Caravan will not shif into 2nd


Most likely the second gear section of the transmission has gone bad. There are 3 or 4 different gear sections or assemblies in an automatic transmission, when they go bad, they go bad.

92 chevy s10 4x4 4.3L manual transmission no 3rd gear


Hi:

Your transmission has 3 shift rails...
1st - 2nd
3rd -4th
5th- Reverse

If your 3rd gear doesn't work , you have an internal transmission problem, such as a syncronizer, or similar fail... There is not much you can fix, without removeing the transmission.
