If trans fluid is full, it's shot. You could remove pan and check to see if filter is blocked but if fluid smells burned and there is a lot of debris in pan, don't bother with it...just get another one!

Hello, You need someone with GM experience for the particular requirements of your drivetrain. Some types are not recommended to be engaged on dry pavement and others are fulltime.
You might try looking at all of your U-joints for signs of rust tracking or grease slinging.
Work your 2WD into 4WD and back several times. Its' possible that the plungers or Solenoids which engage the gears have Varnished up and simply have not retracted completely back into 2WD position.
Do not know if you are in the States, but there are some soft-cover Repair Manuals at autoparts stores which could cover this.

Make sure you didnt move the shift lever on the transmition, if its not in the proper position it can cause the linkage to bind when you try to shift it into gear from the column- Hope this helps you out

2002 chevy duramax fuel gauge stopped working and makes vibrating noise sometimes around back fuel tank is this a simple fix and how thanks


Well I have a 2002. I have had this prob from the day I drove it home from the dealer. Evry time I'd put fule in the rear tank the guage stopped working. The transfer pump stopped working. It was back at chevy (3) times, and still no fix. They keep puting in new rear transfer pumps in it but that is not doing it.
It is an Electrical Problem, I keep geting rear transfer pump codes. So I was just unhooking the bat's but it's a pain.
So I just stopped puting fuel in the rear tank. And now if it stops working I just us the scanner to clear the codes and it will start to work... I am so done with this truck.
This truck also had ( whater pump, (2) Glow plugs, Injectors, fan cluch,) all go out in the first (5) years. GM, Is trash...
