1998 GMC Jimmy 4x4 lost reverse and is slipping in drive

I went to back up in a parking lot yesterday and my reverse would not work. No noise, just nothing at all. It got me home in drive, but on any hill (and sometimes on the flats) would slip a little. Is there anyone here that has had the same issue and anyone who might know how to repair. I have been informed over the phone through to transmission shops that a rough quote would be between $1,800 and $2,000 for repairs. I (like nay others) have been unemployed recently and do not have this kind of money to pay for such repair, but am mechanically inclined and would attemp myself if anyone might know what it could be. Thanks.

You will to rebuild, sounds like low&reverse clutchs or direct clutchs are burnt, a used trans might be a thought.

Sound's like your sun gear in the transmission broke. Sorry for the bad new's, but there is always used transmission out there to be found for great prices. Good luck.

How do you adjust the shift cable on a 1995 gmc jimmy, wont go into reverse or park.


On the 1995 Jimmy, the shift cable can come loose on the mount on the side of the transmission where the cable meets the trans. When it slips, the alignment goes off and causes the driver to not be able to put the trans into park. If you take a long stick you can push the shift arm on the trans to the park position and your trans will go into park.....what you (and I) really need to know is how to take the shift cable mount apart and reset it.
