2001 GMC Jimmy rough jump into 1st & 2nd gear after a stop

I have a 2001 Jimmy and when I come to a stop, and go it gets up to 3000 rpms before it shifts into 1st gear and it jerks into gear then again before it goes into 2nd gear. After that it's fine. It runs great on the expressway but in local traffic it's frustrating because it has no pick up. I recently changed the fuel filter.

The more I learn about these solenoids, the more we can say that these trans shops may have lied to us from the start in stating the need for rebuilds...

Read up on all the different easily replaceable solenoids in the trans...

SHIFT Solenoids,
Kick Downs,
TCC,
And a few others...

If you don't normally get the trans service done on your truck, it will be more prone to damage...

So spend the money in preventative maintenance than to suffer from these headaches and then still spending money to have it repaired, and taken for thousands instead of just barely a $100 bucks worth of solenoids...

Had the same problem on my 2001 GMC Jimmy, but my reverse was also out!!!! Was the transmission!!! But it also did the same thing when starting from a dead stop! Had to rev up the RPMs to get it to shift, but once it got into the higher gears, it drove fine!!!! My mother also had a 2001 GM S-10 with the same problem and it was her tranny as well!!! Hope this is not your problem because it is not cheap........a friendly mechanic charged $1300 to replace the tranny with a used one with lower miles!! He also said that these models of GMs were notorious because the spline gear used in these models were made of a lower grade of metal and were prone to wear out prematurely!!!!! I also first suspected the shift sensor before I talked to a professional!!!!!

My 1997 Jimmy runs fine in idle when I take off the vechile is fine until it reaches 20 mph it won't accelerate and the rpms increase up to 3000 but no speed. What's wrong it's a 4 wheel d


Sounds like 2nd gear in the transmission is slipping. Cars usually shift at 15-20 mph from first to 2nd. First check the trans fluid.

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.

My 2001 GMC Jimmy 4x4 Automatic with 84K miles. It winds when I put it in reverse and I think I only have 1st and 2nd gear. Additionally it revs high, like over 3000 rpm, delays and then eventually...


It winds up in 1st and then shifts right from 1st into 3rd. Then never shifts into 4th. Plus rev is gone. You broke the sun shell. The transmission will need to rebuilt or replaced.

1996 gmc jimmy won`t shift from 1st to 2nd


IF the abs dash light is on and if the speedometer is sluggish or not working at all, it is probably a bad speed sensor on the transmission. and easy fix under $40 for the part. Mine was stuck in second gear for a while then worked then it stuck in first gear and i had the CHECK ENGINE light on.
