Question about 1992 Chevrolet C1500

1 Answer

Just swapped moTors in my 92 silverado tranny won't go into gear any help?

Once the truck was fired up and transmission fluid topped up, I went to shift into gear and there's no motion , nothing. Retraced all electrical, and I can't seem to get why. The truck was towed 25 miles with a tow truck, but tranny worked fine before engine blew.

Check TPS for smooth and linear electrical response over the entire range of motion. If not, replace.

Double check by using the pressure gauge and watch for a big drop when the PCM commands 2nd gear. Worst case: poor line pressure rise. Poor line pressure rise due to leaking boost valve, clogged EPC filter screen, failing EPC solenoid, or worst case: leaky seals throughout. Transgo HD2-C kit fixes first two without removing trans. Seal restorer may fix last problem, but probably R&R. Also try a transmission flush with BG brand products (Firestone stocks it).

Put a line pressure gauge ($55 shipped on Ebay, or visit a local trans shop) on the pressure test port and go for a drive to verify proper line pressure. Base pressure at idle in P,N,OD should be around 70psi and around 140psi in R. Max line pressure should be at least 190psi at WOT in 1st or 2nd, 225psi is optimum. If base pressure is low, trans or pump is worn out. If max pressure is low, check EPC solenoid. If reverse is slow to engage, and line pressure does not come up to at least 130psi in reverse, replace the boost valve with a Transgo 0.500" boost valve (easy fix in pan).

Good luck and hope this helps get more life out of your transmission, but start with the simple and check the TPS and replace if worn.

There is a service bulletin for this condition.It has to do with a ceramic high pressure valve ball fracture inside the fuel injection pump,which may lead to internal pump damage resulting in low fuel rail pressure.This could contaminate the fuel rails and injectors with debris.The fuel pump will operate but with reduced output flow.The fuel injection pump will have to be replaced or repaired.Look and see if there are any repair shops that specialize in injection pumps.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Why won't my chevrolet silverado move when put in gear?


Hi, I am guessing it is an automatic transmission. Try putting the gear shift lever into a lower gear and see if it moves then. Sometimes the shift linkage gets mal-adjusted. I would also check the transmission fluid level. If it is really low, the tranny will not work either. If the fluid is really low, you'll need to look for a leak after you refill it. I am assuming that the transmission worked when you picked it up from the shop that repaired it.

Transmission is going in gear every time but the car won't drive every time


Have a look at the automatic transmission fluid.
Under the hood should be 2 long dipsticks, usually they have a colored plastic handle so you can see them more easily.
You will need to identify them, perhaps ask a friend for help.
One dipstick is for motor oil, the other for automatic transmission fluid.
The automatic transmission fluid should be redish in color, that is a dye put in the fluid so you know it is not motor oil.
Check that fluid, your owner's manual in the glove box will tell you whether to warm the eingine up first before you check it.
If the fluid is low, add some with a long funnel, only add a pint at a time, and check it about 5 minutes after you add it.
Repeat this until it shows full.
Car parts stores sell quarts of automatic transmission fluid.
If you pull the dipstick from the transmission and it is not low, and the fluid is clean (not black coloured), you may either have a transmission that has failed, or your brakes may be sticking ( like the emergency brake is on).
Be blessed

Hi, My name is Mike and I am currentyl having tranny problems with my 2002 Silverado 2500HD 2WD 6.0 4l80e. I bought the truck knowing it had tranny problems and the issue was once the tranny would warm up...


you sound like you know what you are doing so excuse me for thinking out loud-if it were me, I would really carefully check the cable and the pawl to see that it is adjusted properly-because it sounds like either that or possibly the harness is not connected or there is a wiring problem.

Transmission will shift, but car won't move.


Hi, if it is an automatic transmission, it could be several things:
It could be really low on transmission fluid or the fluid may have leaked out. Do you see an reddish or reddish-brown fluid under the car? Check the fluid level by looking at the transmission fluid dipstick.
The torque converter (essentially a motion transfer device that resembles two fans facing each other) may be bad. As the engine spins, up, the fluid in the torque converter starts spinning and flowing and starts to 'spin' the blade on the transmissin side (it's called locking up the torqure converter). If there a malfunction in the converter, or no fluid, as noted above, no motion to the transmission.
Is the emergency brake stuck on?
Another issue might be the transmission linkage - when you move the shift handle to "D", there is a linkage that moves a lever on the transmission to change how fluid moves thru the transmission, etc. Check for a broken linkage between the bottom of the shift handle and the tranny. This is best done at a good auto repair shop or dealer.
If this is a manual transmission car, you probably have a worn out clutch plate or broken shift linkage. See a mechanic.

92 thunderbird transmission slipping, its about a half of a quart low. would this cause it to slip and what type of fluid do you use?


Absolutely; Automatic transmissions will slip for a number of factors but the the #1 cause is low fluid level closely followed by very old and brown fluid. Recomended fluid is MerconDexronII. Best of luck.

Transmission downshifts hard when I let off the gas at slow speeds


Transmission sensor.your gear ratio was not set up properly..Its supposed to be mapped out soo the tranny shifts at a neutral rpm(around 2500-3400 rpm) its punching into gear correct?could have been a rebuilt tranny in which case they just replace the current problem..Or it could be a flywheel.1st thing to get done is to change the transmission fluid and filter.Goto midas or somewhere like they and they call it a flush and fill and it costs around $160 which is best case scenario.
