SOURCE: 2003 chevy silverado will not shift into drive or overdrive.

transmission shift solenoid is stuck open this is a common vehicle issue in automatics and not particular to any make or model vehicle 15 dollar part and arm and leg for labor if taken in

heres an idea to try
take out the transmission filter and replace with new one make sure to take not of any metal debry in trans pan this indicates the trans had sheered its gears down and a trans rebuild is needed
the transfilter needs to be changed at a certain milage interval they can get clogged up
there is a kit you buy for your truck at any parts store
its an easy change hour of time unbolt trans pan unbolt trans filter and put new one in
kit comes with new seals less than an hour you can do it yourself

to overdrive you would feel a difference in shift badley if it was that something to keep in mind

SOURCE: no reverse

there should be a vacuum tube on the pas side of the trans. its either diconnected or broken. or the bans are bad. also check the filter. mine went bad and all I did was change the filter and used synthetic fluid.
when the pan and filter is down see if there is a heavy spring in one of the corners. if its casing is broke then it wont allow fluid to travel to and fro.

You might want to have the ignition switch checked because there are three wires that run to the tranny and if it does not sent the correct voltage to the tranny (electric) then it doesn't know the RPM to shift, you may wonder how i know this? because i just had a tranny rebuilt three times over this same problem they replaced the harness from the ignition to god only knows where for 150.00 and now it is doing great.

It will work but you will have to modify the crossmember and driveshaft and the computer. The 4l60e is an easy trans to recondition

SOURCE: chevrolet silverado 2003 5.7l transfer not

Very common. I have the same truck. I replaced the 2-4WD switch on the dash but the problem also was the actuator under the front end. very simple on replacing both parts.

2004 Chevy Silverado will not shift out of park, has a leaking transmission line. If fluid is low will it cause this problem

it will cause it not to move in gear,for the transmission runs on pressure from the fluid,if it doesn't shift out of park at all could be lingage on shifter.

We have a Chevy 4 X 4 2003 Silverado truck, automatic transmission, and we were stranded last night because it would not shift from "Park" to another gear? Help

Your problem probably lies in the linkage, there are nylon bushings in the linkages to the tranny that get brittle and break over time.

Check your linkages, and you will probably find what I have reffered to.

1991 Chevy Silverado Rolls while in Park

Hi, This looks like the Pawl in the gearbox has been broken/damaged or even left out when the box was overhauled.
It lock the gearbox whilst in park so acting like a brake.
It could have occurred if someone put the vehicle in park whilst still moving.
Hope this helps?
