Question about 1994 Chevrolet C1500

3 Answers

4L60E Shifts fine in 1st, 2nd, & 3rd but will not shift into OD

I have a 1994 Chevy C1500 with a 4.3 V6. The transmission shifts fine except it will not go into OD. In 3dr gear if you let off on tthe gas the motor slows down but you get no engine braking.

I just bought this truck so I don't know any past history about the truck.

I am just trying to find out why it will not shift into OD no matter how fast you go.

I have the 4L60E Transmission.

    The fluid level is correct and does not smell burnt. I am going to change the fluid and filter this weekend anyway because I always do that on any used vehicle I purchase.



    Is there a solenoid for the Over Drive? If there is I will change it at the same time I change the fluid.



    Does anyone have the wiring diagram for this 4L60E transmission?

Im not sure but if your using dex3 it has been recalled and recommended to use dex 6 not sure what reasoning is behind it but I just replaced my tranny in my 94 camero that had the same problem wouldn't go Ito overdrive and the new one is doing the same thing and I went with dex 3 instead of 6 so don't do anything drastic unless you have tried every possible option

You have internal transmission damage I expect the clutches on third and fourth gear are wiped out. Its either that or a solenoid gone bad that holds those clutches pressure get it in a transmission shop soon to avoid whole transmission replacement costs.

A common problem with most overdrive units.Overdrive should only be used above 40 mph. With the mileage odds are that you need to have transmission looked at professionally.It maybe time to consider rebuilding it.I do not see a trans service of being a benefit.

Check the linkage at the transmission. Have somebody move the selector while you watch the linkage move. It might be out of adjustment for reverse, or be binding up.

If it has over 60000 miles it may need a transmission service, which includes a filter and fluid change, fluid may look fine but if filter is clogged and not picking up fluid fast enough when u give it gas the pump spins faster and forces fluid thru to shift, more fluid is needed to shift into higher gear.than to drive
