    Is the check engine light on? Do you know what transmission you have or can you atleast tell me if it is a 3 or 4 speed and what engine it has in it?

    Sounds like a blown fuse to the transmission. On the round plug above the modulator check for power on the pink and black wire. Also it would help to have it scanned to see what codes are in the computer.

    Can you tell what gear it is in does it start in 1st and not shift up or can you tell if it is starting off in a higher gear? With in the gear it stays in what is the top speed you can achieve without over reving the engine. Does it accelerate slowly? The transmission fuse I wanted you to check is in the dash fuse box and marked ERLS. Check this fuse for power on both sides with a test light.

I have 88 Chevrolet 1500 4.3 and will not shift out of first in drive first gear doesn't slip and it still has reverse


Check fluids. Start, warm up to operating temp. With foot on brake and at stop, shift through all gears, P, R, N, D, 2, 3, etc. pausing 2 seconds in each gear, then go all the way back through the gears, pausing 2 seconds in each gear still. Check the transmission dipstick. Should be in range. Too much, or too little will cause bad behavior. If fluid is good, it could be the tranny or the 1-2 shift solenoid. Some are external on the tranny and replaceable. Good luck!

I have a 1999 Chevy 5.3L Silverado Z71 4x4. My truck is having transmission issues. In drive (D) it shifts 1-2. During that shift it hesitates before shifting to 2nd and rpms rise. It will not shift to 3rd...


that should be a 700R4. probably a broken sunshell inside the tranny. need to have it rebuilt. Mine only cost 250 bucks for the parts, but the tranny guy is family.

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.

Shifts in and out of over drive and shifts very hard in all other gears


this sounds like your tranny is low on flewed if your vehice had a dipstick for the felewed check it to see if its low if it is make shour that the vehicle is on level grond and fill the tranny to the full mark onthe stick (remember if your cars engine temp gage is on cold fill to the cold mark)

to fill the tranny fill it little bit by little bit not all at once and have the engine running while filling after putting in a bit of flewed get in the car and shift threw all the gears slowly then check the dip stic and put in a bit more if needed and shift the gears agane and do this till the tranny is full wate a few minits then shift the gears agane then take the car for a short drive around to see hoe itshifts threw the gears

i hope this helps

check your trans fluid level make sure that it is ok but you have to check it hot in park on level ground in order to get an accurate reading. if fluid level is ok you may have to get the tranny serviced the clutches inside the tranny could be slipping.
