soory to say this but it sounds like its time for a trany overhaul, this happens, even if you had no warning signs, you got 159,000 miles out of it but now its time for a rebuilt trany, this truck is a 1999 4wd with a good engine its worth repairing, good luck.

SOURCE: 1997 Chevrolet Silverado Z71 p0758 Won't shift

P0758 code is shift solenoid B electrical /2-3 shift solenoid circuit electrical, It better to inspect the wire going into the transmission they have a tendency to leak transmission fluid into the circuit make inspection for proper connection if you decide to replace the solenoid you still need to inspect the circuit for proper mating. If this solenoid fails and you wait to long to replace it you can loose the ECM due to the high power draw it takes from the ECM.

Suspect 99 malibu broken timing belt


If its a 99 4 cyl 2.4 ltr it should have a timing chain. Check your PCV (positive Crankcase Ventilation) Valve. it should rattle when you shake it. sometimes you can clean it with carb cleaner. but for what they cost, just go buy a new one. When they plug up it doesn't let your crankcase breathe and you will start getting oil in your throttle body or carb. Gas engines don't like to run on oil for the combustion process.4 cyl engines dont have a pcv valve just the v6 motor...

Loosing prime


if you don't have any leaks it is probably the check valve in the fuel pump if you just cycle the key three times by turning key on and wait 7 seconds and turn off and wait 10 seconds each cycle it will start easier if that works and it starts fine the problem is the check valve in the fuel pump
