Question about 1997 Chevrolet Tahoe
Anyone have any thoughts on why my 1997 Tahoe shifts extremely hard after 10-15 mile drive at highway speeds. This shifting feels like the rearend is goning to come apart. This shifting can be easily fixed by just turning the truck off for 5-10 seconds. I have tried to resolve this problem with a new valve body in transmission made better ), and new solenoids ( no change). Any help would be appreciated, Randy Folkers I have a very similar problem in my 1996 Chevy tahoe. It runs great has all the power it used, it nows has 235,000 miles (i know that alot but it runs like it has 100,000 they only problem is when the weather is hot and we go for a drive at highway speeds then slow down when it has to shift back up from 1st to 2nd and 2nd to 3rd it shitfs REALLy hard. I read in one of the post that it is my catalytic converter. Well my tahoe doesnt have a cat. The guy I bought it from cut it out. What else could it be?
Converter clutch regulator valve is worn causing line pressure to rise to maximum in turn causing your harsh shifts. Sonax makes a repair kit for it or you can install a stiffer spring to make it work correctly
