Sounds like you have a bad shift solenoid. Not sure if the Chevys are a solenoid pack, or seperate, but it will need to be replaced.

    Sounds like the 2-3 solenoid. If it has a solenoid pack inside, it should all come as one. It may be considered the valve body on the GM's, not 100% sure.

Hello;
It sounds as though your trans is going out. How is reverse? If reverse is real strong then you may just have a solenoid going out. Drop the pan and change the oil and filter if you are comfortable doing that. Inspect the pan for metal shavings and contaminents. Otherwise it would need to go to a shop for repair.

Check your transmission sensors with a network diagnostics. These are often to go bad, they also play a big role when it comes to shifting properly.

I own a 1998 Chevy Blazer 4wd that is on its 3rd transmission and I'm having the same issue where when shifting from 2nd to 3rd gear it's slipping badly my rpm's rev up to 3500 and I have to take my foot...


this is a known issue with the gm 4L60E transmission. the valve body in transmission causes this. if it is wore, then less fluid is sent to shift selonoids. thus causing torque convertor not to lock up, and this causes slipping. if it slips 2 consecutive trips then the transmission detects this and should turn on check engine light. ( p1870 ). you can see if the tcc solinoid is bad. but if not its usually the valve body in tranny.

check your kick down cable attached to the carb, it may be out of adjustment and forcing the trans to stay in "passing gear"
