Question about 2006 Chevrolet Uplander
Posted by Anonymous on
Probably too late but for other users searching: You probably have the 4T65 transmission like I did. This is the vehicle "hunting" in and out of overdrive on the highway (marked "D" on your dash) and you're probably on level (or close to) ground. You have two options: drive in the gear selection "3" (more fuel consumption though) or change your speed. I used to drop down to 53 MPH and it would stop, or on the highway @ 65 for it to go away.
Seems to be common in this trans around 60 MPH. Also - start saving for another vehicle or repair. This trans will start to slam into 2nd gear from a stop after it warms up (internal solenoid fix required) OR it will shudder horribly from a stop after a highway run. My fix was to replace the solenoid in the trans (there's video on YT) by pulling the right side of the drivetrain off the van and pulling the trans cover. If you go this route - you *must* ensure no -and I mean NO- dirt gets in that tranny while the cover is off.

I have a chevy uplander and you have to open the passenger door and its on the side of the dash, to the right of the glove box. You will notice a small rounf opening with just enough room for 2 fingers to go in. the whole side will come off when you pull it.
