I suspect that the oil pump is not producing sufficient pressure to do the job. have a pressure test done to check this. It is possible when reassembling the unit that there is a leak in the system (missing-damaged seals ,gaskets ) that is allowing oil to squirt of a join (loose bolts). Recheck the band and clutch pack adjustment now that it has been run.

SOURCE: my transmission slips going through second gear if

this problem is a common failure associated with your shift solenoinds inside your tranny. of course a shop is not gonna tell you this because by the time you wanna get it repaired it is usually too late and have already cause damage to your clutch pack and internal parts, thats the main reason why a shop wont mess with just replacing your shift solenoid (aka valve bodie)

SOURCE: 04 Silverado no second gear

check color and smell of trans fluid, if not bright red and had a pugnant odor then the trans needs to come out and torn down, You can try a fuel filter that can cause a driveability problem

SOURCE: 4l60e slips in 3rd and 4th

There are to many things that can cause this problem, best thing to is go get the ECM scanned for DTC codes at a transmission shop or Auto zone or Parts Source since they scan for free.
The ECM should have DTC code in it's memory on how the transmission is Performing and have the Transmission line tested for Fluid pressure.
Good luck and hope this helps. Oh and also ways check with more then on transmission shop if there tell you that you need a new Transmission,
It could be a simple as the transmission filter falling off causing the lost of transmission fluid pressure. Check the transmission fluid too.

SOURCE: My 2001 Chevy Silverado 1500 2WHLDR 5.3L transmission slips from 2500 rpm's in second gear and will not shift into 3rd

Is there anyway you can pull a code? Because it can be solenoid related,for this type of transmission the speed sensor (VSS) is prone to do this,also how is the transmission fluid is it brownish or dark dark burnt , because if it is its a mechanical failure.I can pull a code if in T.O

Over Drive slipping, First Dragging, just rebuilt.


very commendable to expand your mechanical knowledge by taking on something you would normally steer clear of
how to fix is not the problem but what to fix
when a ratio slips that indicates insufficient pressure to apply the clutch or band--- problem servo/ solenoid for that section
dragging indicates that the pressure is not being release fully or trying to engage 2 ratios --again servo / solenoid problems
a small part installed the incorrect way around, a spring on the wrong side
bad wiring , faulty TCm
There are very good automatic repair manuals available that have photos of how and where parts are fitted that I would suggest to you as video , while good, will not have the full details to trouble shoot
what you lack now but will pick up very quickly are the little "tricks of the trade" and you can get them by talking to transmission repair shops , reading repair manuals and experience
don't give as it is repairable , just have patience

Reverse out on 94 Chevy 1500


Look under the truck and check for loose or broken wires leading to the transmission, if this looks ok you probably have an issue with the transmission electrol control module, these units are about $100.00 used from a junk yard and you will be taking a chance since this may not solve the problem, make sure the transmission filter is not clogged or fluid level is low.
