1999 silverado transmission


Since the transmission shifting and torque converter lock (cruise speeds) up are computer controlled you need to have a scanner hooked up that can read Transmission control module (TCM) fault codes. Also check for engine codes as this could be a misfire, but in that case the check engine light should be flashing while the engine is misfiring and set a fault code. If no codes of any kind are present in memory when the testing is done you almost certainly have a mechanical fault in the transmission like a malfunctioning torque converter clutch, but even that should set a fault code, so have the testing done.

2002 Chevy silverado, at speeds of 60+ mph, it feels like the transmission slips or it sputters(hesitates), but only at high speeds


Are you certain that it is the transmission and not the engine misfiring? I would recommend scanning your onboard computer network to BEGIN proper diagnosis.

91 honda accord between 50 and 55 it feels like the transmission shifts up and down conststantly but the rpm only moves from 2100 rpm to 2000 rpm but over or under that speed it runs fine.


Your transmission is probably jumping in and out of "torque converter lockup". The lockup is the most efficient mode because 100% of the power from the engine goes to the wheels and is not lost in the torque converter. It only goes into lockup at higher speeds, but will jump out if the computer senses it needs more power (at the higher engine RPMs) to maintain or increase your speed. I recommend either going faster or slower if this is bothering you. :-)

I have to push the accelerator almost to the floor to get it to go in to passing gear. Motor feels weak and takes a long time to gain speed. car feels heave but the motor runs very smooth


Actually, this is normal. To 'kick down' the gear in the transmission, you should go WOT or wide open throttle.

4 cylinder motors seem to feel weaker than v-8's and are tuned to the transmission to rev higher to accomplish a certain acceleration point.

Good luck on driving.

Hesitation, misfire or "bucking" feeling


you most likely have a coil pack going bad.
This can cause an electrical spike and cause computers to reboot just like your home PC in and electrical storm,that is why the transmission acts as if it does not know which gear to go in.
You need to have someone hook up a scan tool and retrieve the trouble codes and see if there is a miss-fire code stored in memory.
