Question about 1994 Chevrolet K1500

1 Answer

Transmission will not shift

I Installed a 1995 4l80e transmission into a 1994 chevy k1500 with a 6.5 diesel.I have reverse and a forward gear,but will not shift into higher gears. Do i have to change anything else in the transmission besides the shift shaft? I changed the shift shaft because my park neutral safety switch is in the steering colunm instead of on the side of the transmission.

Check the Vehicle Velocity Sensor (V V S)-(Speed Sensor) or the wire harness to the VVS. IF the ECM is not getting a signal from the V V S, the PCM can not give the signal to switch gears. The V V S is on the drivers side of the end ot the transmission that is held on by one bolt. Best thing to do is to have the truck scanned at Auto Zone for a DTC code and to confirm that the V V S has gone bad and they can give you the step by step instruction to replacing the sensor and takes about 15 min to do. Good luck and keep me posted. Keep an eye on the transmission fluid, make sure you don't run the transmission to hard and burn it out over a $40.00 sensor which is better then $1,800 for a transmission replacement.

My 1995 2500 chevy trans shifts good from forward to reverse but don't shift to any higher forward gears sat for a couple months before that no issues this truck has the 6.5 turbo


Thats not good !
I suggest that the truck be started and warmed up a while.
Then try to drive it around a bit in the yard or where ever.
If that doesnt work out the suspected clog, then I would roll under the truck and look to see if something hasn't eatten away at the wire harness for the trans.

Chevy aveo 2007 5door, shift handle feels lose, car goes


if its a 5 speed, yes the shifting is loser than normal cars. the reverse is all jacked up.. if its anything like my 06 aveo when you shift into reverse you have to lift the little circle thing on your shifter up ad act like your putting it into first.. If it grinds try doing it slower. I HATE this transmission. Chevy did a horrible job on picking it. I always grind reverse no matter what

Vechile will not shift into park or reverse


The first thing to check is the linkage. Sometimes the linkage will slip, Block the wheels on the car (both front and rear) to prevent rolling. Locate the shift linkage on your transmission, and loosen the nut. You should be able to move the shift lever through all the gears, including "P" and "R". Place the transmission shift lever in "Park" (on the transmission) then move the shift lever (inside the car) in the "P" position and tighten the nut (not a bad idea to use a new locking nut here) You should now be able to shift through all gears. If this does not work, you have a more serious problem that may include a worn or broken belt or broken parking pawl inside the transmission.

Check the linkage at the transmission. Have somebody move the selector while you watch the linkage move. It might be out of adjustment for reverse, or be binding up.

94 s 350 diesel, wont go into reverse


problems not related, try replacing the stage pistons on your tranny. Get from buymbparts.com or autohausaz.com. If that doesnt do it you need transmission work. Sounds like your strip fuses and fuses need to be replaced due to corrosion at the terminals. also pull out the gage cluster and clean the corrosion off the grounding point.
