The problem may be a faulty shift solenoid in the transmission. Have the vehicle scanned for trouble codes, which will give information to further diagnose the problem. Auto Zone and Advance Auto will do a scan. Once you have the codes, post them on this site, again with vehicle made, model, engine size, and year. We can then further assist you.

    Then vehicle is a 2004 Envoy XL SLT with a 4.2L Inline 6 Cylider, I have scanned the vehicle with my scanner and no transmission codes come up. It did have one for the MAP sensor that I reset and then drove vehicle with no change. Also some times it don't shift to third and when it does (or seems like it does) I can move the shifter to third and it seems like it kicks down. Its pulling like 4k at 40 mph.

Something missing here. Do you have a scanner or code reader? How old is it? Since you had a MAP sensor code. Some MAP sensors are built in with the MAF sensor. It can affect shifting. But not what your stating. You have a 4l60e transmission.Sounds like to me you lost a shift solenoid. I would replace both and the EPC solenoid, along with the internal transmission harness. This doesn't guaranty a fix. I use a scanner and watch what the transmission does.

Sure sounds like a slipping transmission to me. When is the last time you changed the transmission fluid? Before you go dumping $2,600 for a new transmission, I'd do a transmission fluid change first. If you do change the fluid, use Dextron 6, it's GM's new transmission fluid, much better than the fluid you have now. Not to scare you, but my transmission went out at about 100k miles, so you're doing good if it hasn't been rebuilt yet.

either the transmission bands need to be adjusted or the solenoid is bad and needs to be replaced. The first thing would be to change tranny fluid and filter.

2nd gear drops hard


Dear Madam or Sir,

this is a well known problem with the Audi-transmissions, we do have a lot of failures with them over here in Germany. ;)

There are some software updates available, in many cases this fixed the problem.

Another possibility is a faulty transmission speed sensor, this is causing the hard shift behaviour.

First you should see the dealer to check the transmission control module´s trouble code memory and to check if there is a software update available for your car.

2001 Yukon XL SLT 4 speed Auto Transmission shift problem!


Sam,

I would start with a transmission fliud and filter service.

I would then have the trasnmission checked out by a transmission shop. The transmission most of the time has the direct drum band is starting to go. The shops can rebuild it no problem, This is a very common failure wiith the trasnmission.

Good Luck
