SOURCE: 97 gmc pickup with automatic transmission trouble

1st thing to do is test the system for codes, the problem is most likely a failed or stuck shift solenoid indside the trans, have you ever serviced the trans, sometimes a fluid and filter cahnge will cure these kinds of issues.

SOURCE: transmission on my 2000 chevy k2500 4x4 pickup

your transmission has possibly been rebuilt with stronger springs put in. No worries. have been running mine for along while without any problems. Better this than slipping, but it is a bit annoying.

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.

Trying to find out where the reverse light switch is on a 77 chevy pickup with granny lo 4 spd

It's on the side of the transmission. There should be two 2 wire conections on the side. One is your neutral safety switch and the other is the reverse light switch. They either screw out or the have a bolt and fork holding them in.disconnect one of them and try to start it in gear. If it will start then the other one is the reverse light switch. if not then the one you pulled is it.

Whining noise when engaging 1st or reverse.

i had a nissan pickup that would whine in all gears except started out with 1st then reverse then went to the rest...solution was new transmission...or rebuild cause the syncronizers or the gears them selves are being chewed up...the new transmission was cheaper then a rebuild. or take it to somewhere that will do free diag on the transmission.
