Question about 2005 Chevrolet Avalanche

Open Question

Can the solenoids be replaced in a transmission instead of replacing the whole transmission?

The truck starts jerking when driving for awhile at 60+. Does fine at lower spends. Replaced the MAF sensor. Does a little better. Had transmission rebuilt about a year and a half ago.

it is possibly the throttle position sensor(tps) malfunctioning. basically the computer or "brain" of the car thinks the throttle is in a different position than it really is and automatically makes adjustments to fuel, air ect.... based on these false readings from the sensor thus causing the engine to react a little different when you expect to have power.

1997 ford expedition wont engage in foward or backward

That happened to my old truck, an 04 dodge, and I said to myself " chancery, old chap, this must mean a new transmission" , I was mistaken. The solenoid pack in the tranny was bad. I had that replaced for a fraction of the cost of a new tranny and never once had another transmission problem.

Traction warning light came on while pulling up to stop light and car starting jerking then quit. I pulled over and didn't find anything wrong so I drove it home. I repalced the theromstat and anti-freeze...

From what you described, it sound like your TCC (torque converter clutch) is not disengaging. TCC apply solenoid circuit shorted to ground, TCC solenoid blockage (easy fix in pan), or TC broken (must remove trans and replace TC).

You should be able to take it to a transmission shop and have them test drive the car to evaluate the transmission and can scan the PCM for the DTC codes that the engine service light is indicating.

Thank you for using Fixya and keep us posted.

Jerking about every 4 minutes while driving down the road.

Jerking is usually caused by the engine misfiring or the transmission not working right. I would start with a good tune up if one hasn't been do in awhile

Car jerks while driving one time will next time

Your car has a lock-up torque converter in the transmission. It locks-up only in high gear. It is supposed to disengage at lower speeds. Yours is not disengaging. There is probably a valve in the transmission ?hanging up?. The valve body will have to be removed and cleaned paying special attention to the TCC solenoid. The TCC solenoid may have to be replaced.

I have a 2005 Impala with a 3800 V-6 auto trans. when I come to a stop ,it jerks one time when I take off.Can you help me figger out the problem?

The transmission has not geared it self all the way to first gear and is trying to start off in second, once the car starts to move it gears back down to first gear which gives you the jerking motion you feel. Easy fix, the shift solenoid may be stuck due to dirt in the fluid and the transmission needs to be serviced, and or the solenoid may need to be replaced and the boost valve. Have the transmission serviced and have them check the transmission line pressure which would indicate if the boost valve is worn and the solenoid is getting stuck or check valve. Good luck and this should cost you around $150.00 in total so call around.

Open pressure solenoid?

If the shop ran a test that coded the pressure switch they should not charge you for replacing a good part with a good part. If the part is regulated by a vacuum line, the shop should check the vacuum source. You may be alright with the shop because they tried to fix only what was wrong instead of the whole transmission.
This to me is a good sign. At 60 you are in top gear and/or overdrive. This limits the search to an area inside the transmission.
