When under a load ,like up hills, will engine rpm increase and vehicle doesn't seem to pick up speed (engine revs but speed stays the same ) is usually a sign of slippage (burnt clutches) is fluid brown and/or foamy ? the for 4L60 was electronic version of the earlier th350 and the 4L80 was the beefier of the two being like the earlier th400 if it on it's way out and not going for a rebuild i would try and locate a 4L80 or if doing a rebuild you can build the 4L60 to handle all the same demands of the 4L80 not sure on what trans your truck has as they came with both and depending on options your truck came with (like tow package)

Run the fault codes and check for faulty sensors/ servos and solenoids in the transmission
check for faulty TCM
check oil level and condition
pull the pan and clean out the filter. If there is any metal in the pan and filter then there will be a problem in the box
If not adjust the clutch packs and bands

There is a swith on the xfer case. Do this...Key on engine off select 4wd. With a 12 volt test light go to the front axle and disconnect 4 way connector and check for power to front axle actuator (About 2 inch in diameter screws into axle on pass side) I believe wire color is brown. If you have power you have a bad acuator (unscrew from axle). If you do not have power you have a bad xfer case sw or blown fuse.

Loss of engine power/transmission 2001 chevy tahoe over 65 mph

Sound's as though a previous owner installed a speed governor so that the engine would not exceed the nationwide 55-65 mph speed limit average. This most likely was a company owned vehicle or owned by someone concerned about speeding ticket's or excessive speed by a teenage driver. It can be uninstalled by an experienced mechanic. Unless this poses a problem while driving on an interstate, you may wish to leave it as is.

My 1999 Tahoe skips when i turn my wheels sharp going real slow in 2 wheel drive and not in 4wheel drive

This can be caused by worn out fluid inside the 4 wheel drive transfer case, have the fluid changed, it takes DEXRON 6 ATF. The fluid should be changed every 30,000 miles sonner is you use the 4 wheel drive often. There is a drain plug and a fill plug on the rear of the case at the rereat of the transmission. Fill to just below the plug threads.

1992 chev blazer tahoe lt.. 4 wheel drive worked last year. Tried to engage it this year for first time and would not go into 4Lo or 4Hi. Was in neutral. Start vehicle and green light on 4wheel option...

not a fuse if you have power to switch,if your 4wheel light does come on and is not blinking,check the little motor on the transfer case,tap it while someone tries the switch,it might just be stuck from not being use,if it doesn't free its self you may need to replace it.

Service 4wheel drive light on (dashboard)can I change out the fluid? after driving just a couploe of miles the service light comes on.Took a sample of transfer case fluid and can't quite tell...

The service 4 wheel drive light is indicating a part failure in the 4 wheel drive system.
Take your vehicle to your local Auto Zone or Advance Auto Parts and ask them to scan your Tahoe for trouble codes. The code will help to determine what the component failure is and you can start diagnosing at that point.
Write the code down and reply back, we can go from there.
Good luck.
