98 Chevy K1500 is hard to shift out of park

Usually on hot days, My 98 Chevy K1500 is very hard to shift out of park. I normally have to sit there for a few min with my foot on the brake, trying to shift before it actually shifts. If the truck has been sitting all nite, it generally won't have a problem, but if I've ran the truck and it has gotton to normal operating temp and I turn it off. It'll be hard to shift back into a drive gear. Any thoughts?

'93 chevy k1500 will not move in reverse. truck


You may have to check the valve for the transmission. Each of the gears has valves which sends the fluid to engage the gear. It may need cleaning or is faulty. Normally this happens when you have debris or dirt in your oil.

My 98 chevy k1500 has the electonic push button 4 wheel drive that does not work i have replaced it but still get nothing shows power but does not enguage


there is a transfere case shift control module . (think it is under the passager side dash kick pannel ) this module recives a signal from the 4wd switch that tells it to shift the transferecase into 4wheel, there is also a motor on the trasferecase too . Now its hard to test these with out a scan tool because you need to see if each component is sending and recievcing the proper comand .

Impala won't shift into park


to get the key out just set the parking brake and put in neutral, but i agree with the first solution probably bad selector cable or linkage.

98 Chevy Lumina wont pick up


Sounds, Like It's just low on trans fluid.
Check the trans be sure, It's full.
Check when the trans is hot.
If It's full you, May try to service the
transmission. Make sure a new trans filter is
installed.( It may be cloged)
If that does not fix the problem chances
are the trans is Done.

My 1996 Chevy K1500 is shifting hard from 1st to 2nd when it's hot and the Service Engine light came on. It goes out and problem goes away when it's cooled down. What's wrong?


your transmission is overheating change the fluid and filter, and also check your cooling lines for that, you also may want to check the cooler itself

98 chevy cheyene 1500 automatic -hard to shift-


Loosen the bolt thats on the trans that holds the linkage on..Some one may have tightened it to much..Or grab a hold of it and see if it is sloppy and moves around..If so its loose inside trans..Another possible cause the linkage from column to trans may be binding up when trying to shift..Hope this helps you and Have A Great Night

98 Chevy K1500, four wheel drive floor shifter won't engage.


I had the same problem with my 98 z71, I put the floor shifter in neutral, and let the truck roll backwards a little bit, BE CAREFUL, with the floor shifter in neutral the truck will roll, regardless if the shifter on the steering column is in Park, use caution, make sure there is no one around your truck and you are inside of it and out of the path of doors and tires,
