Mine is similar, it bumps into 2nd and third after about 10 miles. I heard there may be a cylinoid problem with gm transmissions?

Define bump. What you may define as "second and third" may be TCC lockup (torque convereter clutch). Your TCC is PWM (pulse widtrh modulated) and should be applied in increments. There is a TCC solenoid in the pump body, and a TCC control solenoid in the valve body. Your TCC control solenoid MAY be the problem, but the screen on the solenoid may be dirty. Or the converter clutchor solenoid may be Since 2nd is band applied and 3rd is clutch applied, only a force motor failure would let them both be harsh, and if that was the case even going into neutral/drive or neutral/reverse would be harsh.

Truck works fine in R, 1, and 2 nothing in 3 or D. 2006 Silverado V-6 automatic 1/2 ton


Hey Anon, Yes, drive it to the tranny shop..plan to leave it... sounds like you are in for a rebuild.. this is typical for GM RWD transmissions.. I have seen TOO many do this same thing,, (I have had TWO in for this... vehicles I inherited that were not maintained)..GM transmissions on RWD's must have the fluid and filter changed every 50K - 75K and a complete fluid exchange and filter replacement every 120K -150K MINIMUM for them to last..usually cost around $1200 - $1400.. sorry.. Good luck!

Losing oil, no visible leaks. 120,000 miles


Hm. In my experience if you lose oil at the rate of 1 qt. per 800 mi. it's going somewhere. Actually, if you lose 1 qt. per 1000 mi. and change your oil every 3,000 mi. it's under $10 in oil you have to buy to keep it topped off, and some places say that's there's nothing wrong.

But, your case is a little more serious.

I think that it's probably leaking past the rings and/or valves and the catalytic converter is eating up the oil, so you see no blue smoke, like you would in a car that has no converter (I'm assuming you have a catalytic converter on your car as my 1981 Honda had).

After 100,000 mi. little irregularities in the piston cylinders can develop, and seals can gradually degrade. So, this is normal for that kind of mileage, although there are people who get over 400,000 mi. on their cars with just regular maintenance and driving highway mi.

You might want to try one of those slower burn oils designed for cars with 75,000 mi. and above. That might slow the burn off of oil down to acceptable levels.

Good luck with it.

2001 Oldsmobile Aurora Rear Rattle


If it's making a clunk noise when hitting bumps, check the mounting plates and bushings that hold the rear end to the frame. GM made these plates out of aluminum and the bolts that go through the plate and the bushings rot out and the rear end slams against the frame.
