Question about 1999 Oldsmobile Silhouette

1 Answer

2004 silhouette jumps in 1st gear shifting to second

Tranny runs fine once past first gear. On occation, when I stop at a stop sign, hit the gas, the van will move, but then 'buck' or hard shift into second. After playing with it a lot, it seems like first gear takes off, but then let's the engine rev some unengaged, then shifts, causing a hard lockup on second gear.

Any thoughts out there?

Have the diagnosis performed by certified transmission shop. Possibly bad solenoid in transmission.

1995 cadilac deville has problem shifting from 1 to 2 gear


You don't have torque converter shudder. You don't even mention that in your original post! You def had a solenoid issue. My 94 STS did the same thing. I only had reverse, 1st and 2nd gear. Wouldn't shift outa 2nd period. It was a $200 solenoid repair. Car had a 160K on it when that happened. I have almost 170k on it now. Shifts and works fine. you don't need the tranny replaces ad josavv63 indicates.
