THe shift solenoids are only part of the shifting system, you still have to have proper pressure and flow. The pump could be failing also. Your ECM controls the the shifting of the trans. SO even if the soleniods are replaced thats not guranteed it will fix the problem if they are not actuating properly. How many miles, hows the fluid, has the truck been worked hard (large trailer towing)? I would start by making sure the speed sensor is working and check the wiring harness to the trans for any loose connections.

2000 silverado wont go into passing gear

Check the A and B shift solenoids in valve body. A combination of either solenoids on or off gives 4 speed selection. For instance all solenoids off gives 3rd gear for limp home. Sounds like 1 solenoid is off all the time for no 1st and 4th. Check solenoid chart to see which solenoid is on for 1st and 4th. That solenoid is either not turning on or a wiring connection between the transmission control module and that solenoid.

No overdrive

It really has to have a scanner on it to tell. But here are some things you can try. The OD button is in the off position. Try cycling it as you drive. The light could be bad and you don't know it's off. put the shifter in first gear position, up shift manually. Does it go from first to second? Second to third? You could have lost a gear. Usually first. Usual sign for this is no power take off/sluggish. All of these would throw a code. Some wont turn the check engine light on. Again a scanner is needed. Basically the toque converter clutch solenoid is not engaging..Could be internal problems... Dirty and/or the solenoid is bad.

My 2001 Chevy Silverado 1500 2WHLDR 5.3L transmission slips from 2500 rpm's in second gear and will not shift into 3rd

Is there anyway you can pull a code? Because it can be solenoid related,for this type of transmission the speed sensor (VSS) is prone to do this,also how is the transmission fluid is it brownish or dark dark burnt , because if it is its a mechanical failure.I can pull a code if in T.O

I have a 97 chevy silverado c1500 ext cab 2wd automatic the truck stopped shifting. I had a tranny rebuild done and then park reverse and neutral worked but it wouldn't shift outta 1 st. Got new shift...

1st and 3rd gear only sounds like a broken sun shell he should feel bad... The only real issue on those 96 97 transmissions is the solenoid resistance values so swap ur solenoids with the one u want to put in and it will work fine if u do ur home work first.. U got to know why they wont work thats how u find cheats... But first and third sounds like a stripped or sheared shell...was reverse gone to

1997 Chevrolet Silverado Z71 p0758 Won't shift

P0758 code is shift solenoid B electrical /2-3 shift solenoid circuit electrical, It better to inspect the wire going into the transmission they have a tendency to leak transmission fluid into the circuit make inspection for proper connection if you decide to replace the solenoid you still need to inspect the circuit for proper mating. If this solenoid fails and you wait to long to replace it you can loose the ECM due to the high power draw it takes from the ECM.

My trans will not down shift and when you take off it is in 3rd gear

Has the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) been tested for fault codes? if not get this done firs. This transmissions shifting is controlled by a computer via electric shift solenoids inside the transmission pan mounted to the valve body.

1993 Chevy Silverado will not shift in to 2nd 3rd or Overdrive.

Are you sure its stuck in first gear, Its probably in second.. It sounds like a stuck or open shift solenoid in the tranny (4L60E hydra-matic). Depending on the year and type of tranny this was a default setting to either only second or only third gear, should some electrical or transmission hydraulic fault occur. Another common problem for that year is a faulty ignition switch at the key cylinder. It will fail and not send power to the tranny (thus not powering up the shift solenoids). The default (or limp home mode) is when both solenoids are commanded off. They will be both commanded off in second gear (even when the tranny is operating normally).

My transmission slips going through second gear if i get my foot in it just a little bit, and it doesnt always go into reverse. if i shift into reverse and it doesnt shift, i have to shift to neutral then...

this problem is a common failure associated with your shift solenoinds inside your tranny. of course a shop is not gonna tell you this because by the time you wanna get it repaired it is usually too late and have already cause damage to your clutch pack and internal parts, thats the main reason why a shop wont mess with just replacing your shift solenoid (aka valve bodie)

hello, your truck will not shift from second to third . If it wont shift to third it is going to need new clutchs or seals installed in the transmission that is a common problem with the 4L60e transmission.
