Question about Chevrolet Silverado 1500
assume you checked the fluid level and color already as that’s the first
thing to check. It should be clear cherry red in color and at the right
level with the engine warm, running and in park. I suspect you have
either a clogged valve problem . If so, you should first do the simplest and easiest thing and run
some Seafoam Trans Tune in the transmission for a few days and then flush the
old ATF fluid and replace the fluid and filter.
The Seafoam will clean out the varnish or gunk that may be causing the valve or clutch pack to stick. Try replacing the old ATF with a compatible synthetic ATF fluid like Mobil1 or Redline as they are a bit slippery than the regular ATF Fluid and will further help clean deposits out. Remember that just like oil changes, the transmission fluid should be changed every 30K miles or every 2 years, whichever comes first! Good luck!
