Question about 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

1 Answer

My '99 Silverado 1500 Z71 has been an awesome dependable truck with over 225000 miles. But we've suddenly lost the reverse gear. The drive gears work fine & the tranny fluid is fine so what would cause this? Is this the beginning of the end for my tranny?

No reverse, here are few things you can try before needing to take it to a tranny shop. The 4l60e trans is a fully electronic trans. And being so the problem could be as simle as the reverse shift solenoid has shortted out. Along that same line the reverse valve could be stuck and or the little screen that is attatched to the mid plat could be clogged and in order fix this problemyou need to drop out the valve boby and for the most part rebuild the reverse circute.

Now for the hard stuff. Other problems you could look at.
imput housing assembly - 3-4 apply ring stuck in applied position.
- forward clutch not releasing
- turbine shaft seals missing,cut or damaged.

manual linkage - not adjusted

oil pump assembly - retainer and ball assembly missing or damaged.
- stator shaft seal rings or ring grooves damaged.
- stator shaft sleeve scored or damaged.
- revers boost valve stuck, damaged or misassembled.
- cup plug missing.
- restricted oil passage.
- faces not flat.
- converter clutch apply valve stuck.

valve body assembly - 2-3 shift valve stuck.
- manual linkage not adjusted.
- spacer plate and gaskets incorrect, misposition or damaged.

reverse input clutch - clutch plate worn.
- reverse input houeing and drum assembly cracked at weld.
- clutch plate retaining ring out of groove.
- return spring asembly retaining ring out of groove.
- piston deformed or dished.
- seals cut or damaged.
- retainer and ball assembly not sealing.
- restricted apply passage.

lo and reverse clutch - clutch plates worn.
- clutch plate retaining ring mispositioned.
- porosity in piston.
- seals damaged.
- return spring assembly retaining ring mispositioned.
- restricted apply passage.

case - cover plate gasket missing or damaged.

- porosity.

now thhis came from my 4l60 service book.

My 2000 Chevy silverado 1500 z71 wont move. used 4wd then tried to put back into 2wd it would shift into any gear. Put back in park it makes a grinding noise


Sounds like your transfer case in neutral. You have to engage the transfer case back into gear then shift selector to drive or reverse. When your transfer is in neutral the transmission will not operate. Good luck.

That was a good suggestion by Molson. Also, if you have been doing a lot of heavy hauling, have them check the strainer, which could be a problem as well.

96 chevy 1500 2WD auto OD...reverse slips


a trans rebuild will start out at about 1500 bucks and go up from there if there are a lot of damaged gears, shafts etc coould be as high as 2500 depending on whats damaged you could get a used one but unless you can change it yourself it'll probably cost around 1000 bucks as far as if the truck is worth fixing all depends on what else it needs and how much you like the truck

Differential noise when gear is place. in reverse or drive.


If it's only happening when you initially place it in those gears before going forward or reverse, your U-Joint in the rear is going bad. Replace both when you replace the one. This way you don't have to go there again when the fron U-Joint decides to go out. Cheap insurance.

I need to know what weight gear oil to use in the rear differental for a 99 chevy silverado 1500 Z71 4x4


There should be a tag on the rear that tells you the weight. It is probably sythetic oil. If there is no tag, call any Chevy dealer, ask for service dept. and they will tell you.
