Question about Chevrolet K3500

1 Answer

1998 chevy 2500 6.5 turbo diesel 4l80e transmission. was driving along fine came to a stop at a light on a hill. when went to take off again truck would not go forward. after about a minute or so it finally took off, came to another light again on a hill when tried to take off from stopped position again would not go. If it was a manual I would say that the clutch had gone out, but being an automatic I don't know if the problem is in the torque converter or the tranny itself? had truck towed home. later the next day tried it and it moved but seemed rev up alittle higher than ussual. haven't driven since. help please

I think that if it's a torque converter problem, usually they leak or don't lock up at highway speeds.

Your transmission is behaving badly, and I think it needs to be rebuilt, where they will change all of the solenoids inside as well as the clutches, and so on and so forth. All wearable parts will be replaced if you go for the rebuild option.

The first thing I would check is the transmission fluid level and to see if it is the right type.

How may miles do you have on it?

Will a 1994 chevy 4l80e 4wd swap into a 1995 GMC


Yes they will swap out nicely, the years where they made the change is in 1997 and the only difference is the transmission end housing has a different bolt pattern but has the same internal parts. You may also want to swap out the servo's with a corvette servo. The cost is around $45.00 and can be done without dropping the transmission pan, this will make your transmission shift firmer and will have less clutch slip[ between gear shifts. Good luck and hope this information helps.
