Don't know if you have access to a scanner or not but what can be looked at is the manual lever position sensor where the linkage goes in theside of the trans numbers should stay steady in every gear if not it's going bad . if no scanner you could take the gamble and try a new sensor there about 60.00 hope this helps.

Does a 2006 Suburban have an exterior fuel filter ?


No it does not have an external fuel filter,downshifting going up hills sounds normal and the best way to check a cat is with a gas sniffer,or a scanner that monitors both pre and post o2 sensors

1997 Chevy suddenly loses speedometer and downshifts to 1st


Sounds like the transmission speed sensor or the wiring from there back to the computer.
But you should have a trouble code for the speed sensor.

I want to see a picture or a diagram of where the vacuum line for reverse is on a 2001 2500 Chevrolet silverado


there is no vacuum line for reverse. the transmission uses fluid and silanoids inside for reverse. if reverse isn't working the low/reverse band is blown. you can test it by driving and manually downshifting into 1 and if it downshifts through all gears but wont downshift into 1st (feel the truck slowing down from engine braking) then your band is broken. time for a trans rebuld

97 Honda Odyssey Auto transmission downshifts


Try checking your timing to solve the ping problem, your timing might be too far advanced. For the downshifting problem, I have this same issue on my odyssey, On the top of your efi manifold you will see 2 wires that control your throttle, One of them extends to the transmission and basically lets it know when you are pressing firmly on your gas pedal, telling it to downshift. I would adjust it so the cable has some more slack in it, therefore requiring a harder press on the pedal before downshift, and hopefully a sooner upshift. You can also slightly adjust idling problems if the van is running high while in park or drive while sitting. As for the gas vapor purge code, I would first try replacing the egr valve, its only a couple bucks and takes no more than 5 minutes.

89 chevy 2500 silverado


that was old school , vehicles with the turbo 400 transmission are equipped with an ECM controlled downshift system , when vehicle is at speeds below 70 mph a forced (detent) downshift is possible by fully depressing the accelerator ,when the ECM detects a drop in manifold vacuum (high map sensor reading) the downshift control relay is energized by the ECM , the relay detects battery voltage to the detent solenoid in the transmission to open open an oriface to force the transmission to downshift ..... if yours is not working i would first check the downshift relay , under hood , picture is so bad i can't tell , looks like on the firewall more to the passenger side , next to fuel pump relay , if it needs more diag than that maybe you should get an estimate for repair from a trans shop or such , hope ya fix it , cheers .
