    Does it feel like the transmission is grabbing then letting loose, then grabbing again?

  • robertoz_2 Oct 04, 2010

    Well the fliud level is ok but, maybe I did not explain very well. The Engine runs fine while driving forward. When the van is place in R. The engine starts to lope and the engine it self feels and sounds like it is causing the whole van to jolt. Engine then begins to stall if the gas pedal is pressed futher down. This only happens in R .Thank you, Rob

Check the linkage at the transmission. also It might be out of adjustment for reverse, or be binding up. clean the filter and check and if necessary replace the transmission fluid and seals.
Also the stalling in reverse could be caused by the movement of the engine in the opposite direction due to the reverse torque combined with a loose ground cable on the engine.

Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation

Check your Transmission Fluid level - if its up, then your reverse clutches are worn beyond service limits.

Hello Robert. What you are describing is a transmission problem, often related to either low transmission fluid or loose bands within the transmission itself. If you have an AAMCO transmission repair shop near by, go there otherwise, drive to any transmission shop and have them check it for you. Joe

1990 Chevy Van with a 350 small block that has a mind of it's own.


Try to get it running a bit to warm up the exhaust. Take a point and shoot thermometer and take the temp of the cat. If temps exceed 400 degrees I would start to suspect a plugged cat.

My 1992 chevy g20 van surges and i'm not sure exactly why. I changed the pcv valve, fuel filter, spark plugs, and air filter. What are some possibilities


My first thought would be a vacuum leak in one of the hoses. Rubber hoses get brittle with age and even a small crack in a hose may cause surging. Happened to me in a Lumina.

Chevy 350 express van 2000 runs great idles rough


If it does not do it in park or neutral, it could be a number of things. One being a sticking Torque Converter Clutch solenoid (TCC). It could be that it needs a simple tune-up. How often does this problem happen?

Engine surges at rpm over 1500


Look for a vacuum leak (lines and intake), Is the engine light on, were any codes present? A faulty EGR or IAC could cause the problem too. Check the throttle cable for any restrictions.
