Has the 'Check Engine' light come on? I had this problem at 30,000 miles and the trouble codes set were transmission component slipping. Ultimately required replacement of the transmission.

1994 Astro Van Transmission.....at cold start, transmission seems to shift fine...after a while there's a bit of delay when shifting from 1st to 2nd. Any ideas?


I would check the fuild level and make sure the fluid is bright red. You may also want to replace the transmission filter. Also check the modulator, if so equipped.

4L60E won't shift to 3rd on 1995 Chevy Astro 2wd


do the pin point tests, these start witjh running a trouble code test, autozone and kragen will do this for free, if u haven't had the trans apart then cross out any crossed wiring issues, but I do think you will find a problem with the 2-3 shift solenoid, either the solenoid has failed or the connector has a problem on the outside of the trans.
