Question about 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

2 Answers

After sitting for a couple of years, our Chevy 1500 Silverado will only go in reverse, but won't move forward at all. What is the troubleshooting procedure? We live in a rural area and would at least like to drive it to repair shop. Thanks, bunting

Unless you can remove and clean the valve body
and that is not a guarrantee that most of the internal
seals are not stuck,your best bet will be to flatbed it
to your favorite repair shop.

2007 Chevy Silverado, will go in reverse, but will not go forward? Even when I push on the gas, the truck will not go forward.

You said you hit something. Carefully check the transmission linkage to make sure that it is properly engaging. Crawl underneath and have someone move the linkage while you examine the movement. If something got misaligned when you hit whatever, it is conceivable that the tranny is not properly engaging due to this.
Could be a simple fix. Good luck.

The brake drum may be rusted to the shoes. Try tapping on the drum all around with a hammer, trying to get the drum to pull off. Taking the axle out is somewhat complicated on these models, however I would rather believe you have a brake drum problem.
