Without knowing the specific year and type of car i will have to give you a generic answer.If you still have reverse the the most likely cause is a bad shift solenoid.Depending on which transmission you have it could also be a broken band.Most 4 speed transmission have two shift solenoids and a combination of on/off between the two solenoids give you the different gears.Both solenoids off usually gives you 3rd gear (limp mode).If you give the specifics on your car I can probaly help you more.Thanks

The flush is something you never want to do,
as you found out

You may have sediment in the shift solenoids,
from however the flushing was done

Your only hope will be an honest trans shop,
to work on the problem

I recently performed a transmission fluid flush (pan and torque converter) and swapped out the filter due to some problems I was having shifting from 1st to 2nd. After changing the fluid, the problem was...


One thing that is rarely posted is any repairs and or instructions on doing so. For instance the Solenoid pack is often suggested as a replacement, and you can buy them on e-bay, but no instruction on how to replace one. Amazing. I can fix anything! Just take it to the Tranny Shop..... Makes me think that the only answers put on here are by Tranny Shops.

You may first want to check the condition of your transmission oil if it needs draining and replacing. If that checks out OK, you may want to check the solenoid on the transmission. See if it needs cleaning or replacing. If the solenoid is ok, you may want to check the transmission for the gear valves if they need cleaning. The valve for each gear that is not working may need cleaning.

2001 Yukon XL SLT 4 speed Auto Transmission shift problem!


Sam,

I would start with a transmission fliud and filter service.

I would then have the trasnmission checked out by a transmission shop. The transmission most of the time has the direct drum band is starting to go. The shops can rebuild it no problem, This is a very common failure wiith the trasnmission.

Good Luck
