Hi :) Sound like a rebuild is coming. The transmission in that truck is 4L60-E and they have a habit of doing this from ware. What happen's is that the pressure regulator and boost valves get sloppy in the pump and the pressure drops and burns out the 3-4 clutch pack and another thing that can happen if there is not any burnt smell to the fluid is a steel 1/4 inche ball could have got stuck in the valve body seperator plate and is not allowing fluid pressure against the 3-4 clutch pack piston.Take it in to transmission specialist he might be able to save it.

    So you dont think it has nothing to do with the powertrain control modules?

    No but there is a 2-3 shift solenoid in the bottom of the pan that the powertrain control runs but you would have clean fuild. The solienoid is a on and off solenoid if it has a orange connector. When measured with a ohm meter should read between 20 and 30 ohms if you get any other reading replace it.If the connector is grey it is a PWM connector and the ohms should be between 10 to 15 ohms.

Transmission wont shift low 2 second , alredy change trans


I came across this problem before in my case it turned out to be the TPS sensor. I also had a problem like this and it was the Park Natural switch. The ECM could only see park so it would not let the trans shift. These things are easy to check with a scan tool. Good Luck :-)

Have you checked the fluid level? Plus the color of the fluid. It could just need a transmission fluid & filter change.

My transmission slips going through second gear if i get my foot in it just a little bit, and it doesnt always go into reverse. if i shift into reverse and it doesnt shift, i have to shift to neutral then...


this problem is a common failure associated with your shift solenoinds inside your tranny. of course a shop is not gonna tell you this because by the time you wanna get it repaired it is usually too late and have already cause damage to your clutch pack and internal parts, thats the main reason why a shop wont mess with just replacing your shift solenoid (aka valve bodie)

Sounds like the PRNDL switch on the side of the transmission. Be sure and clear the code before trying to start after replacing it.

Transmission


hello, your truck will not shift from second to third . If it wont shift to third it is going to need new clutchs or seals installed in the transmission that is a common problem with the 4L60e transmission.
