The PCM controls the overdrive in this transmission. I would recommend that you get the codes by running a diagnostic on the car. Once you have the codes, then you will be able to determine if the issue is with the PCM, or if it is in the transmission. To get the codes you will cycle the ignition key oin and off 3 times while the od button is off, then count the od light when it flashes to get the code. This can be quire cumbersome, and may take a minute for you to get the correct codes. Make sure that you are uniterrupted, and have a pen and paper handy to jot the codes down.

  1. Turn ignition key ON and OFF three times, finally leaving the key in the ON position. Leave the Overdrive Off Switch in the normal overdrive (ON) position.
  2. Immediately begin counting the number of flashes displayed by the Overdrive Off Switch indicator lamp.
  3. Flash codes will correspond to Powertrain Control Module codes in duration and spacing.
  4. A code 55 identifies the end of flash code transmission.

Shifting prroblems 3rd to 4th 2000 silverado 1500 acts like its in neutral sometime when it goes into 4th gear you can turn truck off thenit will shift good for awhile again

There isn't one answer for this topic. The 4L60E transmission isn't a bad trani but if the fluid isn't changed on-time. Debris will accumulate inside the Valve Body and clog/restrict screens and shift solenoids. I think that you will want to first look at the fluid level and condition. Look at the repair/service history (when was the fluid and filter last changed?). If the service has bean done then send it in for repair. There may be one of several things going on inside. The fluid pressure will need to be checked. The pump will need to be tested. The valve-body may need to be dropped down and inspected for obstructions. My last suggestion would be to look at the air filter, fuel system and the exhaust. A clogged air or fuel filter will affect transmission performance. Also a restriction inside the CAT or the Muffler can affect it as well. I hope that helps. If you have more details or questions. Please let me know. Good luck.

I dont think I have a 4th gear!!!

If you had 4th gear or overdrive before you changed the fluid and filter, I would say that is the problem. Some of the sludge and dirt in the trans has probably shifted and is now blocking a passage in the valve body.
That is assuming all of the solenoids and components are still in place.
Its also possible something happened when you replaced the distributor but I doubt it. You might check and make sure the cables to the throttle body are in place and working, and all of the wiring to the trans is connected.

I have a 1996 Chevy tahoe it Starts and run fine, just doesnt want to shift in to 3rd or 4th gear?

Check to make sure that the fluid level is correct. There are shift solenoids inside your transmission that could be bad or it could be more serious internal problems. You can't really tell without a scanner. You could remove your tranny oil pan and see if there is a lot of sediment and chunks in the bottom of it. That is not a good sign if there is. If your oil is dark and has burnt smell that is not good either. When you pull your pan and filter off you will then be able to see the shift solenoid. They are easy to change but again you don't really know if they are bad without a scan tool.

Just replaced trannie(auto) in 1993 escort, it has a little hesitation when shifting gears and the new oil smells burnt and is frothy on the tip. the level is low could the low fluid level be the problem?

YES! But your tranny has a BAND for first gear, and clutches for 2nd, third, and if equipted, 4th. The bands are usually the cause of the "burnt smell." The foam is cause by fluid aggitation. DO NOT JUST ADD FLUID. Drain the fluid in the tranny case, and replace the filter, and the fluid. I suspect that the salvaged tranny may have a burned 1st gear band.
