    When I stop at one particular intersection near my home, then accelerate to start up again, the engine revs but the car won't move. This clears itself after about 2 to 5 seconds. This stop sign intersection is on a right curve and a very slight down grade. It has happened maybe 8 or 10 times in the past 18 months. Transmission behaves perfectly otherwise.

You need to bring it in for a transmission inspection/overhaul. The bands are not catching, and the fliud is turning black because it its burning up and iverheating.

My 1996 GMC Suburban has 170600 miles on it. In the last week, it drives fine until you travel about 1/4 mile & reach 30 mph. Then, you loose acceleration. When you push the gas, the engine just revs....

Try dropping the tranny fluid and changing the tranny filter and filling with fresh fluid. Sounds like the tranny is sleeping between shifts.

hi chris, this is one of the first fuzzy logic auto boxes to be fitted to a european car,followed by vw(zf make them,as do borg warner)
try this, just to make yourself aware of whats happening,without touching the gas,put the car in drive and let it accelerate itself ,right upto top gear,stop, then using 1/3 pedal,do the same,stop, then floor it,you will feel the differances right away,(the car will try to make you drive more smoothly,saving gas).other than checking fluid level,
every 6k,the only fix,if needed, is a rebuild.
but,if you know why it baulks in 2nd,(big drop in revs,between 1st and 2nd),you will feel better.
this is not in any handbooks.

I have a 2000 GMC sierra 2500 truck. The guy I bought it from had a new transmition put in it. After driving a while I noticed that the tranny wouldn't shift into low gears 1st & 2nd on comand. and...

-----check possible tps [throttle position sensor ]circuit for damage or faulty sensor----if good check the fuses and trans harness for shorts damage or disconnection,check o2 sensors wiring possible ground to exhaust ,or internal leak 2nd gear apply circuit[servo assembly or 1-2 accumulator] or poor pump pressure

Slower engine speed in 4wd mode, 1st or 2nd gear (auto trans)

mcdevito75 here, I would figure yes, if your shifting while in motion, definetly yes, when you shift your changeing gear ratios in the 4 wheel drive or the transmission, this will cause the engine to slow but also make the gas pedal moe responsive.If you feel or hear this slowing down of the engine while standing still (at a red light) it"s most likely the computer contolled sensor in the tranny. I woulkd still check with my local shop for their advice too.

2nd gear crunch

first of all you shouldn't be reving that high to change gears. that's too high. secondly if it's grinding only during the change from 1st to 2nd gear you may have a problem with the gears not being aligned synchronizers worn out, bearings worn out, etc. take to reputable transmission shop to get it diagnosed and repaired. it sounds like the synchronizers are a problem there. and you may have metal in your fluid now that it's been grinding which will affect the rest of the transmission. if you are speed shifting as in racing, you are not doing your transmission any good. you probably don't have a transmission built to do that if it's the original factory tranny... meaning you did a major NO NO to your tranny and are tearing it up speed shifting when it isn't built for racing.
