The speedo is electronic, u will have to pull the unit out and send it to a GM authorized repair center like speed-o-tach inc.

Sounds like the speed sensor on the rear axle.

SOURCE: transmission not shifting correctly

It sounds like you have a shift linkage problem. Did this start after going off road? If so, check for damage. You MIGHT be able to do some repairs yourself but would be better off going to a transmission shop. If the problem didn't start after off-roading or other damage, there are several possible issues that could be causing the problem: 1) A broken band; 2) a bad vacuum modulator; 3) leaking vacuum lines; 4) blockage or broken springs in the valve body. In any case, you are better off going to a reputable transmission shop.

SOURCE: 1993 GMC 1500 4x4 poor shifting

this may be due to a poor connection at the vehicle speed sensor on the transmission, pull the connector off the sensor and clean it with contact cleaner, if the problem persists replace the speed sensor. there are 2 diff ones here is a picture of the most common one for an auto trans.3deea43.jpg

Hello
Try this. Disconnect the transmission linkage under the hood at the
colum. Now try moving the shift lever,if it functions normaly,check the
linkage from the colum to the transmission to see if it is bent or bound up. If you still can't shift with the linkage disconnected,the problem is
inside the colum. The easiest fix is to get a used colum.
If you have a cable. Disconnect it at the transmission first. if it still won't
shift, disconnect the cable at the colum. If it shifts, replace the cable.
If not. You're back to replacing the colum. In either case, block the wheels, and make sure the linkage connection at the transmission moves freely. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Speedometer stopped workin and transmission wont shift out of first


The tachometer acts as the trigger for auto shifting the gears. Since the speedometer has conked out, it will assume your car speed to be in that range and therefore not shifting up as usual. Replace the speedometer and after doing that check the response on their computerized diagnostics to check the correct response is read by the chip which triggers the gear change.........................sodeep
