Make sure your tranmission oil level is correct. You need to check it with the vehicle warm and running with it in park. If the oil seems dark or smells burnt that is not a good sign. There are shift solenoids in your transmission that can fail but you need a scan tool to troubleshoot those. If you have an Aamco transmission shop near they may test it for free. It also may be more that just a shift solenoid and may need a new transmission.

I have a 97 chevy silverado c1500 ext cab 2wd automatic the truck stopped shifting. I had a tranny rebuild done and then park reverse and neutral worked but it wouldn't shift outta 1 st. Got new shift...


1st and 3rd gear only sounds like a broken sun shell he should feel bad... The only real issue on those 96 97 transmissions is the solenoid resistance values so swap ur solenoids with the one u want to put in and it will work fine if u do ur home work first.. U got to know why they wont work thats how u find cheats... But first and third sounds like a stripped or sheared shell...was reverse gone to

My 2001 GMC Jimmy 4x4 Automatic with 84K miles. It winds when I put it in reverse and I think I only have 1st and 2nd gear. Additionally it revs high, like over 3000 rpm, delays and then eventually...


It winds up in 1st and then shifts right from 1st into 3rd. Then never shifts into 4th. Plus rev is gone. You broke the sun shell. The transmission will need to rebuilt or replaced.

I have a 1995 GMC Jimmy with auto trans., it wont shift into 2nd gear only shifts into drive when I get up to 2700 RPM and let off the gas and wont shift into overdrive at all. Does anyone know what causes...


Your going to have to get the Jimmy scaned before youhurt the transmission, It sounds like it's on a Limp mode which can range from a tune up to a bad ground. Good luck.

Will not shift auto but will manual ,and speedometer quit working


Hello;
There are two things I would look at. First and least expensive is the neutral safety switch. It controls the shifting functions as far as PRNDL2L1. The other thing to check is the large bundle of wires that go into the passenger side of the transmission. Make sure it is in and seated.
If your check engine light is on and it is showing codes for the transmission, also check the ignition switch. They go out as well. The symptoms appear as starting out in 3rd gear with reverse ok or a touch of chatter.
Hope thi helps.
Thanks;
