Question about 1997 Chevrolet K1500
Trans shiftly extremely hard so I had it rebuilt. Seem to get better but now the same problem has returned. Any ideas?
It is a very common issue If you have a 4L60E, you may have a problem with the valve body. As the valves bores get worn hydraulic pressure is compromised, there are fixes out there for this transmission, check out www.sonnax.com they have many parts to help resolve the transmission of these problems. Also you should check or replace your separator plate as sometimes the check balls that regulate the hydraulics of the transmission become stuck onto the plate. I've done quite a few of this model transmission and its almost always the valve body problem. HOWEVER FIRST CHECK YOUR FLUID CONDITION, if the fluid is good and there isn't a large amount of debris in the pan you should try to either get a new valve body or have your rebuilt with the parts from sonnax that eliminate these hard shift problems.
