SOURCE: misfiring

Sounds like you may have gotten a bit of water in the fuel. On the carburetored model, if you switched the petcock to "Reserve" setting, you're drawing right off the bottom of the tank where the water would be. I'm not sure about the injected models. What I'd do is go buy a can of "Sea Foam" fuel additive and mix that with the fuel. I think I'd drain the tank first.

Good Luck
Steve

My 99 jimmy with a 4L60E, on a downshift (kickdown) at highway speed or any speed really when downshift by pressing down the accelarator or downshifting by hand the tansmission feels like it's in neutral,...


First off there may be nothing wrong. At highway speed, the trans will shift down to 1st, but you won't feel it. If should feel like neutral. Does it shift normally when your "wide open throttle" from standstill? If it shifts properly in this situation, then your fine, don't worry. How about wide open throttle at say 25mph? how about 35 and 45? anything over that and its gonna feel like neutral. IF your convinced that your passing gear is not working right, it could mean that its out of adjustment, and needs a little more push, more throw, or kinda like adjusting the rod out a little bit further. Adjust your "passing gear linkage" or kickdown as you imply. Second guess would be low on transmisison fluid, filter, and last, the transmissoin control selonoid. Again I suggest its doing just fine, if it shifts down at any speed.

When shifting from 4th gear into overdrive, power is lost and it feels as though there's no gas being supplied. Can only drive in 4th gear, no higher.


At what speed are you shifting to overdrive? If it is below highway speed, then you are lugging the engine

Can an engine miss fire in two cylinders and not be noticed? In the truck on the highway, I use excessive gas and getting about 7-9 mpg. Also, I go into a low gear of about 1900 rpms with no power or high...


It sounds like you have two different problems. First it sounds like you have a transmission problem. It sounds like the band for 2nd gear is bad. As for the fuel milage problem, Is the check engine light on? If it was only running on 6 cylinders you should feel it.
