I have a 1996 GMC Sierra 4X4 truck, have had a harsh 1/2 shift after 8-12miles of driving. Yesterday started engine put in drive accelerated slowly turning out of driveway felt/heard loud mechanical clang...

Hey Dennis.
Opppsss.. was this transmission serviced regularly?, ok.. this is a common problem, you will need to take it to s QUALIFIED PROFESSIONAL to get the trans rebuilt..
If you live near a local drag strip, go there, ask the drag race mechanics who the best transmission man there is?? There is always one or two the drag racers relay on.. I would trust him to get it done right (BEFORE I would trust a "chain" transmission store!!!!!)
I, personally, have had two transmissions do this.. one a 96 suburban and a 95 Silverado.(both inherited and never serviced).. I found the guy that did mine this same way.. GLAD I DID.. it was less $$$$ and great work!! If no drag strip.. ask the custom car guys...

You will need to have an experienced technical drive this before attempting any repairs, but my gut feeling is that you will need to rebuilt the transmission. That takes many special tools and a high degree of skill and training and is not something that really can be done at home with common hand tools.

Transmission seems to shutter in overdrive

this can be caused by a few things, like bad lockup seloniod or converter or weak trany, the first thing i would try that sometimes works but is a 50/50 shot is a BG trany service, google it to read up on it, it a machine filled with 16 quarts of fluid and start by adding a cleaner into trany and run a few minutes even drive it then hook machine up to lines and start the engine it then begins to remove the old fluid while putting in the new, its like a transfusion, when it done a conditioner is added, i've done a lot of these and some times it help and sometimes it does not, but i would start there, this runs about $150.00, good luck and hope this helps,

94 Grand Prix 3.1-Car won't go into any gear? It starts and runs and it even sounds like the shift lever is moving properly. The transmission is pretty new and we just recently rebuilt the engine and it...

first thing is to make sure trany fluid is full,start engine and check while in park,if oil level is good then i would have to say trany is bad,usually the motors are pretty good,those cars are famous for trany problems take it to a trany shop and have it checked out. good luck.

Start with a complete flush of the trany and torque converter, and a filter replace. That should fix the problem, but the Taurus has a bad reputation for trany's going out frequently.

1991 Ford Escort fan will not turn on and motor overheats.

some water from the tail pipe is normal but if the car is running bad then it is possible the head gasket is blown. on the escorts that i have owned i have found that the main relay is usually burned and needs to be replaced. it is possible that the fan is dragging and burning this relay up if this relay is good then you may be better off taking it to the electrical shop.
