01 Chevy Silverado 4L60E TRANNY ISSUE

Discussion in 'Truck & Equipment Repair' started by boxerplowing, Jan 17, 2011.

  1. Hey Guys.. i have a question.. i have a 2001 chevy silverado 1500 (plowless) and when i drive it goes through 1st and 2nd no problem but then just revs up for a second then it catches.. its a 4.8L auto 4x4.. it does it both in 2wd and 4wd.. let me know if you have any ideas.. i assume i will be putting in a new tranny?!

    thanks

    I think when that happened on my 02 it was the 2-3 shift seloniod. it's pretty easy to replace if you can figure out which spot the 2-3 seloniod is in.

    any electronic trans should first be scanned. You may have codes, but the check engine light may not be illuminated. But there is a good chance that you will need a transmission. Also, any codes MUST be cleared from the computer after rebuild/replacement or else you may have the same symptoms. Good luck.
     
  4. you were right.. i need a new tranny.. im getting a plow for it so im going to try to finish the season off on this tranny then replace it for next year.. i can use it if i manually put it in 1st and 2nd.. 3rd is a no go.. so i can go up to 70..80km/hr which is all i need for my route
