Oct 06, 2008 (5:29 pm)
when towing my trailer and heading up a hill my truck lost power and I had to take the offramp and park it after a short rest it was okay for a few hundred more miles-two tranny shops have told me its not the tranny-two diagnose guys say its the tranny-when the gas is open up while going down the road the power does not go to the wheels-you can see the tach go up but the truck does not go accordingly-I don't want to replace a bunch of items and none of them be right-If I drive like a turtle its okay but I need to hook up the trailer and leave where I'm at with this problem solved-HELP
#346 of 1489 Transmission possibly slipping
Oct 16, 2008 (11:51 am)
I have a 1995 Chevy K1500, and I think possibly the transmission is going. It drives fine until about 45-50 mph, and then it starts hesitating the more I press the accelerator -- it feels like the engine is cutting out, but the rpm or even the sound of the engine doesn't change.
I changed the transmission fluid and filter, added some non-slip additive, replaced the fuel filter, redid all the ignition wiring, replaced the rotor and coil + spark plugs, and replaced the oil in the differential, but with no luck. Any help would be much appreciated.

#349 of 1489 97 GMC tranmission problems
Oct 19, 2008 (7:03 am)
I have a 97 gmc 1500 pickup and when the engine is cold it's fine but when the transmission warms up it shifts very hard from 1st to 2nd gear and also from 2nd to 3rd. I have changed the fluid and filter in the transmission to no avail. Also changed the sensor on the carb. to no avail. The engine light comes on and I replaced parts that it said to replace and the engine light is still on. I have gotten the engine light reset each time that I did something to the transmission and it'll stay clear for a while but later comes right back on. Appreciate any help!!

I have a 2008 Chevy 1500 w/ the exact same problem. Less than 4K miles have not had it in to check problem. Should I be concerned?

Just took my 2008 Silverado to the dealer, was slow getting into gear when taking off, but when I would stop, about ten seconds later there would be a jolt, like someone bumped from behind. My son says he believes it was the transmission shifting down. Passing a car takes a couple of seconds for it to shift. Dealer gave me a printout for a PIP4112G hesitation on Acceleration and told me there was nothing wrong. There is something significant when that clunk in the rear end happens. There is also now a roaring noise when travelling down the highway. Chevrolet dealer thinks I am nuts.

I've had a service manager and even a service manager and a tech ride with me to help illustrate the issues I had with my truck. It's often frustrating to leave your truck there with a description of what's wrong only to pick up the truck and find on the invoice "could not duplicate problem".

After being stoppped at an intersection, the first time it happened I thought I had been rear-ended, the jolt was that severe. And then trying to take off, it feels like it kicks into neutral first. The service tech first said "all four-wheel drives do that in the rear end" You know what, mine isn't a four-wheel drive. It is a standard, two-wheel drive Silverado. Every time you put pressure on to accelerate it kicks into what feels like neutral. But it is that jolt in the rear end that concerns me. They just tell me that is the way it works. I don't get it, something isn't right, why won't anyone listen. Perhaps they know that this will keep working just until the warranty runs out, then it isn't their problem????
