My 1990 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 transmission slips and will not achieve passing gear. The problem is worse when cold. The fluid is fine. What can be wrong?

Asked by Aug 30, 2007 at 12:58 PM about the 1990 Chevrolet Suburban

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It has 190,000 miles and runs great aside from the transmission.  It was replaced 5 years ago with a re-built transmission.  I drive it normally about 60 miles a day.

Hi dm2736, The transmission is a very complex piece of machinery. This could be something as simple as adjusting the bands and/or linkage to something complicated like a full rebuild. I would take it into a shop that specializes in transmissions to have it diagnosed properly. Good luck!
