Transmission Clunk

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1998 Chevy 1500 with a 4L60E transmission. Truck has almost 155,000 on it. Ever since I bought the truck 2 years
ago it has made an intermittent clunk when it shifts from 2nd to 3rd gear. There may be a 2 or 3 week stretch where it
wont do it and then it might do it for a week straight after that. Trans fluid is good and not low. Could this be something
where the bands need to be adjusted? Not awfully familiar with automatic transmissions.

1 Answer


Some Chevy transmissions are known to clunk at times. Have you checked your u joints and transmission/motor mounts. Might be something as simple as a bad mount bushing.

    The clunk only happens when slowing down and happens around 25-26 mph. I have read in some forums that it is most likely the transmission control unit. What do folks think? probably or probably not?
