Trans won't shift out of 2nd.

Asked by Jul 18, 2017 at 09:14 AM about the 2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT Ext Cab Short Bed 2WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2000 5.3 Ext cab Silverado shifts from 1st to 2nd just fine but it won't shift
out of 2nd to 3rd or 4th. It stays in 2nd and I can run it up to around 3000rpm
and I'm going 45 mph.or I can go up to 3500 rpm and it does 50 mph. If I let
off gas it coasts.

Have a reputable transmission shop diagnose the issue. Does sound like your transmission is worn out and due for a rebuild. How many miles on the truck? Over 150K?

I had it rebuilt in PHX AZ last year and it did this out the gate. Wasn't able to get it back to PHX. Aamco charged me $129.00 to diagnose couldn't find anything and wanted to tear it down. $375.00 they were leaning towards the torque converter.
