Tranny slip? Silverado

Asked by Jan 04, 2017 at 06:11 PM about the 2004 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS Crew Cab 2WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2004 silverado 1500 ls 2 wheel drive. Don't
know a whole lot about mechanics but I'm trying to
learn and fix everything myself. Was driving today
about 25 min mostly highway. I was going 30 MPH
up a hill and the rpm went up but no acceleration,
heard the engine rev up. Took my foot off the gas
went down to 15mph hit the gas again to hit the
side street and felt it jerk. Pulled over checked the
fluid and it was up to par. Also have been having
some electrical issues with the speakers and dash.
Any ideas? Im hoping it's just a wiring issue. Truck
has about 130,000 miles on it

You need to get the truck to a trany shop. There is a known problem with those years transmissions. Your sound issue is just a matter of checking the wires or replacing the speakers. More than likely just a wiring problem.

Rowefast is right. My Sister has an '07 Silverado 2WD which she bought brand new. Her transmission quit at around 110,000 miles. HTH. -Jim
