Asked by Dec 09, 2011 at 01:27 PM about the 1996 GMC Sierra 1500 C1500 SL Standard Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer


Definitely sounds like you have a linkage issue or a shifter solenoid that might not be good. Both or individually they can cause shifting issues. The 96 is famous for that. I will try and post some diagrams for you tomorrow if I get a chance. I have access to GM online so I can try and get you something.
