Asked by Feb 17, 2015 at 09:45 AM about the 1997 GMC Sierra 1500 K1500 SLE 4WD Standard Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

As stated....clears up  after several miles and restarts....then happens again..will sometimes show this problem while driving and makes it hard to get home. At my wits end - I'm not a good mechanic - just too old to do much to it...really would like to hear if someone else has had this problem and what the solution was...then I can get it fixed. thanks for any/all input from you all...

is the oil level low and all the fluid levels up to spec

All fluid levels are up to snuff.....strange how when this happens the transmission just slams into gear ( all gears) until I have driven a ways and restarted the engine several times...after that you can't even feel the tranny shift....related somehow - computer controlled cars are over my head..thank you.
