2002 chev suburban 1500 ls - hard shift from 1st to 2nd gear, transmission issue?

Asked by Jun 30, 2013 at 03:08 AM about the 2002 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 LS 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

We just bought a 2002 suburban with 158,000 miles, it runs super quite & smooth but it seems to shift hard from 1st to 2nd gear, flawless through the rest of the gears, any ideas? is it a whole transmission problem or something a tune up could fix? Thanks

Hard to know without looking at it and driving it. Only thing I can suggest you do is check the transmisiion fluid level the proper way, and inspect the transmission and motor mounts. Your best bet is to have a qualified mechanic and or trans mechanic diagnose it for you.
