Transmission ??


Asked by Jun 22, 2016 at 04:24 PM about the 2001 Chevrolet Suburban LT 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2001 Chevy Suburban. Just put a brand
new transmission in back in January. Yesterday
going down the interstate it started acting up. It
was hard to drive. It was like I couldn't catch any
speed.  Pulled over and looked at fluids seemed
okay. Tried to leave and couldn't get passed 40
mph or so.  Seems to not shift into 3rd please
help!!  Also noticed that it takes 2 to 3 times to
start the vehicle. I even bought a new battery and
still didn't help

Full Hot on the dipstick...with the engine running...there is transmission fluid goes through flexible connections to the bottom of the radiator...check for leaks there and make sure the level is a t FULL HOT~ if it is still acting up with proper fluids would have no choice but to bring it back...and like a doggy with his doo doo in the wrong place grab them by the back of the neck...put their face it it and say "what did you do?"~

When your looking at the dip stick does the fluid need to be inbetween the the two dots or all the way to the top dot?

yes...with the engine idling...full hot is the top dot~...that's where we want to be~ give them hell if this is correct and still misbehaving~
