1999 Chevy Suburban, 5.7 L, automatic transmission, 147,300 miles, not shifting into OD


Asked by Mar 14, 2014 at 06:34 PM about the 1999 Chevrolet Suburban K1500 LT 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 1999, 4 x 4, 5.7 litre, Chevy Suburban 1500, 147,600 miles will not shift into
No clunking noises,
no slipping,
tranny fluid clean and no smell,
no shifting so hard it jerks you,
engine feels a little rough when you first accelerate, but goes away,
idles smoothly and quietly after that,
misfire on cyl #5 (been there for a couple of years) occasionally there is a little
bucking from that at a higher speed.
Also had two codes come up for O2 sensors
Just changed speed sensor, too

Any ideas?
Thank you

Overdrive band in the transmission might be worn, or other internal issue. Hard to say. Have it diagnosed by your mechanic or local transmission shop.
