1997 Chevy suburban tranny

Asked by Apr 10, 2017 at 01:26 AM about the 1997 Chevrolet Suburban C1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 97 suburban tranny is slipping. I have to
get it to over 2500 rpms let off the gas and
push the gas again to get it to shift from
1st to 2nd. I need to know what I can do to
fix it. I do not have the money to replace
the transmission and need to be able to haul
things with my vehicle but can't with my
transmission slipping. Also going up hill my
trans temp if I push it will get over 180F° if
that's relevant at all

If it has already started slipping then it's most likely too late to save it, your may have started out just being the shift solenoids, and if that was addressed immediately you might have been able to save it. You could have a good tranny shop plug in and run the tests on the solenoids, TCM and pressures, who you might get lucky.

I have a 2000 and my tran. Is slipping too my rpm stay low all the time even when shifting my shot out a code for shift solenoid B took it to the shop all for them to tell me it needed a new tran. So i changed the solenoid and still sending code for solenoid so looks like ill get a new tran. interested in your anwers
