1994 Suburban wont shift automatically

Jeff Wills

Asked by Mar 14, 2016 at 11:24 PM about the 1994 Chevrolet Suburban C1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The other night, a teenager jumped in front of me, I slammed on the brakes. when i went to go again, I pressed the accelerator pedal, the truck barked the back tires, then nothing. I dropped it into 1, then manually shifted through OD without problem. now I can only shift it manually. trying to reset the PCM, the fluid does not smell burnt, and I have no metal shavings in the fluid. The 4l60e was rebuilt about 35000 miles ago with stage 3 clutches, and upgraded hard parts.

1 Answer


The sudden stop may have damaged the transmission sylinoid,which shifts the tranny.
