I have a 1996 Chevrolet z71 with a 4l60e Automatic transmission. I can drive it down the road and it shift fine then all of a sudden it starts jerking and dies. Like a stick shift in too high a gear

Does it do this after you get into third gear or fourth gear with lockup? Or does it happen at anytime?



Ok. from that I would recommend getting a "live Data" scan performed, that way they can see if it is a transmission solenoids or the TCM or maybe it isn't even tranny related. I have seen a crank sensor cause this but usually it will backfire once then die, but every rig is different.

Have codes read, I'm guessing tcc is stuck
