Transmission goes out of gear after a few minutes

Asked by Sep 22, 2019 at 07:39 AM about the 1998 GMC Yukon SLT 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

After I start my Yukon and drive it
or let it sit idling for a few minutes
the transmission wont work. Like
it's in neutral no matter what I do
or what gear I put it in. When I turn
it off and restart it it works fine
again for a few minutes then
same thing. Any ideas?

I think it's on it's way out unless the filter is clogged ,, fluid should be at correct level and nice and pink , you can take it to a shop but I think it's done

It hasnt been long since it was rebuilt. And everytime I turn it off and restart it the transmission works fine for a few minutes.


Better use your warranty!!!

Warranty is out. If it had warranty I wouldnt be asking for help.
