Do I have a bad transmition?
I have a 1992 GMC Vandura 2500 V6; a week ago was having some issues
with changing gears kind of slow, check transmission oil, was very low; I put
some and went all the way to "hot mark", drove it for 3 days just find,
yesterday it lost power suddenly and stop running, motor was on running but
van would not move or get in gear. turn it off for a minute; it did go for alike a
mile and then stop going again. I try it today and did same thing, any ideas
some one. Is my work van.
In a standard electronic automatic transmission, the shifts should be precise, noticeable and not mushy with no engine noise usually associated with engine reving, frequently known as neutralizing. Your vehicle is a 1992 and you should feel when it shifts. I imagine that it worked fine before and you've had this for a while, if it's your regular work van. The fact that you let your transmission fluid run low is definitely not good. Does sound like transmission failure and I presume you have a lot of miles on it. Unless you're particularly skilled at this repair, most people don't work on their own transmissions, you're going to have to get this repaired professionally, and will be thousands of dollars. It's less than purchasing a new vehicle and you'd have to fix it if you want to sell anyway. So, good luck.
Thank you very much for your help, I guess is time to look for another vehicle.
