I have a 1999 chev S-10 , 4x4 with only 135.000 miles on it. so far it has been much of a lemon. Fuel pump, two alternators. two A/C compressore, one radiator. The list can go on and on. You get the point. Now while starting into traffic the trucks transmission jumps into neutral. Quickly I shift to go to a lower gear to engage it again, and work my self back into drive. I have had the linkage checked and changed the fluid. It's cheaper to fix than buy a new one.Any suggestions on why its doing this?

so when it jumps into Neutral when starting out from a stop it just revs up and doesn't move ? if the fluid is clean and full and the linkage is good then there is an internal problem inside the transmission.cost effective for you would be to install a used/salvage yard transmission.most come with great warranties and you can pick one up from @ $ 300 tom $ 500 depending on how low of mileage the transmission has on it.lower mileage equals higher price
This to me is only a partial answer. What is in the transmission that could not be functioniing right Is the trans filter in need of being replaced ? Is there some type of pressure sending unit that could be involved? Please be more specific.
more than likey the sprag gear/one way clutch inside the transmision is failing and allowing it to spin in both directions causing this neatral condition.and when you manualy shift it to the lower gear it will apply another set of clutches and allow it to move
