Have Transmission Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
This may be an easy fix. With the transmission only going into 2nd and 4th, you may be able to just replace the shift solenoid. Have you done anything to try to fix this problem? How did the transmission work before you lost 1st and 3rd?
That does not matter. This is an electrical problem, not a mechanical problem such as a torn seal, or worn clutches. So it can be fixed for under $150.00- $250.00 if you would like me to walk you through doing the testing and repair.
If you can send me pics I can tell you if it is worth fixing it. But I am 99.9 sure this is an easy fix.
Let me put in a request to get you a phone call for $16.00 but yes that would be over the $31.00
These charges are for unlimited time as well as phone calls so you only have to pay once till we get the job done.
The first thing you need to do is check the main plug on the passenger side of the transmission to see if there is any fluid in the plug. YOu will need to remove the side cover on the trans to get to the plug. It is held on by two 10 mm head bolts.
Then we need to do some testing with a digital volt meter to make sure we fix the problem and not just throw parts at it.
I can share a secret with you on where to get your parts for much less than the local parts store or dealer as well.
It is 11 pm here as well. We can work on this when ever you are ready just give me a time and I will make sure I am online.
You can get them over nighted to you from my supplier.
So you do not get confused, I like to walk you through each test step by step. That way you cannot do something that will cause a problem.
The first pic I need to see will be of the pan so I know exactly what trans you have in your truck. it can be a 4l60e, 4l65e, or a 4l80e.
The 60 and 65 are very close where the 80 is totally different.
Most of the 60 and 65s are basically the same, the wire harness and solenoids are the biggest difference. Do you know if you have a bolt on bell housing?
When you are ready, just post a message to me on this chat screen and we can go from there. DO NOT open a new question.
If you can send me a pic of the side of the transmission I can tell.
I need to step out for just a little bit. I will be right back.
Yes just post on here that you have returned and we can get to work on your truck at your pace.
