2005 Tahoe. Was going...

2005 Tahoe. Was going 60mph and about to pass when it downshifted but at last second I aborted the pass and let off the gas. Transmission will now not shift above 2nd. Fluid is normal color, no check engine light, and reverse works

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?

No engine light

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Tahoe yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes. Nothing yet, just limped it home and researching

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Research is suggestion shift solenoids 167,000 miles

Thanks Todd. From what I have been reading, it could either be the shift solenoids or the 3-4 clutch packs. What are yout thoughts

Does it move if you put it in the normal range (D)

1,2,D,N,R work. 3 doesn't. If I try to accelerate above 40 the engine revs but vehicle is slow to move. Feels like it is slipping a little
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I have a bad gut feeling its the clutch pack.....

I'm sorry you are having this problem and I really hate to be the bearer of bad news, but being completely familiar with this transmission, it is the 3 -4 clutch that has failed and the transmission will have to be overhauled or replacement is another option.
