Hello again.

Ask Your Own Chevy Question

It sounds like you may have a broken 3-5-R apply (waved) plate (507) which is a big job to replace, transmission pretty much needs to be completely taken apart which is about a 15 hour job. So you should be able to get transmission rebuilt for around $2500 but most places don't like tearing into transmissions so you will need to call some transmission shops. Here is TSB released by GM for problem. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.
