Got a 2003 gmc sierra 1500 HD 6.0 4wd. Customer stated it

Hello. Got a 2003 gmc...
Hello. Got a 2003 gmc sierra 1500 HD 6.0 4wd. Customer stated it shifted into 2nd hard. Then he had to rev the engine up high for it to kick into 2nd. A few days later it wouldn't shift into 2nd at all and wouldn't go over 30 MPH. We replaced the 1-2 and 3-4 shift solenoid and filter kit while in it with new fluid. Still the same problem of not shifting out of 1st. No codes.

there is a big round metal almost like knob looking part near the cooler lines on passenger side
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
16 bolt pan if that helps

can you upload a picture of the transmission pan so we can be sure ?

and there are NO codes set ?

Ask Your Own GMC Question

perfect...thank you

that is a 4L60E

none of those codes should cause a no upshift into 2nd gear

with no throttle position codes or VSS codes this issue is going to more than likely be an internal failure of the 2-4 band

if it is driven with a scan tool and with the scan tool upshift the transmission where the computer is being told to shift into 2nd and it will not go into 2.d the 2-4 band is usually the failure

Sounds like a new tranny which is where I'm leaning towards but wanted to double check before going that route.

its cheaper to pick up a used one complete from a salvage yard/junk yard as most come with good warrantys v/s buying a new or rebuilt one

but if your gonna keep the truck a long time it might be worth the price of a new one with the 5 year 100K warrantys they have with them
