Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

In order to determine weather the problem is an internal concern or an electronic control issue the first thing you are going to need to do is to have the computer system scanned to see if there are any fault codes setting. If you can get this done and post back with the results we can work from there to try and determine the cause.

Ok I'll try to have it done tomorrow I'm starting to wonder if it's in the valve body.. But thanks for the response I'll post back as soon as I hear something

Let me know and we can work from there.

Just wondering would a normal code scan read a trans code? I know they don't for abs... Thanks
Expert:  Ron replied 1 year ago.

There are some code readers that will but in most cases its best to use a full scan tool.

Ok I was able to get it scanned this morn no codes showed another thing I noticed is right before it pops out it has a slight shutter and does it around 60-65 mph
Expert:  Ron replied 1 year ago.

In most cases if there are no fault codes setting then that usually means the problem is not likely a electronic control issue and most likely an internal problem. The shudder your describing in most cases means the transmission is likely loosing pressure.

Ok thanks for your help I'll more than likely have it checked out at a shop if it was a old Chevy I'd be golden on doing it myself thanks again Kevin
