Customer Question
Hi I searched nad...

Hi I searched nad found my problem listed, the answer was the 3-4 clutch pack was bad as my truck will drive fine in 1st and 2nd but when switching to 3rd it revs like its in neutral. So i put ij a different transmission same exact issue. so I was wondering 2 bad transmissions? or electronic porblem?

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the clutch? Has it been slipping or sticking?

I bought the truck and it drove fine for a couple days then it did this. Last week installed the other used Transmission and same exact problem. My first one had 185,000 on it, I have another truck I bought new in 2000 and it has 265,000 and no issues with transmisson so far.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '00 Chevy?

This on with trans trouble is a*****1500 4.6 v6 short bed

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

Im trying but no luck

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

That should be all

Seeing that you have the exact same problem as you did before, my diagnosis would be that the vcim is not commanding 3rd gear and operating the 2-3 shift solenoid
