Customer Question
Transmission was working fine...

Transmission was working fine. I had a broke pan bolt so I dropped the pan, removed the bolt, put in a new filter and gasket and now I have no overdrive or drive. It's a 4L60E

Mechanic's Assistant: Is this your first time dealing with this issue? What size is your engine?

Yes and it's a 5.7/350

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model/year of your car?

93 GMC Sierra XC 2500

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

I just rebuilt a new motor and put it in. Only thing I've done with the transmission is put in a new filter and gasket.

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

Thats it. Just wondering what it could be.

the odds are one of shift solenoids was cracked or broken during the pan removal causing this issue

it is very tight to get the pan in and out and usually a solenoid was damged

it the wiring was not pinched and looks good inspect the shift solenoids for one cracked or broken
