A slip/stick condition between the transfer case output shaft and the drive shaft slip yoke may cause this condition.

#1553 of 2238 2002 Chevy Silverado Transmission

I would bet the problem will go away with some miles. These transmissions are adaptive and change shift firmness with use. I would give the electronics time to learn your driving style. Just for a test, does Tow/Haul eliminate the problem?

#1557 of 2238 Trip to Dealer Service Dept.

Had my truck in yesterday for 4 problems, Warped front rotors, transmission surge, steering clunk and engine knock.
Rotors were resurfaced (I was told if they warp again they'll be replaced next time, that's a no brainer once I get thru the winter their bound to be bad again since they've taken more meat off the rotor they'll heat up that much faster now)
Upper steering shaft replaced.
Transmission reprogrammed w/updated program.
Engine tap (knock) No fix yet but "Chevrolet is in the process of working on a fix"
3 out of 4 problems resolved isn't bad.
#1558 of 2238 trans reprogram lots of bull
Nov 13, 2001 (10:52 pm)
Rayt, they reprogramed my trans 3 0r 4 times each time telling me this is the real fix this time, but i got 5 trouble codes after last try in first 10 minutes of driving after they test drove the sh** out it LOL
#1559 of 2238 trans reporgram
Nov 14, 2001 (6:26 am)
had mine done about 2 months after i got my truck. Had a hesitation. The program corrected it and never had a problem since
#1560 of 2238 3 out of 4 fixed eh?
Nov 14, 2001 (7:01 am)
for what we paid for the trucks, there should be 0 problems don't you think?
BTW, i had my trans reprogrammed too, and it made a difference.

I agree that what we paid for trucks they should have NO problems but this is the real world and these trucks are mechanical, things do go wrong.
Whether the transmission reprogram fixes the intermitent problem I had only time will tell(I had NO codes for the problem it was giving) it's the "engine tap" (knock) that will be interesting to see what GM comes up with for a "fix", mine sounds like lifters and only lasts for 10-15 seconds during startup when cold and occasionally when warm.
I really do like this truck and will hopefully keep for 10-12 years like my last Chevy barring any major mechanical failures.
