#298 of 319 s10 wont shift but gears work and dont slip
Jan 24, 2012 (2:35 pm)
I have a 99 s10 2.2 auto, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and reverse work, sort of. The gears don't slip the fluid level is fine but it won't shift on its own, you can shift it your self and it starts in the gear you select except 3rd. 3rd gear will only work if your above 20mph and drive doesnt work at all I was thinking the shift selenoids are bad but I'm not sure any feedback would be awesome

Probably no power to the transmission, need to troubleshoot to find out why.
#300 of 319 95 s-10 trans adjustment help

My son nas a 95 s-10 4.3 5 speed. When he takes off first gear is ok, but shifting to the other gears, the truck shudders, and he has hardly any power to the driveline. Me semi had the same issues but it was because the bolts on the bell housing was shearing from the motor, but his is fine. Can anyone help me to tell me if this is a clutch needing adjustment or will it need replaced. I got a haynes book, but didnt see anywhere to adjust the clutch, only replace it. Looking to just adjust the clutch, if possible before needing to replace it. Any ideas will be helpful. Checked trans fluid and it's ok as well.

I have a 97 sonoma 4.3L 4 wheel drive. I just bought from a guy who had it sitting, I have replaced the water pump, battery and altenator. the problem now is right after I got it registered and tagged--will not shift to 3rd and 4th gears (auto trans). I can start out in "D" and it will not go above 2nd. If I start out in 1 then got to 2 it is fine but when I put it in 3rd it is like it is in neutral. I can rev the motor and get it to engage briefly. fluid level is ok. any suggestions?

Do you have reverse, if no, the sun shell is broken.

No third manual not good, has to be a hard part problem. Call or visit a local transmission shop, not chain, they just want to replace. Common unit, they will know right off.
