#13 of 63 '05 Colorado Crew 5 cyl auto rear end
Jan 08, 2008 (7:09 pm)
My truck locked up after pulling out of the driveway and right wheel spinning on the grass. It semed like it was in 4WD. I was able to duplicate it again. I took it ti Chevy (still under warrantee thank God)
and after giving the the standard BS. they "serviced" the rear, and it still had the problem. GM told them to replace the rear.
Anyone out there thinking it is going in 4WD, it might be the rear "auto locking" rear

Got the Truck back yesterday. The had to replace the whole rear (gears and clutches) It works like it should. Actually, it never acted correctly since I bought it new in '05. Still having a fight about the Auto transmission problem (hesitating when backing up)
#15 of 63 Automatic Transmission Shudder?
Apr 08, 2008 (2:00 pm)
Has anyone experienced a light shudder when accelerating slowly from a stop with a Colorado with the I-5 and automatic?
My '05 Colorado 4X4 with the automatic transmission just started doing this with about 58,000 miles. I am trying to determine if it is related to the transmission, a transmission mount, or the limited slip rear end. I have changed the fluid and filter more frequently than is reccomended (at 25,000 and 50,000 miles) so I don't suspect that it is going bad. It acts exactly like a transmission shudder, for those of you who have ever had a marginal automatic transmission. It happens in all the forward gears.

Thanks. Possibly the torque converter as well. I will be bringing it in later today.

I have a 2004, 4x4 ,I5 auto trans and I have felt the same shudder. I have felt it the most when the truck shifts to second gear but it might only do it once or twice a year so I haven`t worried about it. I haven`t seen anything else on this site about the trans. shudder or heard anything from Chevrolet service bulletins on this subject so it maybe a problem that hasn`t had enough time to be seen. Let me know if you find out anything.
#19 of 63 trans temp

Just bought a 08 Z71 crew cab with the 3.7 eng.
I want to install a trans temp gauge and I was hoping someone could let me know who sells a A-pillar mount?
Checked with Summit already.
#20 of 63 Automatic transmission only shifts through the gears if you start in 1st?
Oct 17, 2009 (4:57 pm)
My company truck only shifts through the four speed automatic transmission (2.8L 2wd 2004) gears if you start in first and shift manually through 2nd, 3rd, D. If you start in drive it just revs up as if you were in N. Has torqe in first and second but you cant move from a stop if you put it into drive or third. Does anyone know of this problem? Transmission bad or did something fall apart? Please help! I am going to the junk yard next weekend and going to change the transmission. It would not be much fun if its all for nothing.

could the linkage be at fault? Seems funny it works properly if you start out in low and then manually shift through the gears. Starting in D should do the samething thats why I wonder if putting it in drive first where as the linkage is just a little off. Have you tried putting it in low, then 2nd, 3rd and then drive while still stopped and then try and go in D. If this works I would guess it is the linkage out of wack. Try it and report back.
#22 of 63 2005 Tranny Problems

I have a 2005 port LS I5 with auto tranny that just started slipping today! It only has 48K on it and I am baffled. Well taken care of.
As for what I call the the reverse gear hesitation clunk, it happens too and dealer service rep told me "thats normal for this model"
Sucks as the truck is off warranty now............
