#182 of 422 A Possible Transmission Problem
May 07, 2010 (11:35 am)
I have a 1995 Chevy Tahoe (it's a 5.7L, 4x4) with about 156K on her. My issue is a loss of power when the truck is accelerating in drive; it feels, sounds, and drives like it's a transmission issue. The problem started when I was accelerating up a fairly steep hill, the truck shifted down into 3rd to maintain 60mph and when I crested the hill the truck no longer would shift into 4th gear. There was no; bang, knock, pitch, grind, ect., nor does the truck any abnormal sounds now with said problem. Gear one only works if you downshift into D2 or D1. Gear two feels like the starting gear in drive. Gear three works without a problem. Gear 4 is missing, henceforth I can't get the truck into 5th gear. Currently I have the truck at a mechanic, though I've had a variety of people tell an even larger variety of issues. If someone could please give a general idea of the problem that would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Need Help. Transmission wont work but when I shut down the engine and restart it will run in "3" only. Is this possibly computer related?

I had the same exact thing happen as to mgoodfellow (post #152) just before we were about to go on a long road trip.
Our 2007 Tahoe LTZ blew its transmission with only 36k miles. Unbelievable. I'm a Ford guy and will likely not buy another Chevy again after this. Even with normal wear and tear, a transmission should easily get to 100k miles without catastrophic failure.
I will say that Martin Chevrolet (in Los Angeles) took care of the issue right away and made sure we had a rental Tahoe to cover us while the truck was getting fixed. Tellingly, the dealer said their transmission repair guy was booked solid for several days when we brought our Tahoe in...

Transmission works in ok in park,neutral,Drive,3 and 4 wheel. Can feel transmission engage in all but Reverse. Vehicle will move Forward in Drive,3and 4 wheel. Can hear slight click when placed in Reverse,not as pronounced as in the other gears. Will not move in Reverse, will not move with gas or manually pushing backwards. As a novice mechanic, tried and inspected everything repair manual said. NEED HELP BADDDD. Thanks

Gotta call AAMCO (or some local transmission shop)
Had similar symptoms in my 97 couple years ago. There is a splined cage that is known to break. Pieces broke off, and floated around, causing two other gears to need replacing.
Don't drive it anymore (risking further damage), have it towed to a transmission shop. Get out checkbook. I saw my broken parts when they took it apart. If your problem was anything like mine, it's not something you are going to fix yourself. Good news is, transmission shops give you a warranty.
#188 of 422 2005 Tahoe transmission problems
Aug 13, 2010 (4:23 pm)
I bought a new Tahoe LT in 2005 and about a year after, I started having problems. It started to make a clunking sound in between gears, and sometimes while driving. I would feel a vibration, but not very strong. It was periodic, and every time I took it into the dealership, I was told that they couldn't duplicate the sound. I have had friends in my car and was told by them that it sounded like transmission issues (which I told the dealership). Last week, the sound and vibration became considerably worse. Yesterday, it was so bad that I thought I was going to break down, so I drove it to the nearest dealership. They are telling me it is a transmission problem (torque converter and a few other issues that go with it). I was told I have to fork up $1800 since it is just passed my warranty....yet I have complaining for years....

Did you get this problem solved and if so...what was the solution?
My boyfriend is having the same problems and we are in Colorado and he has to ge to Utah. I decided to look in a Forum to see if there was anything other than shelling out 5G for aa new tranny to fix the problem. THANKS
