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

The vehicle has 155K miles on it, shouldn't be complaining about reliability.

The motor is outstandingin my tahoe, but I was about to track down the first owner to only find out he had put 2 tranny repairs on it. First was a rebuild. He had flushed it before he finally gave up and traded it in.

I had my tranny rebuilt about 2 years ago, and recently it was hard shifting into second gear, and there was no power at all, I took it to Eagle Auto when it was rebuilt, and it turns out they put in a spring backwards, so when we had the check up done they found that in about 7 pieces just clanking around my truck, thank god me and my kids are safe. Then when I started it, it almost died, but it didn't so turns out we needed a new fuel pump, and filters. Now that thats done my truck is back and better than ever. it has power again. Now I just need to get the passenger window to go a little faster when it rolls up and down, and some of the lights on my radio are out. Maybe I need to change something to fix those????
