#108 of 133 93 burban tranny problems
Mar 24, 2011 (11:46 pm)
i just got a 4x4 1993 chevy suburban ,automatic, i love it, but i got it cheap because it had "tranny problems" ive been driving it, but to get into 3rd gear i have to floor it, and it wont go above 4th.
Im not sure if it has a bad torque converter or if its the whole transmission? the previous owner said he tried changing the filter and the fluid.. any info for me?
#109 of 133 2001 Suburban 8.1L transmission failure

I have a 2001 Suburban 8.1L with transmission failure and cannot locate a used transmission anywhere in this state. Would I be better to put an older model tranny that is retrofitted or have mine rebuilt?

Why wouldn't rebuild be the preferred solution anyhow, just fix what is broke? Or do you have a ton of miles on it, where you should consider buying new vehicle?

I have a 2002 chevy suburban 5.3L 1500 4x2. My driveline broke off and just installed a new driveline. When I put the truck in drive the truck doen't seem to go. I step on the gas and the truck takes a while to move forward but does so at a very slow pace no matter how much I step on the gas. What could this be?

I have a 2007 Suburban too. Same problem. My wife got down the street and tranny popped out of gear. Reverse, 2L, and 1L work but nothing else. Drive nor 3L don't work. I only have about 30 thousand miles on it, so it shouldn't be due to wear. Any word on the class action?

Purchased 2007 Chevy Surburban and nothing but trouble. At 80,150 the transmission failed and was replaced. driving 50 miles an hour and engine light came on and stated "engine power is reduced or low or something and stabiliTrack failed and the car would only go <5 miles/hour down the interstate. Bracks replaced, windshield wiper tubing broken and now the throttle body failed.I've read all of the reviews on line and wondering if there is any help coming from GM.
#114 of 133 I have a 2002 Suburban

In front of my radiator is a long thin radiator, shooting a brown liquid out of the top of the coil. It is like a 2" wide from the top of the radiator down to the bottom with a single coil. My truck is a 2002 Suburban 4*4 with 100k miles on it, k2500.
Any idea what this small radiator is, so I can have it replaced?">

Sounds like a transmission cooler and if your fluid is brown coming from the "transmission cooler", it is way past time to change the filter and fluid. Hope that this helps you. BJ

At first when I stop at a light or stop sign and start to go again my 2004 chevy Suburban truck stalls and don"t want to go and the traction control indicator light comes on, I have to take my foot of the gas then reapply pressure to the pedal for it to drive normally. Now the 4 wheel drive won't turn off when I push the button in and if I try to drive it the transmission won;t change over and I heard a big "POP". What could be the problem?
#117 of 133 2001 Suburban trans stopped
Dec 11, 2011 (9:32 pm)
I have a 2001 1500 Suburban, my wife was driving, trans has been working good no slips or noise, she came to a stop and tried to accelerate and the truck would not move. I took it a trans shop they pulled the pan it showed some clutch material, i had them clean the pan and replace the filter and frsh fluid and i drove it home 4 miles without a issue. I had not service the trans for 40k miles could this just been cause of filter plugged do to lack of service or will it do it again in a very short period of time or miles.
