I own a 1998 GMC Yukon SLT 4WD w/ AT, 132,973.9 mi. Suddenly engine raced at stop light & I now have zero reverse. Push button 4x4 on dash shows 2WD light solid but 4WD Lo flash & return to 2WD solid. Engine RPM stays around 1K
for OD, 3D, 2D & L but R function causes zero RPM from idle but accelerator causes neutral type response. NO REVERSE GEAR ENGAGING! I hear a click sound only when I push 4WL & light sequence does as stated. Could this be shift selector solenoid on transmission or simple stupid. At 14 yrs & counting,
$ 3.5k is not an option. I'm in CC, MA.
Thanks for your interest.

My 07 Yukon has the same problem. I took my Yukon to the dealer for the scheduled transmission flush. A few months later I started experiencing the transmission jolt when you accelerate and bump when you come to a complete stop. The issue occurs off and on and only when the car is accelerating from a stop or right as the car sits back when coming to a stop. It may also be my imagination, but it seems like the transmission is also dogging in first/second gear when accelerating. I only have 60,000 miles on my truck (and probably 55,000 when the issue started).

Have you had your service department check into the transmission jolt you described? I know you're still in the powertrain warranty by mileage - if you wanted to have us get the exact date of expiration please get us the last 8 digits of your VIN and we'll be sure to send that information your way.

#111 of 164 Yukon 2005 transmission 79k

I suspected my problem was not unique. I was noticing our Yukon was downshifting from 4th to 3rd gear repeatedly when at cruising speed, this was intermittent for several months. Took the Yukon to our trusted mechanic hoping it was something with a sensor. They eliminated anything electrical, took the trans pan down and found metal shavings in the pan and changed fluid, filter and gasket. They said I will need a new/rebuilt transmission soon. Mileage was 79K, under 80k.
Called GMC, they were nice and offered to schedule me for dealer appt, where I will pay another minimum charge to have them analyze it and no doubt tell me I need a new transmission at my expense.
I have GM case number: 71-1075492466, VIN#: 1GKEC16Z25J133597. Overall we have loved the Yukon, bought it from Carmax and it's been pretty good except for this large issue. A transmission in a vehicle of this magnitude should last longer than this. We don't tow, don't have 4WD, it's been treated very well. I wish GMC would offer something to correct this when it happens other than shuttling you in to a dealer. I have been treated well - but think I will go elsewhere for my transmission service where I can rely on the new/rebuilt one.

My 2005 Yukon XL with 125,000 miles has started chattering between 3rd and 4th gear and overdrive. If I run it in "tow mode" it seems better. Does anyone have any experience with these transmisssions and what life from them I can expect? Whats the fix for this? Are there any recalls?

Best of luck! GMC has abandoned you after they took your hard earned ca$h!
Your GMC transmission is toast like the rest of ours. Inferior product for an extremely high priced vehicle. I'm sure Sarah at GMC Customer Care will refer you to an authorized GMC Dealer who will charge you $$$$$ per hour to open your tran$mission, invoice you, and offer you an inferior plastic geared replacement scheduled to fail in the not distant future. Pay up!! That's the GM way now! Customer loyalty to their coffer$ is their motto today. Sad but true. Read the other 111 posts to this site to get the sad but true fact$ about your GMC tran$mi$$ion.
No longer a loyal GMC owner nor customer as of April 9, 2012!!!!

"Class Action Lawsuit...?" I'm in!! After posting my 4L60E tranny failure early this year, I've been notified repeatedly to any new posting. The complaint list is growing longer and longer every week. If anyone receiving this post knows how to formally get a "factory recall" process started, count me in. Or perhaps this forum would be so lucky to have an attorney amongst us that would rally all of us dissatisfied GM customers, I'm sure their would be an instantaneous long list of people ready to sign on! Anybody out there willing to rally all of us.... ?
#116 of 164 2011yukon transmission issue
Jun 16, 2012 (11:29 pm)
I have a 2011 yukon. Tonight i had multiple issues. First I was going up hill and the ignition was on, but engine just shut down. It started right back up and all gauges looked ok ( water temp, oil, battery, etc). Then I scrolled through data center on dash and realized the transmission temp was 230 degrees and rising. I shut it off immediately. Once cooled down I restarted and anytime a starlet from stop or rpms went above 1500 the temp stared rising again. In the midst if this it did not seem to shift right again going up hills. I am hoping to get it towed tomorrow but any thoughts?
