#20 of 171 2004 GMC YUkon Transmission Problems
Aug 26, 2008 (6:23 am)
Hi...I have a 2004 GMC Yukon with 50K miles that the transmission went. We didn't take it to the dealership we bought it from because we called and they said the warranty on the Yukon was 36K or three tears which ever came first. I called GMC after we took it to a local garage and they said they couldn't help us because it wasn't at a GMC dealership. I believe it was just an excuse not to help!! Can anyone help?? I just can't afford the repair bill on this transmission bill...Thanks...
#21 of 171 2002 Yukon Transmission Problem
Oct 08, 2008 (3:31 pm)
I've got a 2002 Yukon with just under 90,000 miles in showroom condition, drove like a charm until a few days ago. I was reversing out of a parking space and the car wouldn't budge, put it in park and got out to see if possibly something had gotten underneath the car...nothing. Got back in and tried again--this time after revving a bit it squealed as it jerked into reverse. I was hoping it was a fluke. Then today...I was driving the last 30 mins of a 3.5 hr trip when I heard a loud pop/breaking sound and then a whirring noise. I pulled off the road and walked 2 miles to a mechanic. He towed it in and without looking at it said there's a chance it could just be the transfer case, otherwise he was familiar with a specific part in the transmission that "tends to go early on Yukon transmissions". He was going to charge me $1,500 just to take it apart and look at it! Suffice it to say--I had it towed to my local mechanic in hopes that they give me a break or find a simpler solution (doubtful). The transmission alone can cost $2,000 rebuilt from what I've seen. I'll keep you posted when I find out what's wrong with the car tomorrow.

My mechanic told me the same thing about a part failing early that their using in the transmission. You'd think with all the trouble with this part that their would be a recall on it! I ended up having my transmission rebuilt and my bill was $1280.00. I found a garage in Tyrone, Pa. that does it on the side is why it was so cheap. MY Yukon has never run so good. Good luck with yours!
PS: I prayed that mine was the transfer case too.....

Same here, I have a 2003 Yukon with 47k miles. I first started experiencing transmission slippage about two weeks ago. According to the owners manual the transmission doesnít require its first service till 50k miles. At 47k miles I figured it was just time for the transmission to be serviced. I took the truck to the dealer and paid $280 to have it serviced. A few days later I took the vehicle out for a drive around the city. It was a really hot day and while trying to go up a hill the transmission started to slip really bad. I barley made it back home and when I tried to park I wasn't getting reverse. The following day I took it back to dealer and I was told I needed a new transmission that will cost me $3K. I purchased this vehicle brand new in the dealer back in 2002 and paid $38K. I still owe $4k in payments plus $3K for repairs put the vehicle over what its worth. I called GMC customer care and they are currently working with the dealer to find a solution. Iíll keep you guys updated. What did I learn from this? Never buy an American car no matter if Iím getting 0% APR. Now I understand why that company is going under. My brother in lawís Nissan has 133k miles and its still going strong.
#24 of 171 94 Yukon transmission problem
Dec 15, 2009 (12:43 pm)
My transmission started slipping. I turned the engine off for a moment or two and I was able to drive a couple of miles before it started happening again. It was slipping to the point where it stopped completely and no matter which gear I was in it would move. ... but.... I turned of the engine ..waited a moment or two ...restarted and I could go a little ways again. Could this be some kind of sensor or an issue not inside the tranny? 200,000 miles... this has been an absolutely great truck but I don't know if I should go the dough to put a new transmission in it.
Any ideas out there? Anyone seen this before?
Thanks in advance, walt

#26 of 171 2003 Yukon XL Transmission???
Feb 08, 2010 (6:54 am)
Our 2003 Yukon XL has 95,000 miles. Just started making random noises as if we were in a low gear. Sound comes and goes while driving. No other problems, just sounds as if we're in a low gear or "grinding" type noise. Sorry i'm not more specific.
Any advice before I bring it to the dealer? Any suggestions on what it could be? Not sure if this is a transmission problem.. It goes forward/ reverse no problems....
#28 of 171 2000 Yukon XL Transmission Slipping
Apr 23, 2010 (5:22 am)
Guess I have no real reason to complain. My 2000 Yukon XL has 210K miles and just yesterday started slipping. It will still shift, but I'm thinking the tranny will go fast now. What I need to know is "Should I rebuild what I have, purchase a rebuilt, or purchase a Jasper rebuilt?" The truck has also recently started burning a quart of oil between changes. Signs of engine troubles to come? The truck is in great shape otherwise. It's been a great vehicle for my family of 7. What are the thoughts about rebuilding the tranny when the engine will likely need servicing soon as well?
