Talked to my BIL last night, looks like I get to learn how to rebuild an auto tranny. Once I get it out, he is going to brings his tranny tools, come over and help me do it.

All for just parts cost too and whatever I throw his way,... master overhaul kit, convertor, and upgraded sun shell. :dancingbanana:

Get the Trans-go jr valve body kit too. It changes the PWM converter to an on-off like the old ones and stops the sticky valve and slam into 2nd. Wouldn't be a bad idea to put a new pressure control solenoid and the TCC solenoid in the pump in it too.

Thanks, I'll look into those.

I know I replaced 3 or 4 of the solenoids a couple winters ago, very lazy shifting when it was cold, solenoids fixed that. I know it was a couple of the shift solenoids, the 3-2 downshift solenoid and I think the manual valve position switch.

This tranny has never had the hard 1-2 shift. Now my Firebird, when it gets hot, it will jerk your head off 1-2. I recently read GM changed that hard shift issue with upgrades in '99 which maybe why the Tahoe doesn't do it. The Firebird is a 98, maybe need to look into that.

The harsh shift is from the accumulator. Check the springs to see if the y may be broken or the piston is stuck . common issues with those old boogers.
Oh and make sure you get an intermediate sprag assembly too these things are always failing. ( related to 2nd and reverse) .

When the trans crapped out in my 95 gmc my trany friend told me to toss it and put in a 700r4.Every thing fit up the same execpt for the kick down cabel and the big gear that goes into the transfer case(differant pitch)he gave me the right gear and sold me a kit for the converter lock up.Works like a champ.And I don't need a stinking computer to tell the trans when to shift

I think my hard shift in the Bird is from the sticky valve Doug mentioned. I saw a kit that replaced the spring with a heavier one to prevent it. There is also another kit that gives you a larger valve and a reamer, seems that aluminum can get wallered out and cause valve to get cocked in the bore and stick too.

 

My BIL will inspect and tell me if anything else I need to upgrade. #1 is the sun shell upgrade, all my heavier towing did it in I think, and the heavy right foot :D .

Yea, would be nice, but since all my cables to my butterfly are on the opposite side, no way I would hook up the TV cable properly, the changed that set up in '96 when they went to the Sequential injection system over the throttle body setup/CPI system.  I'm not that froggy trying to re-invent the wheel when all I need is a rebuild.

I got 16X,00 miles out of my tranny in my 99 Yukon before it went and it had LOTS of heavy towing.

I have had pretty much bad luck with this one. I replaced the Autotrac Transfer case at 125K (PO put in wrong oil) , motor at 132K ( cam or lifters)  and now tranny at 141K ( sun shell).

This is the first GM I've owned that has let me down at these early miles other than the '95 S10 blazer @ 108K that blew an oil cooler line and fried the bearings, but that was my fault, I put off fixing the hose I knew was leaking.

Sorry I forgot that they changed the injection system in 96,for sure it would be a pita to try and make the tv cable change over.

Now the Wife's jeep has developed a driveline vibration. Already pulled the front driveshaft and that actually helped a little, seems the front ujoint I put in there last spring is already developing slop. Still has vibration when slowing down, gonna rotate tires first and see if that helps. If not, told the wife to make sure she has her phone and AAA card on her, just wait until it blows then tow it home. I think it maybe from CV joint on the drivers side halfshaft, but feels tight, so I dunno.

 

Started pulling trany out of Tahoe last night, I figured all those bolts would be easy to remove since I replaced TC about 2 1/2 yrs ago, motor 1 1/2 yrs ago, but...NNnnoooooo. I had to quit and walk away from frustration.

 

 

I own 5 vehicles, maybe down to one driveable one soon :wallbanging:  :wallbanging:  :wallbanging:

When it rains it pours!

Oddly my ranger tires went out of balance for no reason. Didn't lose a wheel weight just suddenly started shaking.

It is a Furd trying to self destruct.
