Just got a new used-Silverado. I'm not not hard on acceleration generally, so I didn't notice it, but after finding it accidentally, I can readily reproduce it.
Symptom: When accellerating with mid to heavy acceleration, the shift from 1st to 2nd kicks. Also happens out of "neutral", like a slow coast at 10 mph into a moderate acceleration. No other gears kick, 2nd-3rd is fine as is 3rd-4th.
- Baby the throttle at low speed
- Flush and top off tranny fluid and filter
- Get a new set of bands ($1500)
- Get a shifter kit
Any thoughts on how to narrow this down. Is it ok to drive while I decide?
Silverado, 5.3L 2WD, 2005.
