Not shifting into 3rd gear

Not shifting into 3rd gear

Postby cbe295 [OP] » Nov 15 2012, 11:13pm

My 95 K1500 is not shifting into 3rd gear or into overdrive. I dropped the pan and let some tranny fluid out because it was overfilled. I put some stop slip stuff in there and then topped it off with fresh tranny fluid. I took it for a test drive and it's still not shifting into 3rd gear. Also, it revs up to 4000 and still doesn't shift. I have no other ideas. I am about ready to take it out to the junkyard.

Sounds like a transmission rebuild is in order.

My old truck did this and it was a shift solenoid. It was a 20$ part and a hour fix.

I put 2 solenoids in tonight and it's still not shifting. I don't know how to rebuild it and have no money to rebuild it or get a new one. I actually had to borrow money from my friend to get the solenoids. What is the best bet to do?

I would see if I could find a transmission on craigslist or at a scrap yard. Don't shoot the thing, you can alkways part it out and get a small car for the money you get on the parts from it until you get back on your feet and can get another one.

I can't sell it for parts on craigslist because there are so many off them that look better and run better plus they have plows. Almost NO ONE on this post what the hell I'm talking about because you guys are from warm states and don't have to worry about rust from the snow or plowing. Bring your truck up here and drive it for one winter i will be so rusty it would almost fall apart.
