having transmission troubles

Postby Mike 97rado [OP] » Apr 29 2013, 11:43pm

:cry: hello my name is mike and I'm new here. My truck is a 97 Chevy Silverado z71stock. I have put 4 transmissions in this truck in the last six months. I keep losing third and forth and no other gears or have any other problems . Looking for any suggestions or ideas of why this could be happening . Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Are you putting new or remanufactured transmissions in or used ones?

I would look outside trans. You have to test to see if computer is commanding 3rd and 4th. Especially if youve done 3 trans. I just fixed 97 k1500 today that had bad pcm. We see it quite often actually without a wiring diagram, multimeter or scope, and good understanding of how computer and the electrical systems on these work you may have to take it to a trans shop. Is it burning up trans or is it just not shifting into 3rd and 4th.
