Chevy S10 - GMC S15 and Sonoma Transmission Problems



  • nucormannucorman Posts: 2
    The only code its shown is that the TPS was bad and I replaced that, but it still acts up from time to time. The odd part is if I shut it off and turn it right back on the problem is gone. The truck has 100k miles on it. Thanks
  • Every time i press my clutch pedal and go to shift it feels like something is blocking the way. Now i cant even shift into any gears. The clutch pedal goes down and i go to shift i can feel the teeth just slipping by. I havent had to deal with a clutch too much so any comments would help

    Drive the truck for about mile ,tranny starts to slip will not accelerate,make a complete stop ,turn truck off and start again and this time it will move and does it again....

    I have lost overdrive and reverse. When I drive it now it shifts real high and real hard. I have heard that it could be the shift module or it needs to be rebuilt. I really dont have the money to rebuild it. If any one has any idea please let me kno.

    No reverse, not good , you need a rebuild, no way out.

    I was afraid of that ,is there a diffrence in price rebuild or replace
  • gonogogonogo Posts: 869
    Not sure about pricing, make some calls to local shops. From what I have read stay away from chain shops, reputation not good. I have read Jasper makes a good replacement.

    1984 gmc 2.8 v6 4speed auto will not shift to 3rd and overdrive gears, trans has new oil and filter, speedo doesnt work, could this have anything to do with the problem? fmacoy.

    No good news, no forward in 1, not good. No electrical used in manual 1. You need a good used one or rebuilt.
    Did you check fluid level?

    Have a 98 Sonoma 4x4 was driving down the highway at 65mph and got this loud whining noise at cruising speed. When I accelerated harder the noise quieted a bit but loudened as I slowed again.

    As I pulled off highway the noise grew from a whine to a loud buzz and clicking. The noise persisted for a while. The transmission seemed to shift fine, no loss of power. The belt, brakes, are fine. I gunned it testing out the and the noise cleared up.

    Any thoughts?
