    Default 2005 avalanche 2wd [Expired Topic]

    Is it just mine are all they all slow? I took mine in with 45K and chevy had to replace all the lifters on the pass side. Now its a little quicker but still really sloooow. I have a 2003 tahoe with the 5.3 and it will get up and go. It's got 160K. It always feel like the transmission is shifting up and down all the time or slipping or something. There is the right amount of fluid in it and it is red, no bubbles and no white. It actually feels like its the transmission thats holding the motor back. I just wondered if anyone else has that feels the same.

    I've never heard anything like that before. Does the performance seem any different from when the tranny is cold vs hot?

    Not really. It just seems like I have to push the pedal down pretty far to get the thing to go. and even then, it feels very sluggish. Come to think of it, I have the adjustable foot pedals, maybe there is something wrong there... Don't know.
