    Exclamation havin some tranny probs

    i have a fairly new 2003 suburban and it seems to be one problem after another. after blowing out both cats at two times and havin a MAF sensor go bad now the trans is dyin . it will shift from 1 to 2 a lil late not to bad but wont shift to third. it remains in second and at the usual shift point for 2 to 3 the trans disengages and the engine freely spools up. we tried shifting manually but no luck. it remained in second. any suggestions. i believe it may be a torq converter problem.
    thank you in advance for any advice

    my friend, shes done. my 96 silverado did the exact same thing.....twice! your best bet at this point since it sounds like you lost the 3rd and 4th clutch packs is a rebuild. whats the tranny? 4L60E? if so, i've had a few guys tell me they only last to about 80,000 - 100,000 miles. :slap:<<<< sorta what GM did to us with a 4L60E's
