Thread: Stuck in Gear

  1. #1

    Default Stuck in Gear

    About once a month my truck will refuse to shift into first gear when taking off. When sitting a stop light, then taking off the truck will start to take off in 2nd gear then shift hard back down into first. Is this a computer problem or what?

    Sounds like a computer problem in the tranny. That's just weird.

    I had this problem in a 1989 S-10 blazer I had. I had the transmission rebuilt because of this, the repair tech told me it was the synchro mesh in the transmission that was causing the problem. I am not a transmission guy myself so i really don't know if they lied to me or not but once it was rebuilt I never had that problem again. Just for good measure once the transmisson was rebuilt I put in a new clutch, pressure plate and throw out bearing too so it was like a new truck again once we were both done with our individual parts of that repair. saved me having to go back and tear everything out again at a later time when the old clutch went out. that transmission was heavy in that truck even though it was a 2wd and i really didn't care to have to take that thing apart again if i didn't have to
