Thread: Transmission Problem...
09-21-2009, 10:49 PM #1
Ok, I'm new to the forum and my name is Kenneth Harrington, I'm from this small town named Crowley that's located in Louisiana.
Well ok people I have a 1999 Chevy Silverado z71 that just got the transmission rebuilt and put back together, and now the trans won't shift out of 1st gear. People said I may have to blow out the lines? How do I do that? And how hard is that to do? And could that be the problem? I'm just curious because I can't really drive it daily like this and I would like to get it fixed.
So if you know the problem and if yall can please tell me how to blow the lines out and how hard that would be to do. I'd appreciate it.

They said they forgot to clean the lines out. I just told them I was gonna do it myself. I'm just wondering how hard is it to do & how to do it?
And yeah I watch the fireworks shows, they are pretty awesome!

Hey thanks Unplugged. And Jimmiee I'm trading my 1999 z71 for another one and that is the one with the tranny problems. I'm thinkin bout doing to because it has a 10" suspension lift with 39.5 Iroks and 5:13 gears front and back. I'm not sure who rebuilt the trans and who installed it, but the guy said he was wrong and that the truck shifts from 1st to 2nd then it won't shift into high gears. He told me the lines wear dirty or w/e and they forgot to blow them out or w/e. So i'm not sure what's the problem with it. If anyone knows what could be the problem feel free to help
And as far as the speed sensor and the MLP problem...how hard is it to change? And how much are those to change?
