    Default GMC 3500 Tranny issue

    1995 GMC 3500 w/454 tranny rebuilt due to shifting to 2nd and then not going up or down. Remains in 2nd until the vehical is turned off. Still doing this ocasionally after the rebuild. Any suggestions. Not throwing a code for the shop to pull.

    Welcome to the Club!!! Sorry to hear that you are having tranny problems and unfortunately I'm not that familiar with them in order to provide any advice/suggestions. If you do not receive a response shortly, you may want to try posing your question in the Powertrain section (please click link below). That should garner you a quicker response than the Member Intro section.

    Good luck!

    I may be way off in left field here, but we have had minor shift problems on both our 2500 4x4 that we push snow with them, and it has always been linkage tweaks that have cured our issues,,, the shift solenoid makes a lot of sense too, but when you shut it down you would put it in park which would reset all links.. worth a quick check....
