First, lemme start with the truck,.... 1996 GMC Suburban 350/Auto, Dual air 4X4 175,XXX on the clock Now on to the questions. Im a new owner, and have never owned a vehicle this size. I am a single U.S. Marine on active duty, and have never had the need for a truck this huge. I will be using this truck to tow my weekend toy (small version of the Jeep Cherokee) to and from the trail head as ofter as i can. I bought the truck from a good friend, and i knew when i got it that the transmission would need to be replaced. The thing is, that he had it replaced about 10,000 miles ago. Needless to say, it wasnt done right, and the original owner wasted whatever he paid to have it done. As of now, i have 1st, and second with a normal shift pattern, but once it lets go of 2nd, it revvs to about 3500 rpms as it looks for 3rd. It finally finds 3th, but only after i let off of the throttle, and it never even attempts to look for overdrive. Reverse is fine. The fluid is burned, and the check engine light is on.( i will be putting it on a scanner tommorrow afternoon) If i assume the worst, and in fact its gonna need a complete rebuild, where do you guys reccommend i go for a reliable (labor reimbursed warranty claim) that i can do business with either online, or in the southern california area? I have been looking around, and i have read about the less than desireable factory sunshell. The previous owner said the guy that rebuilt it mentioned that the sunshell was cracked pretty bad. With any luck, i can find a rebuild that has the "beast" that i have read good things about. Any hep that you guys have would be appreciated. Echo Seven Delta Out!
