    I've got an 04 suburban with 14600 miles, I can drive for about a mile then it coast as if in neutral i can pullover sit for 5 min then the same thing over again. the tranny fluid is dark need to know if getting a total system flush with filter change will help

    First take it in and have it checked to see if its throwing any tranny codes your average code reader cant do this. and it only has 14K miles or is it 146K miles? and 4wd or 2wd?

    i took it already to Aamco they said no codes but needs to be rebuilt, they didn't want me to take the trk to another shop, I just can't believe no codes at all. do yopu think flushing the system will help???

    As mentioned in the PM it might help for a little bit but it seems that either your Torque converter or else the clutch pack is fried. and i would happily take it to another shop, expecially when they dont want you to. But ive had trannies go out like that before where they would drive when cold and then not when warm. There may be other things but id say you in for a rebuild or new/rebuilt replacement (which can sometimes be cheaper than actually having someone rebuild your tranny)
