    Had Transmission changed shouldn't the torque converter have been changed also?
    50,300. Had transmission changed 6/2012. Few months later started changing gears very rough. It's like its jumping into gear when changing. Gets worse when the weather is warm. Nothing shows up on the computer when they hook it up. But with a new not rebuilt ...

      Every time that I had automatic transmissions changed, the torque converter was replaced. Old fluid and debris in the old torque converter can and will contaminate the new fluid in transmission. Also the transmission oil cooler and all lines should be thoroughly flushed to avoid contamination.

    I stopped in for a free check engine scan at a local shop. the tech pulled the codes and told me I need a transmission.
    My car runs fine. My son checked the transmission fluid and it is red and the correct level. I have no stalling, no shaking, the gears move smoothly. is he lying to me?
    • John's Auto Repair
      Did it happen to be a transmission shop? Why did you want your computer scanned? If the vehicle
      is running fine, I doubt you would need a complete transmission replacement. Go to any major
      parts store like AutoZone, Advanced, etc. They will scan your codes for free, also. Let me know
      what they find.

      Well in a word, yes he is lying. I know of no fault code that would automatically go to "bad transmission". You need to buy your own code reader at for about $20 and plug it in and read the codes and then post the code or codes here. Don't panic and agree to any service yet.

    Why will my pickup not go into any of the drive gears when I shift?
    It will go into park and reverse and neutral but when I shift into drive or low 2 or 1, it will not engage. After sitting for a while it will go then I can shift it into drive and it is fine.

      As the first tsep - check the transmission fluid level, refill as necessary. Another possibility is a clogged fluid filter. When was the most recent fluid and filter service performed? A clogged trans filter can block fluid flow to one or more forward gears.

    Can I bolt this motor directly to transmission without more parts or do I have to have a adapter piece?
    Also can you tell me if this is connected together how long it would be from front of motor to drive axle?

      Not sure - you left out details; what type and year transmission? Is the transmission a manual or automatic? If manual, what clutch and bellhousing (if any) will be used?

      Need more information - what type of automatic transmission? Is this the model 6L80E six speed transmission? If yes, then no adapter is needed as it will bolt directly to the 6.2L engine.

    My transmission is in limp mode.
    my transmission went into limp mode this morning and won't come out.

      I'm not the final answer on transmission questions but in all cases that I have seen of this limp mode, hooking up a code reader or any scan tool and erasing whatever codes have set for the tranny usually (at least for the moment or until the next day) restores normal function. The tranny of course will need to be fixed but sometimes just this gets you going for an unknown amount of time until you select a shop fpor the fix. Once you know the fault codes you can even research the cause yourself.

    Trbl.code P1875 4wd low switch circuit
    it wont go into 4wd

      For the P1875 code there is a very strong probability that the Transfer Case Control Module (TCCM) is no good. It is behind the right kick panel.

      The TCCM is available in the aftermarket - try these sources;,,,, - to list only a few possibilities. For example, they (RockAuto) list the TCCM - from around $229.00 for your vehicle.

    Why won't 4wd drive lock in?
    4wd is electronic; activated by push-button actuator located on dash. I have replaced this once; a couple years ago; problem solved. Put a new one in this time- didn't work. When I attempt to go from 2wd to either 4hi or 4lo by putting the vehicle in neutral and ...

    Why wont my four wheel drive engage when I push the button?
    The four wheel drive will not engage at any speed. It will go into four wheel drive low when at a stop and in neutral. I have replaced the vacuum lines as they had holes and were brittle.

      Check the fuse box to make sure there are no blown fuses related to the 4 wheel drive.The actuator mounted on the transfer case could be faulty also.
