2001 Chevy Blazer 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 185000 miles
About 60,000 miles ago I had the tranmission rebuilt. Recently, it started doing something pretty strange. I'm on my way to work and within 10 minutes of starting out I'm on the highway. After getting up to speed on the highway and the trans is in 4th gear all of the sudden it's like it's in neutral. To keep going I pull it down into 3rd gear and it goes into gear properly and holds OK. After about 30 - 60 seconds I put it back in 4th gear and it holds. After that, it's fine for the rest of the trip. The shifts are solid and it doesn't slip. The only other thing I've ever noticed is after it's up to operating temp, if I'm at a stop light and gently accelerate from a stop, there's a split second pause before 1st gear catches completely. I don't know if that's related but I thought it might be helpful info.
Any help is appreciated. Thanks
have the same problem?
