1998 Chevy Silverado 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 200000 miles
Transmission started slipping about two weeks ago. Mabe slipped once every 3 days and just a little slip. Tonight, it slipped a couple of times on our way to the in-laws' house. On the way home, it lost overdrive and third gear. It's an automatic. First and second work fine with no slippage, but overdrive and third will not kick in at all. Reverse is fine.
Transmission is only 5 years old as it was replaced in November 05 with a totally brand new trans. Also, when we got home, although it didn't slip in 2nd, it had over 3K rpms and had a burning smell when we parked. Any idea if this is something fixable or if we're looking at ANOTHER new transmission? If so, how much can I reasonably expect to fork over for this (ballpark figure). I'd prefer to have a fix or a rebuild at the most, but you gotta do what you gotta do.
have the same problem?
