2004 Chevy Suburban V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 60,000 miles
I have a 2004 Z71 Suburban that I recently purchased with 59000 miles. When I test drove the vehicle the transmission shifted smoothly. On my way home (1000 miles) when stopping for gas the transmission became erratic (jumping) when shifting from 1st to 2nd. The check engine light went on as well. Shifting into 3 and D seemed to be fine. Freeway driving was fine. When I got home I read the code out which was P0894 (trans slipping). This behavior 1st to 2nd happened everytime I stopped along the long trip.
Seems to be associated with the truck when it is hot. I am home now, car transmission is working fine. Another note, the trans fluid level is high (maybe an 1 inch above where it should be) and I do not know when the filter and fluid have been changed last.
have the same problem?
