2002 Chevy Venture 6 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 217000 miles
For the last few months, my wifes 02 Venture AWD has been making a whining noise which sounds like its coming from the transmission. Twice I've taken it to the dealership and they are telling me the transmission is shot, that it will cost me ~$3K for a new one w/50K mile warranty.
However, I can still shift the van and it drives, though there seems to be a little slippage; we've stopped driving it to be on the safe side. After doing some research on my own, I've found that it is a 4T65-E transmission; that there could be a solenoid, sensor, linkage, or transmission pump failure. Can you give me some advice on what to look for to determine if it is actually failing and what can be done?
have the same problem?
