  1. Just curious if anyone has the same issue I've been having. So on the very first shift of the day from 3-4 my trans seems to slip into gear. After the initial run through the gears it shifts great every single time after that. I have real basic stuff done to my 14 Sierra..cold air intake, cat back exhaust and blackbear tune (yes the trans was tuned). It really seems to be temperature related because it gradually got worse the colder the nights get (I live in the northeast). And no matter how long I let the truck warm up before I drive it, it does the slip but only 1 time. Not sure if this is also related but the tuner said the torque converter locks after the shift into 4th gear.
  2. Hello guys & lady mechanics, I’m in the process of replacing my rear disc brakes, it has 4Wheel anti loc disc brakes. I have the rear rotors with the interior surface for the parking brake shoes. I have new rear backing plates and hardware. But I noticed a little bit of a runout in the axles, I’m assuming it’s normal bearing wear. It has 175,000 miles on it. Plus the brake lines rusted and caused a pedal to the floor issue for me, so I replaced every single brake line with all new stainless steel lines, and new brake hoses. It has new rotors and pads upfront. What I’m trying to find out, since it’s a 14 Bolt GM differential in the rear, what exactly do I have??? 1) Is it a 9 1/2 inch ring gear, 14 bolt rear end, or is it a 10 1/2 inch ring gear 14 bolt rear end? Where can I find this out. I need to order bearings and seals, and a pinion seal which is leaking. which is my next question, 2) how do I determine what size my pinion seal is before I order one? O’Reilly shows 8 options 3) Last question is, I’m assuming I’m going to have to pull the cover, remove the locking pin for the limited slip differential, and push the axle in, pull the retaining clip, and pull the entire axle out to get to the seals and bearings, correct? My plan is to put a new B&M aluminum differential cover and fresh fluid once this is all done… Lastly I wish I would’ve found this side or search prior to doing my brakes, I would’ve found out that GM was offering half off To replace all new brake lines for $500. It’s done now though. Happy holidays you’ll Dave
  3. Well my truck has a shudder when in high gears, it's like hitting the rumble strip, rpm fluxuates 100 or so 150k miles on it all maintenance was done Dealer says needs a new transmission This truck was hardly worked I've owned gm since 1975 very dissatisfied and disappointed with lack of concern Just letting you know after calling around to different dealers, GM knows that issues begin with some transmission around 120k 4500$ repair and only a 50k warranty, shows their level of confidence Good lluck
  4. Hello there, I am having issues with my truck. It is a 2003 silverado 2500HD 4x4 LT with a 6.0L V8 gas engine and 180,000 miles. Aftermarket components on the truck are a K&N cold air intake, Hypertech max energy power programmer, a 2.5" leveling kit, and 33" tires. It started with the truck randomly stalling when switching to reverse gear when parking, and started back up no problem. This has occurred atleast 4 times and does not happen every time. Another issue that is happening is that when at stops and starting to gain speed, at around 5-10 mph, the truck stutters and has a hard time gaining torque and shifting. I have zero issues at medium to high speeds and it shifts fine but it seems to not like going between gears 1-2 it has issues. I have no lights on the dash and the temperatures are at normal ranges. I have had people suggest that it could be a fuel pump problem and also heard it could be the torque converter. Has anyone had similar issues or know what they would suggest might be the problem or need more information from me please respond.
  5. I've read too many articles to count about greasing the slip yoke and not greasing the slip yoke per GM. What is the end all fix for the slip yoke? Nickle plated or what?
  6. Does any one with a 2015 4wd 5.3 crewcab get a clunk from accel and decel? I have been reading about the slip yoke clunk between lower gears like 2-3rd. but mine does it between 5-6 gear
  7. Hi Everyone, Truck is an 84 shortbed K10 with 350/700R4, entirely stock except for the wheels and tires. About two months back, and for reasons related to my stupidity, I accidently ran the trans low on fluid. I learned of this while in O/D on the highway at 60 mph, when I suddenly realized the TC was no longer able to keep a lock. The engine started going up and down, the TQ unlocking and locking. I saw what appeared to be white smoke coming out behind the truck. Pulled it off the highway, checked the fluid and there was no fluid registering on the dipstick. Filled it back up and away I went. I was quite scared that I had destroyed it, but to my surprise discovered that the truck drove fine. TQ locked up as it always did, trans shifts as it always does, firm and smooth, etc. I have even towed the 6x12 enclosed uhaul trailer a couple of times since then. What I've only recently realized is that when I'm going uphill, particularly long stretches of uphill, the truck struggles big time. It's as if the motor is completely gutless, and cannot get the truck up the hill. The trans kicks down to keep the engine in the power band, and the engine runs like a champ, but the truck just slows and slows until the top of the hill. I also see the white smoke that I saw during the earlier empty fluid issue if the hill is long enough, and then a burning smell. After I crest the hill, all is good. Shifts normal, lock up is normal, down hill and on flat stretches everything is fine. Engine is plenty strong from a stop and up to highway speeds. The smoke makes me think of the trans when i had the fluid issue, but I've never heard of a trans seem to "slip" while not slipping. Does that even make sense? While the truck has never been a power house, it has always gotten itself up a hill. Has anyone seen this before? Is the TQ bad? Or the whole thing? Or am I barking up the wrong tree? I have not yet changed the fluid and filter, so I don't know what's in the bottom of the pan. That's on my list for today or tomorrow. Thank you, Don
