My 09 Silverado transmission is not shifting like it should all the time. I can drive it days without any issues then out of the blue I'll take off from a stop and it shifts extremely hard into 2nd. Other times it feels like it's slowly sliding into 2nd gear and takes longer then it should to shift. If I turn the truck off and wait about 15 seconds and start it back up it will shift without any issues and might stay that way for several days. I had autozone check it out because it kept triggering the check engine light and they said it was the transmission friction element A. So I took it to a actually mechanic and he didnt even get that code. His scanner got 2 codes reading transmission input sensor. Has anyone experienced the same problems or does anyone have some advice for me? It would be very much appreciated. Thanks

So I have this 2000 Silverado with a 4L60E auto transmission. It’s got over 200k miles. The 4.3 v6 engine runs great, but half of the time the transmission will barely move the truck. (This is a standard cab 2wd version.) if I’m stopped and I put it in reverse I have to give it a really heavy push on the gas to get it to move.. but on the other side of the coin it will work fine sometimes. The transmission will search aimlessly for a gear but works fine once it finds one. Some days it won’t go over 30mph and other days it works just fine. Could I just have a bad filter or something or do I need a new transmission? Thanks!

Hey guys, I'm sure this has been discussed a few times over but am not proficient enough in these trucks to know what I need to get my truck back to work.
My current 4l60e is doing the normal stuff and am looking to completely rebuild it to handle the work. I have a 15 yard dump with trailer that I take back and forth to the landfill to service my RV Park's Trash. I also use it for heavy construction material and gravel.
Can someone please point me to all the right parts or kit that I need to fully rebuild this transmission. I have also read of adding a transmission cooler to the mix. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I hope everyone out there is hanging in there safe and healthy!

My 1993 Silverado K1500 is throwing code 59. From what I can find this indicates that the transmission fluid sensor circuit voltage is high, which would mean that the sensor is telling the computer that the fluid is too hot? If I clear the codes and start the truck cold, it immediately throws this code. So I know **for sure** that the transmission isn’t actually hot. My question is, how should I go about diagnosing this? Is the sensor external and is there a way I can test to be sure the wiring is right? Or is it internal and should just be replaced?
Appreciate any pointers you can give me.
