It's anyone's guess.

 

Being an intermittent problem that only you know what is feels like is really hard to trouble shoot and it may not even be an actual problem but just the way the transmission acts. I don't remember off hand but some gears have a easy transition into the next gear or during a skip shift. Like 2-4 or 4-6, same with the downshift. Possible that the 3-2 downshift takes more time for the clutch to come off and it fills the next clutch rapidly then grabs abruptly. That may be what you are feeling.

 

 

Or just stop using manual mode. I never manually change gears, just leave it in drive.

I get that too in my 2017.  I learned to wait to make the shift until the vehicle speed slows more and the shift is smoother.  At higher speeds are other gears shift up and down smooth. Something about going down from 3rd to 2nd the transmission doesn't do well unless I slow down more.

what conditions warrant why do you guys manually shift each gear up or down?

 

6 , 8 or 10 speeds trans?

 

there are tables that can dial it in better in the tcm, will require lots of time cleaning up the down shift firmness and clutch fill time, inertia factors etc

      Hello all. I have a 2013 silverado w/5.3l flex vin 7. Basically has rough idle in park and drive. Very poor acceleration. Almost seems to bog down when trying to accelerate. It will occasionally surge and for just a split second I can feel a bit of power.  Also doesn't want to downshift when I lean on the gas pretty heavy. I've got to do near floor it to get it to down ****** and when it does it will drop down 2 gears a lot of the time. No engine light and it won't set any codes. Showed 0 misfires on all cylinders. Long Fuel trims usually in single digits negs. Fuel pressure 43-46psi at idle and highway. I've replaced throttle position sensor, Accelerator pedal position sensor, manifold pressure sensor, mass air sensor, plugs, coolant temp sensor, oxygen sensors. Fuel pump, intake manifold gaskets twice (now with "updated" steel gaskets), throttle body gasket/seal, injector o-rings (upper and lower). Tested all coils for strong spark. Smoke tested for vac leaks along with propane. It has never failed to start or even had a long start and has never died/stalled. I'm just kinda at a loss at this point. Any help will be appreciated and possibly considered. Thanks

      I am wondering if I can fit 35s on a 3in body lift on a 2013 Silverado Z71 4x4. Will I need wheel spacers or offset wheels? Will stock 18in rims work or do I need aftermarket ones? Thanks

      Hello Everyone! Before I get started I want to thank anyone in advanced who responds with pertinent information. 

      I'm looking for a replacement exhaust system for my 09 Silverado 6.2L 4x4 Crew Cab/Short Bed. My current system has lots of rust (living in MD, they heavily salt & brine the roads here) and has sprung an exhaust leak right behind the muffler on one of the pipes.

      I've been searching around (thought it would be easy to find a system) but have not had luck in finding what I have been searching for. There are plenty of systems for 5.3L & 6.0L motors but scant any for 6.2L. 

      On my truck currently is an aftermarket cat back system that was there when I bought the truck (not sure which brand.) It is a single in / dual out muffler with dual pipes going out the bumper.

      Questions:
      What is the factory flange diameter at the end of the factory Y pipe? I'm seeing conflicting information (this will help me determine what muffler to buy if I piece meal a system together) 

      If you have any suggested systems, here's what I'm looking for
      Material: 304L Stainless Steel
      Volume: Loud/Agressive
      Configuration: Dual exit at rear bumper

      I'd consider a long tube header setup w/ high flow cats as well (I would like to maintain all emissions equipment) any suggestions there are also welcome. 

      I can always get a quote from a shop but I wanted to shop around first before I did that.
