I did go through the procedure of shifting through all the gears, as that was specified in a few place, and I figure it was a safe bet with the car stopped to get fluid through the gears. I had the abs sensors replaced 2-3 years ago due to rust, at a service center not at the dealer, and now the replacement ones are bad. Hear fluid coming out from under driver side door undercarriage. Sounds like you're perfectly capable of doing it yourself, just be really careful with those hydraulic lines. The dealership that I took the truck to had 3 other people with similar problems. As I said about 100 times in that thread, I was recalling a specific instance with my Impala.
I have to slow down and drive off the freeway. Seemed like torque converter issues. The mechanic replaced a part of the brake line and informed the contact the repair was a temporary fix. Check out our complete line of products. While driving approximately 30 mph approaching a red light, the brakes suddenly failed; the brake pedal extended to the floorboard.
So when I did have problems the recall repairs were already exhausted; I inquired what the dealer did when I took it to them for recall; the dealer told me the cleaned the abs sensors to satisfy the recall order. Granted, there is apparently a shift linkage bracket that makes the pan difficult to remove. I live on a very steep hill and that would have been very bad if I didn't notice problem. One of the most important part in a car is the brakes. My truck just had it's umpteenth computer recall done last Friday. I change all my drive train fluids and get the factory fill out of there before 5000 miles on all my new vehicles. The older I get in life 33 now seems like the more I'm going more and more to the idea that I want the last year of a car, engine, trans etc.
I was simply assuming that the vehicle did something to trigger that. I was told by Chevy garage there was a fix for the extended cab version but not my regular cab truck. This line was a separate line from the other three out of four lines that were replaced. All extended-cab models have a three-place rear bench and either a front bench that holds three or two buckets. The owner continued driving the vehicle, and has hard shifting. Then, dealer changed fluid and filter, and instructed the owner that he could continue driving it until it absolutely had to be repaired. Automatic transmission was another issue that was addressed while under warranty.
I'd imagine if it were brown or something there would be a problem- the fluid is red when new right? Waited to 65,000 miles, changed it again- Chevy dealer chaged it- trans was leaking fluid after a week of them changing it. Generally there is a lot of fluid left in the torque converter, trans cooler, and associated lines. As of yet I haven't repaired the rusty lines but I am going to save them in case there is a recall so I can show them to someone. Over a period of time this would cause the transmission to fail. I do not use my truck in mud or on the beach and I do not live in a state with harsh winter salt issues.
This also happened to the front brake lining in 2007. Because i'm avoid a whole transmission flush so it would have to mix if i used Dexron V I. Not doing that with my Cruze, just going to run the trans fluid until the damn thing blows up. Brake line was severely corroded and the area where the leak is occurring can be squeezed together with finger pressure. It's like people forget this song and dance. I just feel better about it and switching it out to a full synthetic to help on cold morning warm ups and protect on hot day towing tasks. Performance Chevy's full-size trucks are competitive with the Ford F-Series and Dodge Ram in most key areas, though Chevy's styling is more conservative and Ford already offers crew-cab models.
Crew Cab or Standard Cab Pickup, Transmission model: 4L60-E. While going home later that day I was going down a slight hill when I hit my brakes and pedal went to floor. As for when to check the fluid, I've checked under hot and cold conditions. All they wanted to do is have me tow the truck to a dealer and have them inspect it. Sometimes I think it's better to just leave some things alone. Consumer is very concerned about the safety hazard of the transmission hesitating while in traffic.
The truck has the towing package and is heavy duty on the transmission. I feel that this is serious safety hazard to other drivers on the road. I'm willing to bet that there are a lot of trucks being looked at for this same problem. My garage informed me my brake lines are all eaten up by rust - though truck was undercoated. Personally, I would either disconnect the trans cooler lines and do a redneck flush discharge line in bucket, intake line in new fluid or just pay a trusted shop to do a full flush with a machine. Several dealers told me it was normal, another said it was problem with the 5.
I spoke to a transmission shop and they said they they get a lot of the same problems and I would like general motors to repair it since they haven't fixed this problem with the 4l60 e transmission in the last 11 or so years they've used it. All 1999 extended-cab Silverados and early 2000 models came with two conventional front doors and a third door on the passenger side that opens to the rear. Now, tcc valve is sticking causing a delayed gear engagement. I had no warning of this problem , my bake pedal was fine right up to the second that line burst and the brake pedal went to the floor. I barely managed to stop in time and got turned around to get my 2000 chevy silverado back in my driveway. My only reason for fighting the point was due to the crude nature of the response I received and being a text based message, perhaps I read a certain tone that didn't exist, but I don't think that was the case.
