2001 chevy transmission problem

Hey guys hoping yall could help me with my truck.. I just bought a 2001 Silverado 5.3 with the 4l60e. It has 215k miles. They guy I bought it from sold it because it would not get out of 2nd gear. It was 2 quarts low of transmission fluid. So when you leave it in drive and hit 35mpg it will go like into nuetrol and Rev up I keep it on 2nd and it just keeps going.. I checked the wiring from the transmission to the main fuse box. Checked all the fuses. Been reading up on what people have tried youtube etc and still no luck.. Just wanting to try everything before I have to get a new transmission cause I would hate to have the same problem with a new one.. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated 😊

The 1-2 & 3-4 accumulators are plastic and have been known to crack . Before I remove the trans drop the pan and have a look around and remove both accumulator pistons . Does not cost anything to check . This problem is surely trans internal problem .

Re: 2001 chevy transmission problem

This is typical 3/4 clutch failure. Time for a rebuild. Wish I was close. Would handle for you

Pull dipstick. The fluid should smell burned

Re: 2001 chevy transmission problem

3-4 clutch failure...standard failure from sounds of it...

Make sure the trans shop replaces ALL the solenoids...and the speed sensor....

There are numerous shift improver kits out there....just make sure they increase the plate count in the 3-4 clutch drum...and replace the input drum shell....

New convertor and make sure they flush the cooler lines fully....
