Why does my 2001 Silverado keep chewing through Transmissions?
I have a 2001 Chevy Silverado 4x4 Extended cab pickup.
With about 230,000 miles, my transmission went out where it wouldn't shift into 4th gear. I bought a rebuilt transmission with a 2 year warranty. It went out after about 400 miles. The guy honored his warranty, but after about 2 more years this transmission went out. I then found a cheapo craiglist transmission that lasted only about 1,000 miles. But recently, I put in another rebuilt transmission which had a 5 year warranty. This one immediately showed worrisome signs in that on long trips, it would start shifting hard after about 45 minutes. After about 8 months and 4,000 miles it too went out. My question is: Could there be some other issue with the truck that is causing transmissions to prematurely burn out? Or do I just have bad luck?
Have you tried Monster or TCI. These guys put in all the updated and stronger parts.
Sure, there could be an issue. Did you run a diagnostic scan?
You could have:
-a blocked cooler or lines.
- a loose driveshaft banging around.
- faulty sensors giving bad shifting data.
how exactly are the transmissions failing?
