Not a 4.3 V6, the smaller version of V6, 2.8. 4WD, Auto.
Seller says it will not shift into 3rd. So when this shift fails it pops into neutral, as he tells me, or just "glides", not too certain on the popping into Neutral. I haven't driven it, for it's for sale as is. Anyone heard of this, and is it a simple/cheap or MAJOR/E$PENSIVE repair?

It will need a tranny or the one in it overhauled.By the way 2.8 v-6 is a junk engine in my opinion.I would advise you to steer clear of this one.

Roger that

The grass was a bit too dead under it, must've been up for sale for a while. Just thought I'd inquire due to the fact that the winters we have, the 4wd aspect looked good....Thanks
