No throttle linkage on these models.. they are fully electronic.

Generally its a good idea to get the dealer to run a diagnostic on it. Some of these problems are ECM related, and if caught in time, can save you a costly transmission replacement.

chev 2500 transmission problem

This a problem related to my post earler concerning the transmission not "kicking down" when stomped on entering a highway.
This weekend we had some snow so im thought i'd check out the 4 wheel
drive operation. Put it in 4 wheel and it didn't want to hardly move. Put it in reverse in 4 wheel and it stalled twice. Finally got it to back up by giving it a lot of gas in reverse. Got a bad feeling this tranny is ready for a re-build. Anybody got any advice on what the problem could be, and a rough estimate on cost of repairs?
Thanks.

A follow up......Do i feel stupid!!!! After much head scratching,it turns out the distributor was 'shot'. mechanic replaced the distributor and the truck runs like a champ. A transmission shop said the tranny and drive train was o.k.,but thought the engine was 'junk'. Engine mechanic got into it and found the distributor problem. Whew!!!

Hi: daswede

Did not intentionally mean to imply the combining of two seperate posts into one, as a correction notice. I was reading your question out of my own curiosity, as I often do to any or all question posted and while surfing the new posts, in all forums, for rule and or policy violations, etc.

I had to locate your original post, to determine what the original question pertained to, than read the followup post. Thus continuity was lost. Your question is valid and worthy of reading. If I had the problem of following along, than quite possibly other members would or could have also.

Much has changed in the vehicle industry. New methods and many more electronics are now used which where not available years ago. Now transmissions are control by sensors and not linkage, as they where just a few years ago. We all learn more reading and sharing.....

HAPPY T-DAY to you also.
