1992 GMC 3500 Pickup ProblemsService transmission every 30,000 miles
Our technicians highly recommend that the transmission is serviced every 30,000 miles to avoid problems and maintain optimal operating order. As for the 4L80-E Transmission (Diesel adn 7.4L gas engine), Transmission fluid may leak through the electrical connector on the side of the transmission, damaging the wire harness and causing the transmission to shift erratically. Our technicians tell us there are updated shift solenoids, an internal transmission harness, and a connector pigtail available to correct this fault.
One or more heater & AC (HVAC) temperature and/or air delivery mode door actuator may fail, resulting in improper temperature or air delivery. If this occurs, fault code(s) should be stored in the HVAC control module which should assist in diagnoses.
The quick-connect fittings for the heater hoses tend to leak engine coolant. This problem commonly occurs because the metal housing has become brittle, which can break and cause leaks.

The bolts that secure the seat recliner to the seat frame may loosen, fatigue and fracture, causing the seat back to recline suddenly. Dealers will remove all foam and fabric sandwiched between the recliner and frame, install washers between them, and install new bolts, tightening them to a higher torque specification free of charge to resolve the concern.
