2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Question: Problem shifting 2nd to 3rd gear on automatic transmission, shift solenoid

 

Question

Visitor, 4.8L V8, Mercedes, TX, December 16, 2010, 09:54

Have check engine, the computer says it needs the shift solenoid, the problem is it will not shift from 2nd to 3rd gear on an automatic transmission. Also found a vacuum line near to transmission disconnected but not sure where it goes. How much is the cost to replace them? Do I need a new transmission? It turns on fine and shifts fine from 1st to 2nd gear. Has close to 250,000 miles, never had transmission problem before.

    2004 Silervado. Just had my transmission fluid flushed and filled and now my transmission is acting up. Slow shifting from 2 to 3. Cannot run on highway. No Check Engine but dealer says may need shift solenoid. Did they mess something up?
