I have 1997 GMC yukon with 260,000 miles on it. I was headed to school the other day, and as I accelerated I heard a loud pop and my truck began to shimmy servilely. I got it home, started it up, and when I put it in reverse it makes sounds like metal slapping. It will not go in forward or reverse. Only makes a the noise when shifting into reverse, and sometimes makes a whining type sound. I'm sure the transmission is trashed, I just wanted to make sure before taking it for repairs. I haven't had good luck in the past with mechanics.
Transmission seems to be broke? on 1997 GMC Yukon

based on the years and mileage, your Yukon is not worth the cost of a new or reman transmission.

i agree, it sounds internal and the unit would have to be pulled anyway to check. get a bid from a trans shop and ask about the warranty thanks for using repairpal Roy
