I HAVE A 95 GMC JIMMY AUTOMATIC 2WD V6 4.3 VORTEC AND I HAVE BEEN NOTICING FOR THE LAST MONTH THAT WHEN I START THE TRUCK IT SEEMS THAT THE MOTOR IS REVVED UP AND I NOTICE THAT THE RPMS ARE KINDA HIGH BEFORE I EVEN PRESS THE GAS PEDAL, BUT WHEN IT WARMS UP IT WOULD IDLE NORMALLY...AND THEN THE OTHER NIGHT I WENT TO THE GROCERY STORE AND WHEN I WAS READY TO LEAVE THE TRUCK WOULDN'T REVERSE AT ALL WHEN I PUT IN "REVERSE", SO I HAD TO HAVE SOME GUYS HELP ME PUSH IT OUT OF THE PARKING SPACE I WAS IN, AND I WAS ABLE TO DRIVE HOME BUT I NOTICED THAT IT SEEMED TO NOT SHIFT GEARS RIGHT (KINDA LIKE IT WOULD SKIP 2ND AND GO INTO 3RD BUT IT DIDN'T CAUSE THE TRANSMISSION TO JUMP OR MAKE ANY GRINDING NOISES OR ANYTHING)I AM SO SCARRED THAT I AM GOING TO HAVE TO REPLACE OR HAVE MY TRANSMISSION COMPLETELY REBUILT, AND I AM HOPING THAT THERE MIGHT BE SOMETHING ELSE THAT COULD BE CAUSING IT? IF ANYONE HAS HAD THE SAME SORT OF ISSUE WITH THERE VEHICLE AND KNOW EXACTLY WHAT CAUSED IT I WOULD APPRECIATE ANY ADVICE THAT ANYONE COULD GIVE ME...OF COURSR I KNOW I AM GOING TO HAVE TO TAKE IT TO A TRANNY SHOP FOR A COMPLETE DIAGNOSIS BUT I WOULD KINDA LIKE TO KNOW A LIL BIT ABOUT WHAT COULD BE THE CAUSES OF THE PROBLEM, BECAUSE SINCE I AM A WOMAN IT SEEMS THAT THE PAST EXPERIENCES THAT I HAVE HAD WITH MOST MECHANICS HAVEN'T ALWAYS BEEN THE BEST, AND SOME ARE GONNA TELL ME I NEED A WHOLE NEW OR REBUILT TRANSMISSION BUT IF THERE IS ANOTHER PART THAT COULD BE CAUSING MY PROBLEM OR IF ONLY A CERTAIN PART OF THE TRANSMISSION CAN BE FIXED WITHOUT HAVING TO COMPLETELY REBUILD THE WHOLE THING I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW SO I DON'T LOOK SO NAIVE AND GULLIBLE WHEN I GO TO SPEAK WITH A MECHANIC...I APPRECIATE ANYONE THAT CAN HELP ME UNDERSTAND WHAT COULD BE THE PROBLEM! :)
