Primary Use: Utility towing boats, transporting cargo, etc. Now the coolant can enter if the engine is… With factory size tires and a good running engine, it'll do 0-60 in about 7-8 seconds. Well all I can do at this point is wait to see what they say on Thursday. I asked the dealership to look into why the transmission would have blown at 48,000 miles, but they said that was hard to determine and just took the old one out and put the new in. I left the truck at his shop and he's supposed to work on it today.
Also, get under your Silverado and try moving the center bearing. The lines to the cooler were outside temperature, not hot at all. The Hose engine next to the line was hot of course. Anyone have this Problem and if so what was the fix? At the time of purchase, the vehicle had 39,000 miles on it. Question, should I insist that my mechanic flush all the Fluid out again?? Upon being inspected by the dealer, it was found to be blown. I'm going to keep an eye on it. I will let you know what I find out tomorrow.
Seems like fluid is getting stuck in that area and theres no circulation. Something with a high mileage transmission would have a sloppy gear change, 1st gear will do 33mph at 5400rpm and second will do 70mph at 5400rpm, and 3rd will bring the truck to its limiter at 100mph. I do what I need to do when the truck needs it. No problem with the engine or transmission Heck Of A Truck, Complete Monster That Still Has Potential For More. By morning I went to Aramco and they did a diagnostic on the transmission and they reported a gear broke. I pulled an engine code P0894 Component in Transmission Slipping. It's been running about 170.
Buying a used 2004 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 transmission from a non-reliable dealer is an unnecessary risk. After spending the hard earned money that this thing cost, the expectation would be for the drive train to last longer than this. Buy a recycled 2004 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 transmission and save thousands of dollars. I suspect I should be good for another 8 years. Both places said the same, transmission is blown. No codes, no lights, just bang.
It didn't help, the truck was still overheating with no load or towing and the Torque Converter wasn't locking up. We love when auto parts experts come to our site and we love when car parts newbies come to our site. Exactly that with no warning. Always feels like your in control. Prior to this, the Temp would come closer to red-line. Wondering if this could be something other than a center support bolt or burnt up reverse band??? Was backing a heavy trailer put in drive to straighten up and then went back to reverse and was like it was in neutral.
I finally found 2nd gear would move the truck forward, so I limped it to an Autozone and checked the transmission fluid. This truck gets only about 10 to 12 mpg city with its 6. Te 2004 truck was extremely well cared for and maintained. The line on the bottom drivers side was touchable and the line on the passenger side top and bottom weren't hot at all. My transmission went south as I was heading in to the Red Wings game last week, 2200 miles on the truck. This guy won't be in business too long.

I wouldn't be surprised if he kept my coolant to sell to another customer. Transmission began slipping on the way to work, had it towed into a shop and it will need a total rebuild. I haven't had it looked at yet, but I am sure I will have to address the problem. What was so aggravating about the whole thing was that I had reported the problem to local Chevy house and the truck would not act up. It didn't just go out, it was completely destroyed because most of the clutches fell out when the pan was pulled. There is no excuse for this.

My transmission went south as I was heading in to the Red Wings game last week, 2200 miles on the truck. Thursday it was taken to two local well known transmission repair shops. Just seems kind of crazy. I was 700 miles over. Wish I had a diagram for the cooling lines of the Tranny. My Mechanic bypassed the cooler and the radiator, I'm not sure which one first. The engine running hot came after the tranny running hot.
Is it only '04 models with certain build dates? It is going to cost me way too much to replace the transmission. The cooling line on the drivers side top of the radiator was very hot after driving it. Pretty disappointing… Anyway, mine was making a grinding type noise when in reverse going at a moderate speed. They must have changed the tranny by then but I'm not sure. Do have power locks that lock when truck is put in gear and unlock when out of gear and have had trouble with them and also trouble with rear window rolling up and down on its own and not rolling up for me. I was damn near rear ended by a car which I'm sure the driver thought I was going to fly around the turn since it was rush hour. It seems he's the type to want to save money for his customers.
