Hi I just had a rebuild transmission put in my 06 Chevy Silverado truck. It ran fine for a couple of day now it doesn’t get any gears.
Well I would say you’ve got a problem again in the transmission. Was it rebuilt by someone that knew what they were doing?
Yes it was by a machine shop.
Something had to break or go bad inside the trans again to cause your problem…I’d recommend taking it back to who did the work on it and have it fixed again. Whoever is responsible for the work…did you have two different places do the work?
Yes I had bought a rebuilt transmission from a mechanic shop and had it replaced.
Alright, I guess who you purchased the rebuilt transmission you from would have to fix it.
I would also like to know where the blend door that controls temperature is located on my 1994 Chevrolet C1500 v6 pickup. It is not heating enough. The coolant system is at good levels and no leaks are present. -Robert
The door itself is inside the heater case behind the dash, but I doubt the door is your problem. You probably have a bad temperature door actuator, or a wiring/vacuum problem to that actuator.
2001 Chevy 1500 Binding Up
I have a 2001 Chevy 1500 with 5.3 V-8 and at times it feels like some thing is hold my truck from moving freely almost like some thing is binding up a bit. At times when your going down a small grade and let off the throttle it will decrease in speed, going up a small grade it seems you need more throttle I drive the same road 2 times a day
Answer: Going down a grade and your Chevy truck is slowing down sounds like the transmission is in a lower gear. If this happens only sometimes, make sure to feel for a downshift as you start going down the hill. The truck should not do that. May sound silly, but make sure the gear shifter is in the D overdrive range.
No Heat From Drivers Side Vents
Hi, my 94 c1500 v6 has a heater actuator problem. I have no heat from the drivers side vents. I believe its the one that controls the temperature. Is this particular actuator in a place that is hard to get at? My coolant levels are good with no leaking.
Your particular truck had a couple different HVAC options. The temp actuator is either located on the bottom of the heater case, which is fairly easy to get at…or on top of the heater case, which in that instance would require removal of the entire dash assembly and is a very time consuming job. If you go to your local GM dealer, the parts department can show you a picture of where yours is exactly located.
Thank you Protech. I will do that.
You’re welcome, have a nice night.
1996 Silverado Ticking Noise
1996 Silverado, 2 wheel drive, extended cab. I was towing a trailer and from a dead stop heard a ticking noise that coincided with the same rpm as the driveline. within seconds it went away. Ever since then between 50 and 65 mph I get a vibration. I replaced the rear u joint and the carrier bearing and it seemed to help slightly. The front u joint is good. Any ideas? We have a big race Sat and I need to find out whats going on.
It could be something as simple as the driveshaft being out of balance. Since the u-joint replacement and bearing replacement seemed to help your issue, you may want to consider changing the front one as well, just to eliminate that as a cause. If you still experience the vibration, try rotating the tires and see if that helps. Another possibility is a wheel bearing or the brakes. Vibrations can be one of the most difficult things to diagnose properly unless the problem is blatantly staring you in the face. Good Luck!

My 2004 Chevrolet Silverado is blowing hot air out of vents. at times when i restart it the problem is fixed for minutes sometimes for hours then it does it again what can it be. the door actuator was replaced supposedly @ dealer while under warranty but the problem is back.
You could have a bad actuator again, or a different actuator causing the problem. There has also been some issues with the connectors on the passenger side fuse block. There is a service bulletin from Chevrolet about that concern. You might want to return to the dealership and see if it can be fixed again under warranty. If the same part has failed, and it’s been less than 12 months or 12,000 miles, they should replace it for free. If they need to do the service bulletin, that should only be a minimal charge. If you have a different issue, then obviously it would cost more.
I have a 1996 Chevy silverado and the AC only blows on high. what could be the problem?
ProTech: Usually when you have a problem like that where the only blower speed that works is high, you end up having a shorted out blower motor resistor. The resistor assembly controls the speeds that the blower runs as you move through the positions from low to high. These burn up from the heat of voltage running through them over the years and the proximity to the heater case. A pretty easy repair, you can change out the resistor assembly in just a few minutes. It is located under the right side of the dash, right next to the blower motor in the heater case.
I have a 2004 Chevy Silverado and when the a/c first comes on everything works fine. After a few minutes the left side vents blow hot air while the right side vents continue to blow cold air. What could this be and how expensive is the repair?
ProTech: This is a common problem, and what is causing your issue is the left side air temperature actuator. The actuator itself is usually under $100 from any GM dealer. To replace it, you will need to remove some of the left side lower dash trim. Look way up under the dash and you will see two actuators, one is the mode control actuator and the other is the left side temp actuator. The parts department at the GM dealer can print you out a picture to show you which one is which. To remove the old actuator, there are a few very small screws. Align the new actuator with the temperature door and install the screws again. You will need to perform an actuator relearn procedure, and if you don’t have a scanner to do so, just remove the fuse for the HVAC control head for about a minute.
