What else can happen to me today !?
This morning some ******* tried to stole my wallet ! But it's OK, I am fine, my wallet too ;-)
I am writing this post cause there is something wrong with my Cadi.
No 2nd gear ! My tranny won't shift from 1th to 2nd or from 3rd to 2nd too.
The fluid level is OK, it looks and smells OK!
Do you think it is the end of my tranny ? (151000 miles on it)
Any suggestions ?

TIA

What can I say.
Don't hit a man when he's down - kick him; it's easier

Thanks Carl,

I expected it, I just wasn't sure if it is not some ECU / electrical problem.
I will check it tomorrow at the shop.

Paul, how often was the fluid changed? Have you had the truck since new? You may have not lost the whole trans, but with your high miles..........:(

Fluid was changed every 25-30 k miles. I am the second owner of this truck.
The mileage is mostly highway, but I know 150 k miles it is not so bad.
I was at tranny shop today, they removed the pan, they found some dirt on magnet and they replaced some valves + fluid.
It didn't changed anything and ... transmission needs to be rebuild :-(

I hope next week my tranny will be as good as new one ;-)

Best regards

If it helps any, "sorry". That is not bad life out of an almost decade old 4wd truck tranny.

OK! Just to keep you informed ;-) Tranny rebuild, Lade alive :thumbsup:
Torque converter and 2/4 gear sunshell + planetary set broken.
How come it worked :confused:

Thanks for support ;-)

Did you see the parts?

Yes, of course. they showed me everything the day they disassembled the transmission. I cannot say anything about converter, but it's not big deal. The sunshell was broken a bit and I saw some wear at gears.
