This car shifts fine when you first take off, but then it doesnt down shift fully. I think the code its pulling is 2-3 valve sticking.
Just wondering if it something that can be fixed easily or if it needs a new trans.? Also is the 93' the same trans.?

I'm no expert, but that doesn't sound like a major problem...I can't be sure, though, as I have no idea what the real issue might be. So it just won't down shift once up to speed and trying to do something like pass?
But as far as compatability with a '93, that's a NO. Similar overall design, but they're bolted up to different engines and the '93s is hydraulically controlled while the newer '94+ LT1 cars have an electronically controlled trans.
What code? There isn't trans codes for a 4L60. 4L60E there is.
its pulling DTC 84, trans. 3-2 control solenoid circuit.
if i shift thru the gears manually on the column they all work fine.
Hmm, let me get some time tonight to go through the trans book.
In the mean time, go to http://impalassforum.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi go to the drivetrain forum, and look for Shane of CPT, give him a phone call. Very knowledgeable on the 4L60E. He'll know what is up.
