Hoping someone can shed some light on this for me, I have a 2001 ETC w/ 80k miles on it, on the way to Chicago this weekend I went to pass a truck on the interstate and realized the car wasn't dropping down into passing gear, when I get on it the rpm's shoot up to 5000 and the transmission never down shifts.
I did some searching but am unsure as to whether or not the shift solenoid would cause the car not to go into passing gear??
Also their are no diagnostic codes to pull which makes this even harder to diagnose...
i had a problem like this but not in the caddy tranny
it was in my Blazer
it happens to be the 2-3 transmission solenoid that was bad
with that they where able to get in there and replace it with the transmission open
but im not sure if they can do that if that even is your issue with the tran's still in the car
but that is what was wrong with mine at the time
are you getting any codes in the on board system ?
have you thought about stoping by a trans shop
in the last 15 year i have been to sevral untill i found the one shop that i trust and does great work
but out of 5 Tran's Shops in 3 citys not ones has one ever asked for a dianostic fee
usualy they don't ask for them and will even say bring it in and we can test it out for free and let you know what it is
something about trans shops they will diagnose a problem for free when a Mechanic will ask for there regular hourly rate or a set rate to check a problem
but have never had this at the tran's shop i go to or any of them
maybe you can find a shop and take it out figure it out
