Trans Won't Go Forward But will Reverse
When I put the transmission it into Reverse it drives normally, but when I shift it into Drive and I press
on the accelerator, the engine idles faster but the car has a harder time driving and starts
moving slowly and then picks up speed. While I keep my foot on the gas and I switch from Drive to 3, I
feel slightly more power, and when I move the selector gear from 3 to 2 or 1, the car starts moving

GMC Trans Shutters
Transmission shudders going from reverse to drive when cold. After it warms up some it doesn't
do it as bad if at all. It has started to slip in reverse and forward gears, usually at slower speeds,
around corners or starting uphill. It was starting to act up prior to a filter and fluid change about
3,000 miles ago.
I have a 2003 Olds Silhouette van, 3.4 engine.
When starting out in the morning sometimes transmission don't want to shift from second to 3rd.
Sometimes its like someone hit the shifter into neutral. Every once in a while it clunks when it
shifts. After transmission oil heats up problem seems to disappear. Does this seem like a filter or
major problems. Oil level is ok, and oil does not smell burnt or discolored. Thank you.

This sounds like a common problem on that year Oldsmobile. There is a service bulletin for this
problem. Chips or debris plugging the bleed orifice of the 2-3 shift solenoid. This will cause the
transmission to stay in 2nd gear when 3rd gear is commanded and return to 1st gear when 4th
gear is commanded.

A 2-3 shift valve (368) or 2-3 shuttle valve (369) that is stuck, restricted and/or hung-up in its
bore. This condition may also be an indication of a damaged 2-4 band or 3-4 clutches. This
clutch damage may generate debris causing the 2-3 shift valve line-up to stick in the valve body
bore and set DTC P0757. You are going to have to have a transmission Tech look at it and do
some preliminary diagnosis to see if this is your problem.
1999 Oldsmobile Silhouette 3.1L V6.
SES codes p1811.
Van is slipping when shifting from 1st to 2nd gear. O.K. After warm sup. I took it to a Cottman
transmission dealer and the code was p1811. They said they would have to do a software
rebuild-clutches and whatever else. Will tis take care of the problem? NO check engine lite
came on ever.

Yes, most likely the clutch plate material has come apart on the 2nd clutch assembly. P1811 is
component slipping. Transmission would have to come out and disassembled.
