2002 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4dr Extended Cab LS 4WD LB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
Mine is equipped with the Z71 option.
Very annoying hesitation while in slow
driving (heavy traffic)when shifting
from 1st to 2nd gear followed by a hard
shudder, then it shifts. Been to the
dealer 6 times, tried many things,
including replacing the transmission,
to no relief.
When factory representative drove it,
he decided that since this problem is
in other vehicles there was nothing he
could do about it(New standard?).
Shifting from 2nd to 3rd gear the same
happens but to a lesser degree.
Fix the hesitation/shudder problem then
it will be quite enjoyable.
