Silverado 3500

  • miles


My truck at speeds around 35mph while letting off the accelerator it would jump out of gear. So then, in 2012, I had the transfer case actuator motor replaced and it fixed the problem. Then just yesterday (Oct. 31, 2014) I had cruise control set at 70mph and when it would coast or try to slow itself down to maintain its speed, I would here a clunking noise and it would jerk. When I let off the cruise control and would let it roll to a stop it would pop out of gear! I made it back to town and even at slower speeds it would jump out of gear to the point where I had to put it in 4WD high to be able to move. I spoke with a mechanic at the local dealership and he said they have a lot of problems with them like mine which is why I think there needs to be some attention brought to them.
