2008 Silverado 1500 hard shift

Asked by Jul 18, 2019 at 02:07 AM about the 2008 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2008 Chevy Silverado 1500 with the 4l60e
trans with the 5.3L engine 2wd. The truck has 169k
miles on it and has always been normal. Now one
random day the transmission started shifting hard
and wants to ride 1st gear out until you get up into
a high rpm it does a harsh shift to second and all
the other gears are very jerky on shifting but
nothing is as bad as the 1-2 shift (note I know I
have a bad 1-2 shift solenoid but I don’t think this
is the problem now) My cluster is also acting up
and sometimes won’t read my speed at all other
times it will fall down and then come back up to
my speed. I changed the speed output sensor near
the rear of the transmission and I have already
changed the fluid, filter and gasket on the
transmission. What could be causing all of this?
