My reverse went out on my 2005 GMC Serra 1500 truck but, have drive with no issues?

Asked by Jan 25, 2017 at 11:08 AM about the 2005 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE 4WD Crew Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My truck was working perfectly fine last night and this morning on my way to
work, I noticed while trying to reverse it was making whining noises and didn't
have much power but, putting the truck into drive, it works fine and no noise at
all. I barely have any power when in reverse, what can be causing this issue
all of a sudden?

I believe revers has gone out, take it to a trany shop for proper diagnosis.

I was informed it does not always have to be a trany replacement and could be some sort of link gear to the reverse trany that went or a cable line, does that make sense? I will def have a shop take a better look at it. Just over the phone from one shop, without even diagnosis they are saying my whole trany needs to be replace and going to cost me around $2,500.00....insane and not where I plan to take my vehicle if they are just guessing and assuming off the bat that that's the issue.

In the area that I live in it would be $1800 for a trany rebuild, taking it out and re-installing it. But in those years trany there is a known issue with them, and I think you'll find that it is going to need rebuilding.
