A transmission system is the mainstay of a car's performance. It is the part which has to endure the maximum stress, thereby causing the highest levels of wear and tear.

2000 Chevy Silverado Transmission Rebuild
Rebuilding a transmission is a major technical overhaul of a vehicle's transmission system. A transmission system is comprised of a series of interlinked mechanical components that wear down over a period. Transmission rebuilding involves replacing worn out parts only and not replacing the entire transmission system. Important steps of transmission rebuilding are removal and inspection of a car's transmission followed by replacement or refurbishment of any damaged or worn out car part.

A transmission rebuild is a very convenient and popular option for those who want to minimize the money spent on replacing a vehicle's worn-out or damaged transmission with new ones. It is also preferred by people who are following a stricter budget or have other things at priority.

Preventative transmission maintenance, such as transmission fluid flushes and filter change, can help prevent the need for a transmission rebuild. But as parts become worn and damaged, sometimes there is no other option. Transmission fluid flushes and filter changes are an important key to keeping your transmission working properly.

What causes 2000 Chevy Silverado Transmission Problems:

Most of transmission problems in any vehicle start from overheating. Under heavy load, such as towing a heavy trailer, rocking the vehicle from the snow, having continuous stop and go traffic in hot weather, racing, etc. the transmission overheats. At higher temperatures the transmission fluid burns, losing its lubricating qualities and becomes oxidized leaving deposits all over inside the transmission. Exposed to the heat the rubber seals and gaskets inside the transmission become hardened causing leaks. The metal parts warp and lose their strength. All this, sooner or later, results in transmission failure.

However, overheating is not the only reason - sometimes transmission breaks down because of poor design or due to lack of maintenance.
Few other reasons: harsh driving, too low or too high transmission fluid level or wrong transmission fluid type.

If you experience any of the problems above with your 2000 Chevy Silverado transmission, or others such as leaks, noises, problems with shifting, etc. Don't wait until the problem will become worse, or your truck will finally stop somewhere on a highway. Automatic transmission problems never disappear by themselves.

I have a 1992 chevy silverado that the reverse and overdrive went out about 5 years ago.I still drove it(Had to park on hills).I started driving it about 100 miles a day back and forth to work and about the fifth day it went into overdrive so i stopped and put into reverse and it worked also.A couple days later it wouldnt hardly shift out of first.What would cause it to start working suddenly then not again?

I just rebuilt A 4L60E in A 2000 
Silverado. Every thing Looked great 
with the right tolerances. Now that it is in the truch, It has Reverse and Shifts great fron 1st to 2nd but will not shift to 3rd or 4th. Could this be an electrical 
problem or what?? If so how do I check it out.

My son has a 2000 Chevy truck with a 4.3 and the transmission is stuck in first gear. The computer shows the code for the shift solenoid. Do you think changing that will solve the problem? thanks

my grandson's 1999 chev.1500 4x4 just had trasmission rebuilt, sometimes shifts fine, then sometimes will not shift into overdrive of high. You can stop and restart the truck and most times it will shift fine, could this be a sensor?
