Why would a 1999 Suburban hesitate in reverse but work fine in drive?

More info would be most helpful. Assuming this SUV has a automatic transmission most Chevys of this model have a computer that operates the shifting as well as the engine components. Most any transmission shop can diagnose trans problems from under the hood some charge a small fee. , EzForJesus

I was told by my mechanic that the transmission hesitating after putting it in drive after reversing is a sign of the transmisison dying. ---------- Check transmission fluid. When the fluid is low there is not enough in the torque converter, so when you go to reverse or drive you have to rev the engine before it moves to compensate for less fluid in the torque converter.

You would need a drive shaft from a suburban

Because reverse is a lower ratio gear than drive and puts less load on the engine.

Since it takes more preasure to apply the reverse band, the pump probably has low preasure caused by worn bushings requiring a rebuild.
