SOURCE: 1993 GMC 1500 4x4 poor shifting

this may be due to a poor connection at the vehicle speed sensor on the transmission, pull the connector off the sensor and clean it with contact cleaner, if the problem persists replace the speed sensor. there are 2 diff ones here is a picture of the most common one for an auto trans.3deea43.jpg

SOURCE: wont shift back from 4x4 low, to 2x2

I also have a 2002 Envoy. Shifting to and from 4wh and 4wa can be done on the fly but shifting to 4wL has to be done stoped and while in neutral. Try that. Otherwise I'm afraid its a new computer for you. Its located under the left rear seat and you need a loan for one.

Sounds like your brake interlock is not working. You can manually override it. Check your owners manual, but there should be a small square around the trim around the shifter. Pry up the square and there is a release mechanism to manually release the solenoid. It should be covered in your owners manual how to override it.
I think to replace it you need to take apart the shifter trim.

2003 gmc envoy starts shifts into drive but wont move not transmission

If you're sure it's shifting into drive or lower gears and it's not moving, there can only be 2 other options #1 ujoints in drive shaft are broken and not letting the driveshaft turn or #2 the rear differential (rear end) is shot. Have someone look under the truck while you have the truck in gear and see if the driveshaft is turning...REMEMBER>>>DO NOT LAY UNDER THE TRUCK< STAY CLEAR OF WHEELS....don't want to get injured.

Put gmc envoy in reverse and went to put in drive and dash says in drive but won't go into any gear

Check fluid level first. After that, many things inside the transmission could be the problem for no forward gear. Try manually shifting it to first or low. Could be the cable popped off the shifter arm on the transmission.

I have a GMC 2004 Envoy XL and yesterday put my care in park ran inside to grab something came out and got in the car put the car in R and the car didnt shift so I put it in P and car shut off. Tried to...

If that is a column shift most likely the cable has broken or you have a transmission linkage problem. I usually see this problem with a console shift unit and the solution is to turn the collar on the steering column by hand to get it in gear properly. You have to count the positions. look under the dash for a cable that connects to the shift arm and leads to the firewall or floor of the vehicle. If there are no cables check the area where the steering column goes through the firewall on the engine side and check to make sure that all the linkage is properly connected.
