SOURCE: 1998 Chevy S10 pickup backup lights don't work

Yes it screws in on right side of tramission and you will need a 7/8 inch deep socket to remove it. You may be able to clean the old one once it is removed. There is a little ball thatgets dirty and may you can get by with cleaning it. Good Luck. Ed

1998 camry wont shift from low

This can have several causes. You could try 2 transmission fluid changes first to see if the fault was a bit of dirt somewhere.
Then, is your O/D light blinking? This will indicate the ECM has stored a code indicating what the trouble area is. If there is no O/D light with the O/D switch in or out both, the globe has failed, and it first needs to be replaced so you can read the trouble code. For that your instrument cluster needs to be removed, not a difficult job. See here p111

Note you only need to do Steps 19, 20, 23
The transmission fault main suspects would be
- vehicle speed sensor fault. The ECM doesn't know what speed you are doing
- 1 to 2 shift valve fault. Possibly dirt.
- less likely is a fault with the shift solenoids. The fault code should tell you about that.

My 98 has 1st and 2nd starts out in drive then nothing have to put it in 2nd to go

could be the shift solenoids in the transmission. Try pulling codes even if light is not on. Sometimes it will set a shift solenoid code if that is the problem. Very common in chevys. Good luck

Hard Shift 1998 Chevy 1500

I need to know the codes so I can properly diagnois your problem. Here are a few tips though. Your electronics inside the transmission may be going out. You should start by changing the fluid and the filter. Let me know if there is a lot of metal or fiber shavings in the pan. Put new fluid in and clear your codes. See how it shifts and then let me know what is going on with it. Hope this helps.
