One problem associated with automatic transmission torque converter has been reported for the 2004 Chevrolet Suburban.
Automatic Transmission Torque Converter problem #1
The vehicle involved was a 2004 Chevrolet Suburban 1500. Transmission started slipping causing a "shudder" around 55 mph or lower if I am hauling something. We took in to dealer who said the torque converter clutch is bad and they can replace it or put in a whole new transmission at a cost to us of $3,300. After searching online I found TSB #050730017 which outlines this known problem. I have several friends who have had this same problem. If this many people are having this problem and it is know by gm I feel it should be handled by them. The technician that handled our repair said that the tranny fluid should be changed every 25-30k miles since we live in a mountainous area and occasionally pull a small horse trailer. The manual states that it should be changed every 50k miles with no reference to terrain. I feel that gm should cover the cost of this repair since they know about the problem and have done nothing to notify owners of the issue or how to correct it. This problem occurred on 03/24/09.
