Why don't my car grab gear right?

My escalade all of a sudden stopped getting the gears right. When I have it on overdrive it feels like it's being forced and I also have to give it more gas just to get it rolling. It wouldn't even make it up my driveway if I don't shift it to low 1 gear. When I give it gas I also hear like a humming sound from the engine. Does anyone know what this might be?

How many miles does it have on it? When was the last time you changed the transmission fluid? Not a flush, those are sketchy, but just a fluid change? It sounds like the tranny is going out.


It has 120,000 miles and the trans fluid was changed not to long ago. I was also thinking it might the transmission starting to go out. It's has 4x4 as well with the transfer case. Also I forgot to add that my "check gauges" light will come on and when that happens my RPM gauge along with my speedometer stop working. Then the little orange light where it shows what gear your on also disappears that's when it starts to run like #&&$. But every once in a while the gauges will work an orange light works, the truck drives normal without forcing to much on the gas, it's confusing. It sorta feels like I'm driving it on 4 wheel gear buy it's not. Also thank you very much for your comments and for trying to help out. Appreciate it very much.

I think you are due for a good look at this by your local garage. The thing with your "check gauges light" it should point to where the problem may be. Since I am not sure where you are located, it probably won't help you anything if I tell you that Autozone does the error code analysis as well. At least it would give you a better idea of what is going on. It could be something as simple as a sensor to something as bad as a transmission rebuilt. It does sound like it has some pressure issues within the tranny. Sorry I can not be of more help but hope you get it figured out.

I have a 2000 Cadillac escalade SUV that recently the check gauges & check engine light turned on and now the SPEEDOMETER & RPM gauges go all the way down to zero and dont work, also the little orange light to let tocar hesitates to take off like I have to give it more gas just to start moving and going up a driveway it will not make it unless I shift to 2nd gear. I'm real *&@!@% off because I just paid $600 bucks to get my tranny rebuilt thinking it would solve the problem but it's still the same #&&&!! WOULD ANYONE HAVE AN IDEA ON WHAT WOULD BE CAUSING THIS?? Now I know it's not the freakin transmission so it would have to be electrical. Any help would be deeply appreciated.
