1. Oil coming from the ext. vent means Overfill fluid transmission or valve body problem (need to open the transmission to overhaul it) but usually overfill.
2. Do you have any transmission faulty code
3. If you pull a trailer, heavy load there is a function in PCM (powertrain control Module) that raise the pressure to compensate the slip at clutch pressure and if you unhook the trailer and go on the highway before the PCM learn it, it will shift hard. What GM call the "shift adapt". You probably have a 4L80E for transmission or the 4L60E depends on the truck's options.
hope it helps.

SOURCE: 97 GMC Z71 4X4 Not Locking in

If it's a shift - on - the - fly 4wd, then call your local Chevy truck dealer. There was a recall on the Electronic 4wd on these trucks. (common problem). Try this just for the heck of it. With the truck stopped, put in 4hi/lo, then put it in reverse. Back up slightly, (about 5ft or so) and then put it in drive (or first in a manual trans) and go forward. Did it lock in? If it locks in but won't unlock, try backing up to unlock. Hope this helps.

My 1996 GMC Yukon 4x4 transmission will only drive in 1st and 2nd


It will take off from a stop in overdrive but as soon as it shifts into 3rd at about 30 miles per hour it jumps into neutral? If yes, you have a burnt 3/4 clutch. The transmission will need rebulit. Cost of about 1600 dollars.

Hard shifting


U may have a dirty valve body passage, have u changed the trans fluid and filter in the last 60,000 miles,. if no do and use the new GM Dexron VI trans fluid, it has greatly improved shift characteristic's and has the best detergent property out there to keep the trans clean. I have personnel experience with this fluid in my 96, I was amazed.

Transmission won't shift properly (2 wd ) speedo does not work


Its weird but I had a fuse blow out awhile back that is the same fuse that works the cab lights when you open the doors. When this fuse went out it also made it shift odd and hard when it did shift. Since it is only intermittent in your case, It may just be a weak fuse.
