Transmission problem WHen I put my blazer into drive it hesitates and then slambs into gear. I have checked my transmission fluid and everything and it is fine and 3 years ago when I got the car they said that they rebuilt the transmission, but now it just starting acting up. But when I drive it down the road it shifts fine. what could this be, do I need to get the transmission flushed?

Flush will help. When refiling fluid put in a repair product. Valve is sticking.

Car out of cruise control flutters or runs rough from 45 mph to 55 mph and once over 55 mph runs smooth. I notice from 45 to 55 the rpm guage moves with flutter or rough running engine. when i put in cruise control it smooths out.

Transmission lost all gears


check the level of the coolant as milky transmission oil is water in the oil ( busted oil cooler in the radiator.) or water in the replacement transmission.

My '05 altima hesitates when i shift from park to drive then jerks into gear. once driving changes gears smoothly, no jerking, no slipping, no hesitation.


Read the owners manual for checking the Transmission Fluid. Usually it involves putting the car in Neutral and checking the fluid. If it is low, that could be the problem. If it is not, it may be a problem with the gears. I would take it to a shop to try to diagnose the issue.

Well i put a transmission in my blazer. at frist it was hard to shift in to drive or any gear then we got it to work as soon as we put gas in and left the store it would not shift in to gears when in drive


Did you get enough fluid in it? It can take several quarts and some drive test/checking fluid level to fill torque converter up. There is also a shift modulator (electronic I think) on those could cause that, or you got a bad transmission.

Was driving on freeway, everything was OK. RPMS


Unfortunately, yes. The transmission went out. What you may be able to do is check the transmission fluid level. If it is extremely low, it will not allow the gears to slip into the proper position to drive. However, if this problem is because of not having enough transmission fluid and your gears or the automatic clutch are damaged, you may end end up having to have costly repairs. What happened was either the gears in the transmission seized up, or the fluid level got so low that they will not build up enough pressure to slide the gears to drive position.

1997 chevy blazer 4*4 will not go into reverse , drives and shifts sluggish in forward gears . parked overnight went to back up the next morning and vehicle was like neutral in reverse. fluid level is ok .


You may have a bad revers solenoid. Check the fuse and look for any of the fuse to be bad like the transmission fuse. Best thing to do is get the blazer scanned at Auto Zone free of charge for any DTC codes that may be affecting your transmission's performance. Try this, place the ignition to the run position and pull the ECM(BATT) fuse out for 30 seconds and then place it back in. Start the Blazer, it may stall but let it. Just start it again the ECM is just relearning the engine and transmission, let it idle for 1 min and then go for a test drive. This should reset everything in the truck's ECM like the day it was first started and any DTC code will be new and active. Do not add any additives like lucas transmission fluid repair, that will just make it worst. Any additive that may the transmission thicker will make the fluid retention more making the shift solenoid stick causing shift conflicts. Good luck and keep me posted. No revers is ether a bad solenoid, bad PCM signal, or broken sun gear.

Transmission hesitates shifting into second and perhaps third gear when driving slow. When acceleration is positive transmission shifts smoothly. Reference "99 Mercury Transmission" as Subject when


Several things could be causing your problem:
  1. Auto transmission fluid is low
  2. Auto transmission fluid needs changing; this is an area that gets neglected by a lot of people;check the fluid and if its brown or gives off a burning smell, it needs changing. Very old transmission fluid will cause slipping in the transmission; if this is the case, it should be changed along with the filter
Hope you find that this answers your question. Best of luck.
Greg

p.s. If you have the fluid changed, make sure it's done from the tranmission pan, not through the filler tube; siphoning through the filler tube can be hazardous to the transmission, especially cars with a lot of miles

Blazer transmission not shifting properly beetween 1 and 2


Your going to have to get the ECM scanned, Auto Zone scan's for free and most garage now will scan for $10.00 to $15.00 since they all have the scanners now and need the business.
You could have a Vehicle Velocity Sensor (V V S)  going bad or the wire harness it self. The V.V.S tells the ECM how fast the drive shaft is rotating and calculate's what gear it should be in relative with the engine speed and throttle position, and transmission fluid pressure.
Regardless you need the Blazer scanned to pin point why your transmission is shifting the way it is. Could be as simple as time for transmission oil and filter change for $125.00 or a loose wire harness.
Check your transmission fluid and try not to run the blazer to hard, to replace the transmission start at $1,900.00 for a rebuilt.
Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted
