Question about 1997 Chevrolet Blazer

1997 Chevy blazer not shifting

We removed the pump from the old transmission and replaced it with the one that was broke from the second transmission the we put in. Everything was installed and the truck is now running. The truck will not shift into overdrive and won't shift into first gear. Reverse, second and third gear shift fine. Just wondering if you could make any suggestions as to what is wrong with it now.

This sounds like a wiring issue, check and make sure the transmission connector is ok, no broken locks on hard shell or bent pins.

Whats wrong with my transmission

Two things come to mind. There are many though. First, did you put the bolts in for the torque converter? Even the best of us, forget some times. Second is a bad pump. It's not hard to break a pump either. If the converter is not set in place and you have to pull the transmission to the engine with the bolts. The pump just broke.
But again, there are many things inside the transmission that was already bad/broke and will not engage.

Transmission shop damaged axle during replacement. Wants me to pay half. Thoughts?

They should pay for the parts (they broke it). You should pay for the labor. I think that is fair. You would have had to pay for the labor anyway to remove and replace the part. Good luck!

I cannot get my transmission back in.

Check the pilot end of the spline shaft to make sure it did not get damaged, check the depth on the half shaft that spline fits in, look for index guides on both housings, also hope that you did not preload the crank shaft bearings if the issue is with the spline or the half shaft.

Series 3 1997 2.8 i have a problem with water leak but not visible it feels like water is not going round the system where is the water pump

The hardest leak to see is the weep hole on the bottom of the water pump. You won't know for sure that it is leaking out the weep hole until the fan is off, the serpentine belt is off, and the pulley is off so you can see the bottom of the water pump.
The water pump is in the front of the engine block, directly behind the fan.
A 1997 328 is due for virtually every component in the cooling system unless you know for a fact that the component has been recently replaced. For example, you must be on at least your second radiator, so if the current radiator is less than 5 years old, it probably has a few more years in it. However, on a '97, you should be on your second overflow reservoir, your second set of hoses (and that means ALL the hoses, including the tough to reach ones behind the engine and under the intake manifold), your second thermostat and housing, your second water pump, and your second radiator.
Not part of the cooling system, but if you have not replaced the rubber boot on the throttle body, you might as well order one of those while you are at it because I promise you it is cracked.
I own two '97 328s, one with 175k miles and one with 275k miles, and they both have had everything in the cooling system replaced at least once.
If you want to do this yourself, you will have to buy or make a tool to hold the pulley still while you loosen the fan. The fan nut is left-handed thread. Oh yes, if it has not been replaced, you are probably due for a fan clutch as well.
If you have an automatic transmission, I find it easier to leave the transmission cooler in the car when I pull the radiator, but be careful not to inadvertently pull the transmission lines out of it or you will dump transmission fluid all over the floor. Refilling this transmission and getting the level correct is a hassle.

I have a 1983 FORD F-250 equiped with a broken adapter plate.

Your best chance of finding the adapter is at a junkyard (an older one that may have something buried way in the back they haven't gotten around to scrapping) If you can locate a good welding shop, you may be able to have it repaired in-car. without taking it apart. Removal is a big job, especially when on the ground, as transmission needs to be removed to do that.
There are no electronic controls on the trans, so aside from unbolting everything and the actual removal, there isn't much to it. Most important is putting the trans back up without bending or breaking anything. on automatics you need to get the converter installed properly in the trans pump and use a strap or something to keep it from sliding forward while installing.

How do you get to the water pump in a 1999 chevy cavalier

Make sure you don't have delco loc 2 or theftloc audio system before disconnecting the battery. You should be able to do this by contacting your local dealer and they run the vin and tell you.

Before you put in the new pump you need to put grease on the splines.

battery disconnected

drain coolant

take out the electric fan

take off the serpintine belt

use a large screwdrive or equivlent to hold the pump pulley and loosen all of the bolts holding the pulley on the pump.

After all are loosened then remove from the pulley and remove the pulley.

Take out the four bolts holding the pump to the engine block.

get a wood dowl or equilent and a hammer and give the old pump a few taps to break away the old seal.

Once the seals broke loose take the old pump out.

then clean up the block,

clean everything with brake parts cleaner

put RTV sealant on both sides of the new gasket and put it on the new pump.

try not to let the gasket move around so the bead isnt messed up to bad.

put the pump in and put all four bolts in finger tight

Torque on pump mounting bolts is 18 ft/lbs

Torque on pulley bolts is 18 ft/ lbs

then the rest is just reverse of removal

97 transmission pump

Just remove the front pump bolts, you will need new O ring seals, DON'T USE THE OLD ONES OVER, the pump will be hard to remove, but it will come out, have the trans pointed up or all the fluid will gush out on the floor, when you install the new O rings use good old Vasoline petroleum jelly ( heap generic works fine also) to lube the O rings, be very careful putting the pump back in or you will tear the new O ring seal and all you did will be for nothing, really lay the Vasoline on there, the more the merrier!
