Question about 2001 Chevrolet S-10
Tranny slipped this morning around a sharp bend . slowly got it to parking lot. Turned off motor , when I restarted the motor 5 minutes later I had no gears at all not even reverse. I let the truck idle for 30 seconds and very slowly all my gears came back but it was very weak when I drove it home. I checked the ATF level and it looks dirty but the level looks good. When I restarted the truck this afternoon it barely went into gear, But after I let the motor warm up the gears seem to have responded a lot nicer almost making me think it was drivable again. Through a little research it was said that it could be that i need to replace the shift kit in the tranny. Does this sound plausible.
Sounds like a case for the transmission shop. The slipping may be due to low hydrolic pressure- did it take long for the gear to engage when u put it in gear after letting it cool? Im interested in more info on when the problem occurs, but from what it sounds like u need a rebuild done on that trans unless u misread the dipstick when u checked the fliud. make sure the truck is running and has been driven to warm up the trans for an accurate reading b4 checking the fluid level. You can also warm up the trans by letting it sit in drive with the parking brake set for a few minutes.
