Re: 1998 chevy blazer 4.3 auto
Did you over fill it? if you did its got to go someware, its always better to run it a little under full than a little over. When the oil gets hot it expands and if there is to much it will blow it out.

Check your transmission fluid level. [I rebuilt a C-4 Ford in a college class. Had a big leak. After I put 9 more quarts of trans fluid in it worked. ] 2 quarts low will make it fail. Be sure and use the correct fluid for your brand and year of car. Big Chain advertised Trans rebuild shops are often a scam. They take apart your trans then want thousands to put it back together. The Federal Trade Commission nailed them for this years ago. Find a local shop recommended by several GOOD mechanics. Dealers are usually good but expensive. Most trans repairs can be done without removing the trans. A good shop can test the trans while mounted in the car. Can hook up test hoses and see what is happening. This was true in 1980s when I took the class. Might have electronic tests now. If it is an older trans the fluid is thick. Putting in new thin fluid will make it worse.
Auto Trans are hydraulic "brain surgery" If you can find a guaranteed rebuilt trans that's a good route. Putting it in takes a lot of skill and a lift. My neighbor tried it in his driveway, it failed and after 2 months took it to a shop. Damaged the pump $$$
[I drive a stick shift with crank up windows. It has 4 / 60 Air Conditioning 4 windows open 60 Miles per hour !!! :) Good Luck
Answer # 4 is a good place to start if that diagram is not on the bottom of your Hood go to auto zone and get a hanse repair manual for your truck they are not expensive what is it you are looking for?
If it had lots of miles on the trans fluid befor you changed it that fluids additives broke down long ago and wore out most of the fiber material in your trans,,its a problem with alot of gm makes ,unfortunatly you now need to rebuild at least a portion of the trans
It is full of fluid? Is the fuild dirty ( brown or black)? It sounds like you have major problems. Even if you lose electrical power to the trans you should still have 2nd. If the fuse for the trans blows it will go into the limp home mode where you will have 2nd & reverse. Good Luck!
it sounds as if you need to replace the transmission...i don't really thing that a flush or service will help at this point...if trans is slippin already, locate a transmission from your local auto wreckers and replace it...or go new..
