    What was the trans. doing before you serviced it?

  • Richard Scordino May 11, 2010

    Sounds like a converter or low fluid problem. You did not remove the trans to do a filter change... is it the same unit or a used one. What seal was replaced?

Can automatic transmission with no reverse, 2nd or 4th gear be fixed without rebuild?

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 $$$

89-98 chevy blazer

It's not worth doing all that conversion, buy the time you spend the time and money to convert the 89 4.3 to work on the 98 blazer, it would be cheaper to install a 98 vortec rebuild. The 89 4.3 have a TBI fuel injection system and the ecm on the 98 will not work and the bad news is that the ecm on the 98 also controls the transmission shift points and the 89 will not, so even if you swap the ecm to have the 89 4.3 engine work. the transmission will not shift. Sorry for the bad news but it would be cheaper to replace the 98 engine with the years of 1996 to 2001. Good luck and hope this helps.

I need instructions on how to change the transmission fluid & filter on a 1995 Olds Cutlass Supreme. I've done just about everything working on cars (pre '90's) except automatic transmissions.

for starters, if trans has not been regularly serviced , many problems will occur if vehicle has lots of miles on it and a service job is done. the new fluid has new detergents and better viscosity and causes metal / clutch particles to break free inside trans and stop filter up or stick valves in valve body. ( judgment call on owners part) , if lots miles and never serviced i would leave alone and just keep fluid topped off .
to service the transmission, first go to parts house and tell them the yr,model,make of vehicle. put vehicle on lift or jacks and there will be a large flat pan on the trans., pull all the ten mm bolts out , one left last to slowly let pan finish draining slowwly. make sure the vehicle hasnt been started or driven for a very short time as the fluid would then be hot and burn you. once the pan is off the trans. , there will be a large filter , it has a large rubber/steel groumet/seal that it pushes into. A flat head screwdriver can be put next to the neck of the filter and use the transmission case as a pry point to make the filter pop out of the filter seal. once this is done , the old seal for the filter needs to be removed. use the flat head screwdriver again and it will pop out of the hole its it, just dont get to ruff with it. put the tip into the seal neck and use the shaft of the screwdriver as leverage against the hole the fitler pushes into. next put a little lube of any kind on new seal on filter and with seal on filter push the filter into the hole until seated fully. next clean pan/and magnet inside pan thouroughly , wipe off the pan rail of trans case very well , leaving oil there will let pan gasket tear easy. causing leak. let oil drip awile before trying to put pan gasket and pan back on . i use break cleaner at auto parts alot to do all the cleaning. make shure bolt holes on pan are not domed from pan bolts over tightened previously. a ball pean hammers smaller end can be put ontop of bolt hole using another hammer to flatten raised bolt hole so that pan rail where gasket fits is flat. put 10mm bolt back using torque wrench at 110-140 inch pounds or till tight with ratchet and socket. dont overtighten , watch gasket between pan and trans case as you tighten bolts. if over tightening bolts, the gasket will squish out and cause a leak. let car down and put 4 quarts fluid it (dexron 3 fluid is ok) . after the 4 , start engine and with foot on brake , shift rev. to fwd a couple times and reckeck fluid till full.

95 Blazer trans noise

Its best to just drive it until it quits, you got yourself an exceptional blazer, start messen with trans. now i think would be a mistake, take the mechanics advise, drive it, and enjoy it for as long as you can. Consider yourself luckey most people don't get half that milage before the trans. has to be replaced or rebuilt.

1984 s10 2.8 manual trans. flywheel causes engine to vibrate

no should be same engine. check your engine mounts and tranny mount. how bad a vibration? sometimes after installing engine the trans gets shifted around and if mount was worn it will allow it to hit crossmeber and vibrate.

1995 S10 BLAZER 4X4 AUTOMATIC Transmission Burbs

It's possible that your transmission and filter has built-up a lot of gunk and deposits and is working overtime to get fluid to circulate through the transmission. The only other thing that can normally be checked without taking the vehicle to a transmission expert is the fluid level. However, I can tell you that I own a 2002 Blazer with a 4.3 L Vortec, and Blazers have always been notorious for having the transmissions go out on them if they are not checked and flushed on a routine basis (I suggest checking and/or flushing every 10-15K miles.). Hopefully this will help to shed some light on your problem. Have a great day!
