1984 k 5 blazer 5.7ltr auto w/ overdrive. What tranny do i have? Why will it go in reverse an not in drive?

Well, that might be tough, you can google it, or crawl around and look for the casting numbers on the ****** itself. It could be a 3 speed transmission, but the exact type probly is harder. I bet its a 700R.

147000K on my 2002 jetta TDI. I put it in reverse after a few tries. Car wouldn't move in reverse. Gave it a shot of gas and it lurched back. Had to put the brakes on so I wouldn't hit another car. No...

Take it to any other transmission shop, preferably one that can rebuild transmission. Most transmission shop would rather do a transmission swap since it's easier and they can make more money. A good transmission shop will only repair the worn part if it's more economical then swapping the whole transmission. It sounds like the transmission line pressures solenoid has gone bad and needs to be replaced, you can before hitting the gas to go in reverse, wait till the transmission line rises again and let the engine idle rev rise the line pressure slowly so you do not damage any other internal parts. Good luck and call around and have then to a transmission pressure line test, which would indicate if there is only a solenoid that needs to be replaced. Good luck friend

Tranny stuck in 1st gear until it warms

It is usually the electronics of the transmission. If you don't have any other symptoms, you may be alright. If you are getting slipping in between shifts, delayed engagement when put in reverse or drive, these are signs that the internals are going bad.

Transmission stuck in neutral (automatic) won't engage drive or reverse

first i would check the transmission oil, do this by starting the engine and leave it running, select all the gears (park, Reverse, neutral etc) then put it back to neutral, leave engine running then locate the transmission dipstick in the engine bay, remove and wipe the dipstick, replace then pull out again, if the oil is showing between the cold and hot marks then level is ok. I shoing lower or none, top up the oil level with automatic tansmission oil, keep rechecking the oil level as adding oil as to ensure it is not over full. will need to select all gears again before checking oil level again.
If the oil level is correct than quite likley a Transmission failure will require mechanic.

15 amp fuse for tail lights inst. pannel and o/drive blows

If it has reverse and second only it is in limp mode, something has gone wrong to cause it to do this. Sometimes you can disconnect battery and it will reset, but as soon as the problems happens again it will go back into that mode. Bad internal solenoid on transmission, slipping clutches, no power to transmission computer ie blown fuse, fauty tansmission computer. Try having some one pull the codes, if they can't it is a blown fuse or bad transmission computer. Hope this helps

Transmission is gone. Get a new vehicle, or get a rebuilt tranny and swap it out.
