Question about 1998 Chevrolet Blazer
I just had the trans on my 98 Blazer rebuilt, but after driving it the next day realized that I was pressing on the accelator but the car did not have a pick-up in speed even thuogh the rpm seemed to be in line with upshifting and downshifting. so, I ttok it back to the trans shop and they discovered that the rear wheel was locked when they had it hoisted and tried to move the wheek by hand. So, then I took it to the break shop and they found out that I had a bad caliper and replaced it. later, it seemed to made the problem go away, for a day or two of driving but again the problem reapeared where you find yourself very concious of having to press on the accelator to get the car to move. So, aagain I took it back to the brak shop and they discovered that the caliper with the hose on the other rear wheel drum were bad and I got them replaced. Again, it seemed to be ok a day or two and again, teh car is being very lazy in its acceleration where I can't really get it to go past 65 mph and also noticing that the I’ve used more than a ¼ of my fuel in the 1 day of driving which is very unusual and obvious to take a notice of considering my usual commute. I have had this car for over nine years now with 130 K miles and it easy to notice it’s performance declining and am tired of taking it back and forth between the trans and break shop. Please help!!
This is a perplexing problem. I would say that you have low amount of fluid in your torque converter that's why you are not getting your accelaration. I would also check your fuel and air filter as well. Autozone runs free diagnostics and I know in this economy saving a few dollars is a must! It could be a crimped vacum line as well becuase putting a transmission in is a very complicated process and this may have happened. I would also check your transmission fluid level becuase this will cause misallocated shifting as well. I wish you the best of luck!
