Question about 1999 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup

Chev Transmission vent pipe clogged

My 99 Chev s-10 pickup truck 4x4 ( 4.3 engine) transmisiion vent pipe is clogged.
Is this expensive to fix? Brought to a trans. shop and they couldnt find the problem.
When I use the truck for a while, and you take out the trans. dipstick, fluid will squirt all over the place.
VIP cannot fix it.
The truck has 133K. Runs fine, and I am wondering if how expensive it is to fix, and has there been internal damage done, because this has been doing it for about a year.
Thanks for your help

Sounds like an internal problem with the valve body, take it to reputable tranny shop, if you can afford it take to a GM dealer.

I think its the transmission.

Do you have a check engine light showing in the dash? If it was an ignition problem you would have a CEL on.

I have a 1988 Jaguar XJ6, when being drove it will not go over 25 mph and the rpms go up to an over 3000. I have checked my exhaust system and it is not clogged up. If the transmission has to be replaced...

I don't know where you are, but here in Aust. a lot of people swap the entire engine/trans for a Ford or Chev v8 and transmission. Fixing the Jag stuff is just too expensive.

I would check the trans fluid level and overall transmission condition first though.

Hi, I'm assuming you have the AOD transmission. If the information I provide doesn't match with what you see, please get back to me with engine size and transmission, info, if possible. Below is a picture of the sensor and also the location on the transmission. Thanks for using FixYa.

2005 Chevy Suburban 5.3L . getting P0488 code / Evaporative Emission Control System vent Control circuit shorted. What does that mean? How do I fix it?

i work at GM and we replace the vent vavles alot,along with evap canister and filter. but mostly due to dirt and mud sucking up into the filter .the filter is located left side of transmission by cross member,unless its been relocated already.evap canister is located at the front of gas tank or rear of it ,vent vavle is close to it .it is connected to evap canister with a tube or pipe witch ever you would like to call it. check evap for dirt or dust could be clogged.

White smoke from tail pipe, Changed rings and head gasket still there.

White smoke or steam? If it's smoke, I bet you have an automatic transmission, trans fluid makes white smoke. There is a vacuum line from the trans to engine somewhere, there is probably a diaphragm that's broken. call your local trans shop it shouldn't be a huge expense to fix.
please leave a fixya rating if I'm correct
