Check fluid level first and top off and check for leaks may not need changed or flushed if just low

94 Chevy s10 blazer tahoe lt. Automatic transmission. The speedometer quits at 50 miles an hour. Then that night gears won't shift. Fluid is black. The truck was given to me. Is the transmission done? Or...


The speedo problem is probably the VSS. The shifting problem could also be a VSS problem, but the black trans fluid is not good either.
I don't recommend changing fluid after 125,000 miles if it has never been changed since new, but in your case you may not have much to loose if you do.

Got a 97 chevy cavalier. when i pul it into drive it goes just wont shift out of first gear. changed fluid and filter


you need to see if you have vss sensor at the computer. you can read this at the ecm with a scanner that reads live data. you should have a code in the computer you might be able to retrieve it at a part store like auto zone for free.

It is not anything with the transmission itself. it is your throttle position sensor, sometimes after driving at a steady speed and then coasting it loses its mind a little. You get the trac light and then it wont shift properly unless you shut the car off and restart it then everything is ok because the computer resets. It is fairly easy to replace.

After warm up the transmission will not always shift up into Drive and overdrive causing the engine to race.


try checking the fluid level if it is even aa half pint off it can cause shift problems, if it is low add some Lucas transmisson oil condtioner this will help it shift smoother. also look at the color of the fluid is it brownish in color? if yes then it's time to change the filter and fluid. if you take it to a shop they chagre about $150.00 but it will keep you from damaging the transmisson. the oil and filter for the transmisson should be changed every 30,000 miles on any car. Thisis oone of the most overlooked items of maintence on cars peopel simply don't know about change the filter and oil till they have to pay for a new transmisson.

Check engine light on, auto transmission shifts gears abruptly


It should still be under warrenty Take it to the shop for repairs It is a transmisson problem but many things can cause the transmisson not to shift correctly. Call your service department and ask if you should drive it in or have it towed and do not drive till you have it figured out. If you have a warrenty and continue to drive it will void your warrenty.
