Transmission slipping in 95 blazer


You could try a transm. drain and refill and replace the fluid filter while doing so. When you drop the transmission pan (after draining), check for how much metal shavings are in the pan. There should be a magnet on the pan to collect shavings. If it doesn't look like too much, you could proceed with the filter change, then replace gasket for pan and put pan back on, and refill transm. and try it. Sometimes a fluid and filter helps, sometimes not if damage is too severe.

When driving 35 mph + the front end seems to bump it feels like going over a bump in the road i dont think its the transmission because it does not happen when shifting it happens more when driving up hill...


Could be a tire out of round, or even a bad strut. Bounce the front end, if it's spring like, the strut (s) may be bad. Look for leaking of oil from them, that is a sign of a bad strut.

Oil light comes on while idling, goes out when 97 cavalier reaches 30 - 35 mph


It sounds like worn engine bearings.
Some Motor Honey or STP might help a little, but an engine rebuild might be in your future

1994 ford tempo; vehicle upshifts late, won't shift until 35-40 mph after high reving fro 35 mph, then again at 65 mph after high reving from 55 mph to 65 mph.


Sounds like your transmission is on the fritz. Try changing the fluid and filter see if that helps. If that doesnt try a can of anti slip from any good parts place (Napa). If this dosent help it's time for a rebuild on the transmission

94 cavalier z24 boggles and stalls when stopping after going over 35-40 mph


This is a longshot, I recall a Pontiac Fiero that had a similar problem. It turned out to be the TCC ( torque converter clutch ). which is part of the transmission. The TCC engages when in high gear ( 4th gear in your case ) . It is supposed to DISENGAGE when stepping on the brakes and slowing down. If it doesnt disengage, what you are experiencing occurs. Does it do it all the time or only when car reaches operating temperature ?.

Transmission shifts erratically in hot weather


replace the fluid in the transmission with the new DEXRON 6 fluid, it in many cases this new synthetic fluid solves this kind of problem, also replace the fluid filter while u are at it.
