It's a bell shaped item on the side of the unit. it has a vacuum hose attached to it. There should be vacuum at the hose with the engine running and no fluid should be inside it...if any drips out when you disconnect the vacuum hose, it's bad. You may have an easier time finding it if you go to a parts store and ask to look at one so you know what you are looking for.

It's on the transmission itself. It's help in by a clip that has a bolt through it. It should stand out as though it looks like it doesn't belong on there. It's a fairly inexpensive part.

Is there a vacuum hose on the transmission of a 1986 crown Vic

that depends on transmission, non computer shift transmissions have a vacuum shift diagram. round cyclinder on back end of tansmission. if it goes bad it will cause your car to smoke, sucking trans fluid into carb. no vacuum can cause shifting problems

Transmission will not up shift seem like its stuck 1st or 2nd fluid is not burnt does not seem to slip it does have check engine light on but do not know code yet.

Your transmission seems to have gone into a condition called "limp in". This is caused by the transmission control module recognizing a problem in the operation of your tansmission. "limp in" is used to protect the transmission from further damage but still allow you to reach a service facility. The transmission is onluy able to use 2nd gear and reverse during this condition. You will have to have the transmission fault determined by a computer scan. An automotive repair facility can advise you further regarding repair.
Good Luck

My Blazer just got a new transmisson, but it will not shift. It just stays in first gear. Also, the speedometer will not work, and the ABS light comes on?

speedo not working could be they put the new transmission in and did not connect or the gear is missing or the wrong type .

sounds like vacume assit module is bad or not connected in the back of the transmission is a brass colored bell shaped part with a vacume line attached right above the tansmission pan follow the vacume line could have slipped between the engine and transmission and is kinked or wasnt connected at all wich could be the case if your speedo isnt connected abs light could be because you have a vacume leak because the vacume assit module isnt connected.

How do I buy a used tansmission from a junkyard?

Buying a used transmission can be a tough choic.
You want to get one with a warranty and also covers the labor to replace the used transmission if it does go out.
I would start with your phone book call the local salvage yards see what they have to offer to you. Then do a Goggle search on the transmission to see what is out there nationaly for a used one.
Also there is other rebuilders who might do a better warranty for you.
Let me know if i can help more!

The tansmission will change out the first time but when it get ready to change out the second time it will not like it slips out of gear then when i get off the gas it will kick back in first gear

check propper fluid specs, replace filter inside pan, make sure you have dex 3 or greater compatible fluid, make sure fluid is not burnt, some times when you flush the system, the internal bands have deposits that stick to them allowing them not to slip. when running a flush these deposits can rub off meaning extensive wear on your bands, easy solution, don't bag drive your ****
