Question about Chevrolet Blazer

2 Answers

I have a 1997 4x4 blazer 4.3L, and I would like to have an exclusive oil transmission cooling system instead the actual beside-inside the water cooler radiator. So, I want to know wich of the following options I have to choose from: a) the heavy duty radiator or the medium-low duty to cool the transmission oil, as well as how to fix it. All the above is to increase the oil working life in such a way I could change oil not so quickly (4-6 months).

    Keep in mind that if you drive in cold climates that cooling off too much can restrict the flow.
    Very cold fluid gets very thick and will slow down the flow rate.
    In the meantime, the hot fluid builds up in the transmission.
    I have seen it damage transmissions.

Well.. one solution would be to buy a dedicated oil cooler available at most auto parts stores. You would have to cap off the original fittings on radiator, and install the new cooler, typically in front of the radiator. Also you could install a remote oil filter kit anywhere there is space in the engine compartment. Also, I have to wonder, why are you changing transmission so often? It should last years not months. Not that there is anything wrong with changing it though. Keeping the transmission fluid cool does help extend its life however.

Transmission Fluid gets changes every 30,000 miles
on all vehicles

You can by pass the radiator cooler and put a trans
cooler in front of the condenser

Lot of work making the brakets and making it nice

The approx 7"x11" stacked plate cooler is what you
want,not the cheap tube and aluminum fin junk

Use Power Steering Cooler Hose,not fuel line

May polo IS MIXING oil with water in the cooling system but the oil is clean,its does not mix with water.What could be the problem.


The oil that is in the cooling system may be Transmission fluid if you have an automatic transmission and the transmission cooler in internal to the radiator. Check your transmission oil for water contamination. If it is contaminated, you will probably have to rebuild the transmission and replace ALL of the transmission lines, and all rubber coolant hoses as the transmission fluid will eat the rubber hoses from the inside.

Is it posible for the transmission atf to leak inside the radiator. because i dettect water inside the transmission and oil in the radiatorssion smission


Yes.
most cars have a transmission cooler that runs through the radiator. Most often the coolant goes from the cooling system to the transmission and then quickly ruins the transmission..
you should get this fixed asap, hopefully you can avoid a transmission failure. A quick remedy would be to un hook the transmission cooling lines from the radiator then cap the ends on the radiator and then mount a separate transmission cooler.
The big problem is that you will need to flush that transmission as soon as you can. Get the trans oil changed pronto!

1999 dodge durango transmission has water inside


If transmission oil cooler is leaking, engine coolant may enter cooler, or transmission oil may enter engine cooling system. Both engine cooling system and transmission oil circuit should be drained, flushed, and inspected.

Oil in the cooling system


oil in the cooling system comes from a transmission oil cooler in the radiator leaking. I take it that you have an automatic transmission Normally if you have a gasket problem the water would be in the sump oil. You will need to replace the radiator to effectively fix the problem and as a side suggestion consider an air cooled transmission oil cooler for the transmission oil as it helps the car to run cooler and keeps the transmission oil cooler and extends the life of the transmission.

Does my jeep 3.1td 2001 has a water oil cooling?


some cars are designed with an engine oil cooler that allows radiator coolants to run through it to aid cooling the oil for longer life. and most of the radiators are designed to cool automatic transmission fluid which is routed through an oil cooler in it.

1995 blazer won't shift


Look at the transmission control module and the shift solenoids inside the transmission. It's possible you have lost a connection in the harness plug that goes to the transmission.
