It wouldn't go into reverse or shift. At highway speeds the torque convertor locks up for increased efficiency and so that it generates less heat. This was in July of 2002. If all sensors are not reading right your trans may go into limp mode. Drove home while noticing the engine was having a hard time shifting from first to second. It was suggested that i rebuild the tranny, but I am wondering if anyone has any ideas as I can drive it around town with no problems? I need advice also on what to check next.
This should disengage the locking mechanism sort of like those vehicles that you have to push the button to remove the key. Or lock into second gear. Went to leave and had no reverse gear. I inquired that same month at Chevrolet about recalls, and they said that there were none. Driver's mirror replaced twice due to vibration and continues to vibrate, dealer refused to replace a third time due to a bugshield being installed even though mirror vibrated before bugshield was installed. They asked me to rebuild the transmission, replace it or … toll the car to the garbage yard. If you are having problems pulling the old switch out, there are two square holes on each side that you can insert a paper clip into one at a time while pulling the switch out and the switch should slide right out.
Such as, putting it in N Neutral but vehicle is really in D Drive? I do not believe him though. How many miles since you had it done? Both vehicles were totaled in the accident. With boltsloosened, remove the pan bolts at the pan corner and back the restpartially out so that the corner is low and the fluid drains intothe catch pan. This issue may be caused by a couple of different things. The shift linkage cable may be loose, bent or out of adjustment. Not being the most avid automatic man I need to know what I can check externally. What are the speed ranges for each of the four gears? After that, the vehicle started feeling weaker than before and even once stalled on a parking ramp.
Dealership found vehicle leaking from top of transmission line from radiator. I haven't done this procedure in a while, so if I missed a step, or if it's still giving you problems, I'd be willing to take mine apart again and write everything down. Does anyone out there no if there is anything that could be causing my shift issue on my 98 4x4 chevy blazer 4. This should line everything up correctly and all you have to do is put everything back together. I haven't had to fix it in a while, so maybe I didn't decribe it correctly.
We took it to aamco, where we were informed that it had to be rebuilt. For any other year other than 1997 it will be the tranny most of the time. When was the last time you serviced the tranny, does it recieve regular servicing, have you noticed anything else funny, oil leaking, how is the oil level, colour condition etc. Have you got it all hooked up like hoses and clamps and air intake hose? This module operates the transfer case. I am contacting the place where they replaced it tomorrow.
To get the key to rotate there is a push button under the steering column that can be pushed in. What code no did it have? Losing reverse is always scary, because that is the gear that gives out first when the transmission itself is going south. If they did it 2 years ago and you only got a 1 year warranty they probably won't charge you the full price to fix it but it's probably not going to be real cheap. And its a longer solenoid. Consumer was also informed that the transmission code proved that an after market part was used to replace the defective part previously. I have spoken with a few other chevy Blazer owners and they have informed me of the same problem with their vehicles.
When looking at the gear teeth on the old switch, rotate the gear so that there is a single tooth to the left, then a gap, then the rest of the teeth to the right. There is an electronic control module there screwed onto the sheetmetal behind the kick panel. I had the same thing go wrong with my '99 Blazer a few months back. Consumer took vehicle to a transmission specialist who confirmed that there was a defective part in the transmission. There should be no problem narrowing down a good almost exact quote with one of the most popular transmission every tranny shop sees. The gap between the teeth should be at a 90 degree angle to the switch straight out. I can drive off in first and it shifts normally to 2nd.
The problem remained the same after adjustments were made. My truck doesn't do any snowplowing or towing. I can't even begin to count how many times i've seen it on that trans. How is the engine running, idling and accelerating? Does anyone know if their is anything that could keep the truck from going into 3rd or 4th or am i screwed and need a new tranny. There are two ways to remedy the problem. This is where you have to see whats going on up to this point. You need to start working on that maf sensor signal.
