Sick Tranny
 
This is the first time I've ever posted anything so I hope this goes OK. I have a '95 S-10 Blazer 4x4 and I'm afraid the transmission is about to go. It will generally go up to about 3-3.5 rpm, stay there for about 10 seconds before switching gears, and when it does it isn't very smooth. Tonight on the way home it got even worse. It revved all the way up to 4 rpms while going about 40 mph. When I let off the gas it went immediately back down to 2 rpm. Then when I gave it gas again it shot straight up to 4 rpms again with no increase in power. What is even more frustrating is that the original stock tranny that is in there has already been rebuilt over a year ago. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I though they were supposed to last a little longer than that. I know it is a 4L60E automatic transmission and that's about it. Please help! I don't have much money but I need some god practical solutions. If there are any solid transmissions for me to replace it with that are reliable, and really tough then let me know. By the way, does anybody know warranty information on these things? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

BEFORE you go and start replacing trannies. Make sure that your catalytic converter isn't plugged up.

A plugged cat will rob power almost immediately when it gets full of gunk. If you can disconnect it and drive around for a little bit you can tell right off the bat. I forgot if the cats on s-10's are flanged or welded.

It's just that when you explain that you're doing 4,000 rpm's with no power increase and not getting over, say, 40 mph, that's what I think of.

Callt eh place you got it rebuilt at and ask what the warranty is.. Probably like 6 months so your out of luck there.. Next is with the engine running and warm check the tranny dipstick.. See if its low or a colour other than red.. Smell it..[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img] If its not red or stinks like its burnt then replace it and its filter.. You can do it yourself.. If that does not fix it then your only out $15 and an hrs worth of time.. Next would be take it to a shop and have them put it on the scaner.. Might find some sensor thats not reading right..
