There is also the possiblitly of the valve body gasket blowing out and causing loss of vacuum in the tranny. That is what happened to mine @ 100,000 miles. Transmission problems are best left to a pro. The basic thing you should concern yourself with is the Transmission Fluid. A higher, or lower level can cause shifting problems. Or of course, if the transmission fluid is dark or burnt, that can mean transmission problems too. But make sure the level is ok. If the fluid is ok, i'd get it inspected at a trusted transmission shop. Usually problems in transmissions start small, and if you catch them they can be remedied. Best of luck.
There are several things that can cause shifting problems in your 1989 Chevrolet Blazer transmission. The most common cause of shifting problems is a lack of transmission fluid. Broken shifting forks can also cause transmission shifting problems.
The transmission linkage connects the shifting the lever in the passenger compartment to the shifting lever on the transmission. You will find the shifting linkage on the side of the transmission.
Most likely worn engine mounts or transmission mount.
with mine the transmission was going out and it could be something as little as a bolt or as big as the transmission itself (my ford has 227000)
Shifting gears without syncros in your standard transmission would be anything but easy.
would an automatic transmission car jerk when shifting after having had a transmission flush
The most common cause of a automatic transmission jerking, when shifting, is low transmission fluid. Fill the transmission to the full mark.
Electric? Put transmission into neutral prior to shifting into 4wd Low
my transmission is not shifting on my 2005 Ford Taurus what could be the problem
possibly the throttle position sensor the sensor will also change the shifting pattern
Allison transmission not shifting
If your transmission is not shifting into third gear and overdrive it could be a parking pawl. This prevents the transmission from rotating.
The shift linkage on your Chevrolet Blazer automatic transmission will go from the shifting handle to the right hand side of the transmission. The shifting linkage is actually a shifting cable.
a broken dip stick wont cause hard shifting... the engine does not do the any shifting... your problem would be the transmission... check transmission....
Have transmission fluid and filter changed. Checked Transmission mounts
My 1984 corvette transmission is not shifting into overdrive. It shifts first thru third fine.
when the transmission is not shifting or changing out on a 1.8 jetta
Several things can cause your transmission to be stuck in second gear. Broken or detached shifting linkage will cause the problem. A broken shifting for in the transmission can also cause the problem.
An automatic transmission might be slow shifting from first to second because of low transmission fluid. You might also have damaged the gears in the transmission at the area between first and second.
An automatic transmission needs no manual shifting - a continuously variable transmission needs no manual shifting. Based on those parameters I believe that you are okay.
If it vibrates briefly only while shifting, it's probably the transmission slipping. If all other gears are shifting ok, you're about to loose the transmission.
Delayed shifting is because the transmission fluid is not warm enough to move through the internals of the transmission. You may need a transmission service,,,,,fluid change, new filter, etc. Transmission Fluid degrades with age.
Wheel joint, u-joints, Center support bearing.
When you have problem shifting gears, you transmission has a problem.
