Re: need transmission help

It's been almost 13 years since I rebuilt a transmission (700R4- Caprice) but it wasn't terribly difficult. Harder than say, a powerglide, but not horrible. From the sound of it, you broke some hard parts, if I had to guess I'd say a sun shell, but I wouldn't buy anything until it was apart and inspected.

My transmission went out in May, I opted to get one from an S10. It bolted right in and has been fine. I kept my old one as I intend to eventually rebuild it with some heavy duty parts, as I tow a camper with my van on occasion. If you decide to get a used one, pay attention to what year it came from. I don't remember offhand what years directly interchange, but I know there's differences between some years around 1995.

Welcome aboard!

AutomaticThe purpose of an Automatic Transmission is similar to that of a manual transmission, the auto tranny's primary duty is to allow the engine to operate in its narrow range of speeds while providing a wide range of output speeds.
