July 25, 2007I have a 92 Full sized Chevy Blazer, With Transmission problems, I have a slight leak of red fliud, But the thing is when i reverse it runs real slow and if i turn the steering wheel to while reversing it stops... no matter how much gas i give it, It only happens in reverse, forward gears are no problem, I spoke with a guy who said he'd take a look and quoted me $800-$1000 without looking at it! Can anyone give me some idea of the problem so i can go for armed just in case as Tranny's aren't my forte lol

July 25, 2007Red fluid as in tranny fluid or as in power steering fluid?
July 26, 2007It looked like it was dripping from the filler of the transmission there is a rubber seal there but it seemed intact.
July 26, 2007Its extremely important to keep the tranny full of fluid.
Verify yours is full, smell it and notice the color while your cheking it.
To check the fluid level, start the engine, 20 minute drive (or shift through the gears if its not driveable), leave it parked on a flat level surface and leave the engine running, check the fluid level. Bottom of crosshatch to top is 1 pint (1/4 of a quart bottle of tranny fluid). Make sure its topped off.
$800-$1000 is a decent price if he rebuilds it.
Just for ****s and giggles, verify your powersteering fluid is full too.
as for the dipstick rubber seal, yea they can leak. It's a $5 part and one bolt holding the dipstick to the top tranny bolt on the passengers side. Bear to get too, but not hard to replace.
July 26, 2007I took it this morning to a guy he's gonna take a look at it. Its started being weird this morning, Going round left hand bends, It changed down the gear?! So i am waiting a call from him now and the costs... He said it should be around $800-$1000 For the repairs to the tranny. I checked all the fluids this morning with the motor idling and the levels were just above the hashed lines at cold.
