Chevy S10 transmission

I have an automatic 99 or 2000 chevy s-10, with 189k miles, and the transmission is failing, cant reverse, (acts as neutral) and doesnt shift into gears as quickly. Should I keep it?

Re: Chevy S10 transmission

depends on the condition of the truck. if the body is straight, no major dents or rust, general good mechanical order (minus the trans) and if you like it come into consideration.

IMO i dont think a broken trans is a good reason to get rid of it. you probably wont get much out of it. you could swap a trans in relatively cheap. also there is the chance that its an electrical issue and not mechanical. Not sure if its a question that we can answer, but something you have to ask yourself.

Re: Chevy S10 transmission

My automatic tranny has issues shifting into park. Everything else seems normal but when I try putting it into park it doesn't grab and sounds like I'm playin frickin' roulette or like I just spun the wheel on Wheel of Fortune. More often than not I have to put it into reverse and, as the trucks moving, shift back into park before it will catch. Obviously, even tho I'm barely moving when I do this, it's not at all good for my tranny and I wanna fix it asap. Any thoughts or suggestions?

If the engine runs strong and there are no other issues, just rebuild or replace the transmission. It's cheaper than buying a new car.

Re: Chevy S10 transmission

I say get it rebuilt if all else is well with the truck. When the monthly repair bills cost more than a newer truck payment, then maybe time to trade it out...

^if you live close or are willing to drive I got a auto trans from a '00 2.2 truck with 90k

For a nominal fee I can also install it
