2001 Chevy S-10 transmission leaked all the fluid.
I bought my first 2001 Chevy s10 4cyl. extra cab, 150,000 miles ,automatic about 5 months ago and the transmission leaked all the fluid, started to lose a little power & smoke started to appear from trans. fluid leaking on exhaust pipe! some one recommended me a trans. shop so i I took it........ they told me i need to reconstruct the whole transmission.$2,300- $2,800 :0 for parts and labor..... They thought it might be the seal, pump or the cylinder head?? should I get the whole tyranny rebuilt or try to get it repaired? I LOVE THE WAY MY CHEVY DRIVES, I have to roll with the punches at this time & try rescue trucky! any help/comments? thnx- josh- 5-15-15
