My neighbor is going through all the headaches on his old truck with changing out the original running gear with other.
Last year I had the trany overhauled on my S-10. I dropped it and put it back up myself to save a few bucks. The transmission shop charged me $550 to put an overhaul kit in it. By the time I got done I had around $600. in it and its been trouble free since.
Good luck. Keep us posted on how it works out.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
Also my 4 wheel drive is not working, i can shift it into low gear and it goes into low but front tires arent locked in.
BTW 1995 s10 4.3 TBI 5 speed
With your attitude you should not even be working on it. Transmission work take a patient cool head, you have neither.
You work on German stuff I assume, over engineered and over priced. I worked on Setra Motor Coaches, what a junk.
I would think the leak is forward of the transmission because of the fluid on the oil pan. Good luck.
when taking off from a stop light, pushing the clutch in and shifting into first then releasing the clutch and pressing the accelerator about the moment the clutch is released I hear a loud "CLUNK" and things work fine though now after a few weeks of hearing this, I noticed this occurring similarly after second gear. still drives and operates fine just that disturbing noise. Any thoughts?
1] There is no dipstick on any Manual Tranny in the last Century.
2] I'll bet it's new tranny time.
You can always cripple it over to a tranny shop to confirm.
But that's why they have fill plugs on trannys, and change out the fluid every 30,000 at the max.
All trannys produce shrapnel and all it's doing is mixing into all the bearings till they fall apart like rotten teeth.
If it's whining at all going through the gears, it's definitely low.
Clunking can come from several points, but at the point you mentioned, I would guess the pilot bearing that is press fit at the crank shaft supporting the input shaft of tranny.
This brass bushing or maybe a real bearing keeps the shaft centered and also is the main support for the clutch disc. The clutch disc if not perfectly centered will Chatter badly at first as it tries to center itself just as it's being clamped solid between the pressure plate and flywheel.
You can test this yourself with someone holding in on the clutch pedal and with inspection cover off see if you can move disc up or sideways. It should not.
Only cure is remove tranny.
From what I have read the 4 fails about the same as the 6cyl.
My 4 auto has only 53K, so I don't know how long mine will last.
The thing is to replace the worn pump bushings the transmission has to come out, the valve body can be done in place.
You need to go to a good independent transmission shop, stay away from the chain shops, they just want to replace the complete unit.
