thanks first time poster (rookie car owner)
Sometimes just replacing or repair of the valve body will work, a sure thing is pump bushings also. The valve body can be done installed, trans needs to be removed for pump bushing. At 110,000 most shops would want to do a complete overhaul if removed for repair.
The $300 sounds like valve body repair, that may work, if not pump bushing next.
If it was mine I would want both done, The pump is the first part to be removed so no need to go further.
Not too scare you but, if it gets to the point where it will not go into OD you will burn up the transmission, converter and all.
Replaced housing and found trans slipping at higher speeds.
Told him to replace trans with rebuilt. Bought used one and had his friends install...(Ishould have done it)
Now it does NOTHING! Just revs in all gears, no grinding or odd noises. He said when the finished it moved out of garage, they stopped and check levels of fluid, added more. Than it did nothing. I checked level and it was 1/2 up the stick..I mean like 4 qts heavy!, I pulled pan, filter is good, lots of metal on magnet. Filled to proper level. Still nothing. I hate to believe he got a bad trans but would like to know if they maybe missed something? For it to wrok for a moment and not to work after over filling seems odd.
If it won't go in manual 1-2-3-R, it's not electrical.
All I have is 2nd and reverse. Speedometer quit at the same time.
This is the nightmare year that was in between ob1 and ob2 that you can't pull codes from. What were the "brains" at GM thinking?
New filter and fluid.
No matter where the shifter is in forward it starts in 2nd when it finally does try to upshift it acts like it's in neutral and drops back to 2nd when I step on the gas.
Also anti-lock started to act up about a week before tranny problem.
Any suggestions ?
Stuck without a ride until I fix it. Low on $$$$
Know my way around a wrench.Not a newbie.
Does anybody make a decent S-10 shop manual?
Clymer's and Chilton are a joke and the 4x4 section is disgusting at best.
My Bentley books (vw) are big bucks but at least they cover things.
Just ordered what I needed.
Hope shipping doesn't take too long.
Not cheap, but you get what you pay for.
I noticed that you have helped a lot of people here.
I'm new to this forum, so far it's the best one I've found.
It seems most of the others are filled with kids wanting to know how
to bag their ride, install a "fart can" , or sub-woofer.
Any thoughts about my tranny problem in my first post?
I've had other cars that went in to "limp home" mode act like this.
With no way to pull codes from a '95, I'm kind of shooting in the dark here

They used the same trans in a bunch of different years, but not the same computers in the truck. The transmission must match the computer. And NO the computer from earlier years '94 or '95 won't work in newer ones. '95 was an oddball it only fits 1 year.
May not be your problem, but something to look at.
Needs to come apart.
Found another '95 transmission, transfer case, and t converter for $200.
Ugh I hate the thought of doing this job , No help around.

Only problem is I've got so much stuff in the way it takes me an hour to make room to work on anything. Have a workshop that I built to work on 1 car at a time that has more stuff in it than most dealerships, everything but a lift.
Used, but in better shape than described, mostly on the cover, just a little dirty.
1 of a 2 part set.
The others are (2) the mechanical, and there are some detailed supplements for sub-systems like air bags, A/C, anti-lock, auto-transmission.
The one I have details all the problems that have you banging your head against the wall, and in depth coverage. Not for the guy with a screwdriver and a $5.00 socket set with the car up on cement blocks behind the house.
Been there, done that. (young and dumb) I miss my '65 Satellite street racer, and my hair ! Getting the mechanical book when the price is right.
Pulls and shifts good, just this little glitch.
I suspect a solenoid or modulator problem, but I dont know enough about these new fangled computer trannys to know where to start.
