    Transmission suddenly out while driving! No reverse or any drive gears

    Pan gasket should be reusable, instead of leaving pan off, just put it back on, change filter if you want. Trans fluid is very good at resisting rust and corrosion, but its better idea to just put pan back on, at least bolts in the corners, or all of them to keep track of the hardware.

    Transmission suddenly out while driving! No reverse or any drive gears

    Actually dropping the pan wouldn't be a bad idea and you can inspect the pan for metal debris or chunks of broken parts.

    Transmission suddenly out while driving! No reverse or any drive gears

    Sounds heat related or electrical since It will work for at least a few minutes, unles the fluid is hotter and slips past seals. What are codes you are getting? The pump either works or its busted. No point in replacing filter and new fluid, something inside sounds messed up. Internal harness or...

    Transmission suddenly out while driving! No reverse or any drive gears

    At least write the code numbers down. Its actually telling you a direction to go as in whats wrong. Does it move in D 3 2 or 1/L ?? Not sure what the PRNDL displays on Impala.

    Finally getting tired of no AC

    when we test for leaks, you can't always find them with vacuum, so we have a nitrogen tank and a manifold gauge set that pressurizes the system and we spray suspect areas with soap, like you would with a tire.

    Yep, more HVAC issues

    I'm still having similar problems. I changed the front fan clutch and the cycling switch. My symptoms are; blows warm after maybe 25-30 minutes of driving. Sometimes after 35 minutes and I park, it still blows cold. But when I leave that place I drove to, the AC will not blow hot anymore. Not...

    A 5/8" double end hose barb and worm clamps, then wrap with tape so it doesn't get hung up on stuff for now.

    AC Fail

    If the rear lines get shot and you know where it is leaking, you can get the system evacuated, go to junk yard and find the part of the line you need, splice in the good used line and get it recharged. hardest part is getting the tool that just clamps a fitting onto the line. We sell the...

    What are you doing today?

    it will be ok. Just working on vans sucks a whole lot more. I hope at least they gave you a list of what failed inspection so we can help you get it fixed up. I bet it only like maybe $500 in parts @Kurb

    Need some help solving electrical flickering

    From my GM parts catalog PN s 25790682 no matter if its 2WD/AWD/5.3/6.0 same fuse box. Probably doesn't help to diag the issue tho. Can you DE-Pin one wire at a time at the alt plug and see if it changes on one wire at a time? I don't know if this would damage anything, need a schematic? There...

    What are you doing today?

    thing is..., is that I can get some wheels (free I hope) from work. But they are 6*120, NOT 6*5 (or 6*127) So I am gathering part numbers and such for center caps, locks, lugs, and tires, and adapters. wheels look like they are for a 2018 or so Acadia. P/N 22996333

    Has any one used wheel adapters on a trailblazer cons and pros ????? Any input

    I would be concerned too with a 4WD. but if I had to replace hub bearings on a 2WD, should really be easy. But the guys with lifted trucks and spacers or adapters would have to chime in if they JUST do trail runs or if its a daily driver

    NEED HELP Wont start after engine swap

    also recheck your Trans range switch, sounds like you have some weird voltage backfeeding or grounded out wire somewhere. If you aren't confident in the wiring of the range switch, I would just replace the whole pigtail and start over. P/N for the 7 pin for my 2003 2WD is 15305887 or PT1031

    What are you doing today?

    Suspension choosen but should I replace....

    Ok, so I talked to the suspension guy and we used the XL/EXT because the short WB sat too low UNLOADED. The axle housings (where bottom spring perch is) have the same part number from my 2003 2wd, to a 2005 short WB, only different axle housing I see is for a V8. So... Short WB strutmaster...

    NEED HELP Wont start after engine swap

    I know this is kinda far from topic, and the flickering maybe related to something else, but did you use original alternator or one that came with donor engine, and have you checked voltage from alternator? Can you still not communicate with the PCM via OBD port?

    Sold my Trailblazer today

    Try and get one with a 6.0, the other cylinder deactivation engines are junk. Burning oil, lifter tap, cams being wiped. Or budget $5000 in engine, parts, and labor when it acts up.

    Suspension choosen but should I replace....

    For customers at our dealership that don't want to spend thousands on airbags and new compressor, we offer to install strutmaster springs in the rear. And our suspension guy always wants the XL springs because it sits level after the install, but towing could be an issue possibly. It has been...

    Has any one used wheel adapters on a trailblazer cons and pros ????? Any input

    maybe this a more appropriate thread for my adapter question. Looks like everything will be fine since @Drumtrail has 2015 wheels on his TB. Is MarkMC still active around here? seems like this is what I need...

    Upgraded fan clutch

    So I did my fan clutch today since I can't stand waiting. I did not remove the shroud. I used two longer M8 bolts. A 60MM would probably be the best. Take 2 completely out, then insert the longer ones a few threads in, enough to not come out by wiggling a little bit. then take the other two fan...
