#226 of 505 2002 Chevy Trailblazer - Transmission
Mar 07, 2007 (3:31 am)
I would like to know how message 188 resolve her problems with GM in order for her to get a new transmission for only 250.00 dollars. I just experience the same problem as she did and I would like to see if I can get some advise from her. Please let me know.
I have a call in to GM and I am at a stand still right now. I would just like to know what words you told them that may help me out in getting the deal that you received.

I explained to them sound I heard and the behavour of the transmission. I told them that through research I believed the sun gear was the issue. They didn't acknowledge they knew what the sun gear was, but they kept recommending that I take it to my selling dealership. I did and I told them the same story I told GM rep. The dealership dove into the tranny found it was the sun gear, then they called GM and brought the offer to me.
From what I have read online & experienced, it seems that having an understanding dealership that values your past and possibly future business is key to getting a good deal.
#229 of 505 2 Tranny probs. Leak & Shift into A4WD
Mar 20, 2007 (5:27 pm)
I had to have the tranny cooler lines replaced last summer.They were rotted. Anyone else have this problem? Or could it be just from my harsh winters. 2003 TB 66,000 miles.
I just started having a problem when shifting from 2WD to A4WD. It sounds like the u-joint is going to fall apart. No problems in 2WD or in 4HI.
At what point will GM have to do a recall? It seems like there are a multitude of problems with TB Transmissions.
THanks in advance.

I posted a message waaay back about my tranny lines....the exhaust actually burned a hole in mine.
I recently replaced the trafer case control module on my 02 TB LT 4WD after getting stuck in a PARKING LOT this winter. I was not very impressed with the 4WD capabilities of the TB....seemed like the 4WD would engage for a second, but then slip out....in 4HI or LO. Replacing the TCM made a WORLD of difference in 4WD traction, and fixed the crummy mileage I had been getting for a while too. I believe the faulty TCM was engaging AWD at highway speeds without my knowledge.

My tranny went out and I replaced with a used tranny and it didn't work. I was told that sometimes the computer won't recognize the tranny. I disconnected the battery and reconnected didn't make any difference.

I bought mine used in 2003 with 26000 miles, and just traded it in for a 2007 Honda Civic. Saving $190 in gas, alone, each month.
I loved the truck at first, but right before I traded it in at 80000 miles, I began running into a slew of problems (tranny, ball joints, AC working sporadically, half the fan speeds did not work, multiple replacements of tail light bulbs (after recall fix,) 2 new water pumps, fan clutch.....ugh. I was glad to be rid of it for $700 more than I owed. I have owned two Fords that had 120K+ miles when I traded them in, and a Isuzu Trooper with 190K miles when it finally died. What happened to GM vehicles, I'll never know. I certainly won't be buying one again, however....

I just replaced my 4wd switch not too long ago and the switch itself was only $25. All together to have the dealership fix it was $120. Like you I have had alot of recalls done on my 2004 TB, but luckily the 4wd switch was the first problem i've had.
#234 of 505 Transmission and Fan CLutch

I have a 2003 TB 2wd and the transmission is having problems at only 50000 miles. Also the fan clutch and O2 sensor had to be replaced. My auto starts out in 2nd gear and at highway speeds it won't stay in overdrive. It hunts for the right gear. My dealer thinks it's a valve in the transmission. It's going to cost about $1600.00. After reading all the other replies on this site I think it's a manufacturer defect.

How many miles did you have on it?
