#209 of 324 1991 Chevy S-10 Tahoe Edition Slave Cylinder
Dec 07, 2009 (2:38 pm)
The clutch in my truck is leaking hydraulic fluid somewhere in it. I've taken it to a mechanic, who believes the slave cylinder is leaking. The price of fixing this, assuming it is the problem, depends on where the slave cylinder is located. I've been looking, but cannot find any information. I need to know if the slave cylinder is inside the transmission on this truck, or outside. If it is outside, it will be cheaper, and I want to make sure he doesn't charge me the inside price even if it is outside the transmission. It has a 2.8L V6 engine. Any help would be grateful, thanks.

Piston slap, oil needs to warm up before OD.

[seckard] symptoms are a broken sun shell, common problem on the 4L60E. Needs to be removed, dissembled and repaired. If high mileage, should be overhauled.

ok, so here it is. I have a 2001 sonoma with 110,000 miles. Auto trans., and the 2.2 engine. About 1,000 miles ago I got the check engine code P1870. (Transmission Component Slipping). So, I had all the fluids and filters changed. I mean all. Drained the pan and replaced the filter and had the system pumped out. When I did this, I did not have any metal shaving at all on the magnets inside the pan, but some of the plactic retaining clips on the wiring harness where very brittle and some even broken. But all connections seemed to be fine. I reset the codes and drove the truck for about 600 miles and the check engine code came back on. The Chevy garage told me it could be as simple as a external sensor, or much worse. I took the truck to a transmission shop, and the guy there told me that it would be about a 300.00 job, and then he said oh yes... that is unless he fines any of the plastic inside the pan housing broken. He said if that is the case I need a total break down and rebuild, and new wiring harness.. he said this would be between 1200.00 to 1400.00. Someone anyone... Is this the case? The truck seems to run and shift just fine on short trips, but anything over 30 to 40 miles and when shifting there is a short lag between first and second and if climbing a hill sometimes will then kick out of passing gear.

What I found out on the web is. The most likely cause is worn pump bushings and worn valve body.
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.
