What's going on with my Chevy Blazer transmission?

A common problem with the Chevrolet S-10 Blazer 4L60E transmission is an rough 1-2 shift, delayed engagement of a gear, or a shudder / loud shaking from the transmission at low speeds. This is probably caused by a broken 4L60E 1-2 accumulator, which is a little plastic damper that is designed to absorb excess fluid pressure that builds up during a gear change.

If you're driving and the transmission refuses to go into 3rd or 4th gear, then you're probably experiencing another one of the more common Chevrolet S-10 Blazer transmission problems. It stems from a worn out or broken metal disc inside of the 4L60E 3-4 clutch pack.

If you go to take off from a stop, but it takes forever for the transmission to shift from 1st to 2nd, then you may have a broken or excessively worn 4L60E 2-4 transmission band. Most of the time, the friction material on the band is too worn to engage the clutch drum, resulting in the slow 1-2 shift, or high engine revs between 2nd and 3rd gears.
