|Transmission q from a noob.
||[Jan. 17th, 2011|07:14 am]
I have a 1999 Chevy Blazer with automatic trans and about 90,000 miles on it. Once in a while, when I shift from park to drive, it seems to slip a gear. This doesn't happen very often. I make sure to completely stop before shifting and it still does it. It's done this once in a while pretty much since I've had the car (last April).
Now the other night I put my car in reverse from park and it wouldn't go. The engine revved but it seemed like the gear wasn't engaging? IDK. It did this twice. (It was very cold outside if that has anything to do with it)
My question: Does this sound like a serious transmission problem or can this be put off for a while? I'm completely flat broke right now, ugh.
Other question: The car has some electrical issues. The FWD, cruise control, and back hatch button only work (seemingly) when they feel like it. I'm afraid my FWD is engaging when I don't want it to, because the light on the 2 HI button isn't always on and sometimes my car rides a little rough. If that's the case, could this be what's messing with my transmission?
Any help is appreciated. :)
