June 1, 2010i have a 95 s10 blazer, and the tranny is shot. i cant find a used one under $450 for a 4x4 but a guy i know has a trans out of a 4.3 2wd S10 for $100 w/torque convertor. i would buy the right one, but the truck also needs a rearend and right now i cant afford both at that price. so could i use the 2wd trans just to get by for a little while and get back on the road so i can get to work and make the money to get the right trans?

June 2, 2010The 4x4 trans has a shorter output shaft that would have to be transferred over to the 4x2 trans. So unless you want to swap parts over the answer would be no they won`t swap over.
June 4, 2010It won`t swap over you`d have to pull the trans apart to swap the out put shaft and for that much you might as well rebuild the one you have I know you can get a basic rebuild kit relatively cheap. I can`t quote any prices for sure cause the one I rebuilt I got it from trans star while going to Wyotech and used the student account that had better pricing. It be safe to say maybe 150 for they`re rebuild kit from Trans star. depending on what`s actually wrong with the trans.
June 6, 2010I got a red flag from your post.
Typically both the rear end and tranny dont go out at the same time. What makes you think one or both are shot?
June 9, 2010the transmission was bad when i got it, reverse, 1st and 2nd gear work perfect but when it shifts to 3rd it is pretty much like being in neutral. i broke the rear end after i got the truck playing in the woods with it, i just finished replacing that and went to put the wheels back on and they touch the frame. it must be out of an older body style blazer or something.
im probably going to end up buying a rebuild kit and having someone rebuild it, but i have another question. the blazer has a vortec 350 in it out of a 96 1500, should i get a used V8 4l60e or are they the same as the V6 trans? the tranny in it is the original to the blazer.
June 13, 2010the tranny behind the 4.3`s and the small block V8`s are the same for the most part they`ll bolt up. the torque converter could be a little different but the difference would be in the stall speed. with the 4L60 as long as it`s the 4L60E there should be no issue just use the V8`s PCM if running the V8 cause the shift points and line pressure will be different. the PCM controls that. the older ones you`d poddibly have to change the governor to one for the V8 models.
