2001 Chevrolet Blazer ZR2 4.3 from North America
It's not the best car I have owned, but a good one
Fuel pump was replaced at 115000.
Automatic transmission filter fell off, causing all movement of the vehicle to stop. The vehicle would not move forward or reverse.
I am writing this review to alert people that own a ZR2 about a specific incident that could cause them and mechanics to think that the vehicle needs a new transmission.
A Blazer ZR2 that has the deep pan automatic transmission can have the transmission filter fall out of the seal inside the transmission into the bottom of the pan, causing the transmission to lose all hydraulic functions. (engine running the car won't move at all) If your Blazer ZR2 (deep pan models) won't move in any gear with the engine running, make sure that the repair facility removes the transmission pan to look at the filter. If they find the filter in the bottom of the pan when they remove it, that's the problem and you do not need to replace the transmission. This situation could be a big rip off for the customer if the repair facility does not check the filter.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
