Transmission oil keeps blowing out of vent tube

Asked by Aug 15, 2010 at 08:58 AM about the 1996 Chevrolet Blazer

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1996 Blazer 4wd and transmission oil keeps blowing out the vent tube. When I bought the Blazer the transmision was over full so I drained a quart out of it and it seemed to stop. Now oil is blowing out vent tube again. Any suggestions?

Same thing happened to mine last summer. Follow the vent tube down to the transfer case and there will be a check valve with three tubes going into it. This check valve is defective. Unfortunately you need to drop the transfer case out in order to fix it. I had to replace the check valve and the gasket between the tranny and transfer case. Good luck
