Q: Transmission on 2002 Chevrolet Trailblazer

Bought 2002 TB LTZ 2mos ago, had about 140,000 on it already. Didnt want it, but I was in a bind so I had no choice. Since I got it, the front brakes and rotors had to be replaced because they were shot. The cd player stopped working a week after I got it and now I have to replace the fan clutch. My question is, how long do I have before the transmission gives me problems?, Im aware this vehicle has a history of that too.

If the transmission fluid is clean and clear, and the transmission works OK, then I wouldn't think it's likely to fail in the near future.
I don't think that these transmissions are prone to failure. Sure, lots of transmissions have failed but they built many of these vehicles and they've been on the road for many years so you would expect to see failures.
If you have doubts, get it checked by a transmission shop.
