    WHICH TRANS WOULD YOU ALL SUGGEST? MANUAL OR AUTOMATIC? LOOKING TO BUY A NEW S-10 4X4 W/4.3 VORTEC V-6. PLEASE ADVISE WHAT WORKS AND WHAT DOESN'T. THANKS FOR YOUR ADVICE.

    Automatic,all the way,GM makes good auto trannys,this one will hold up well.If your plowing with it,it is much faster,just put an auxilary cooler on it.

    Another thing I like to do after plowing hard for a little while, park, put the truck in neutral, and rev the engine up to about 2000-RPM for about a minute or two. Helps cool the trans off by pulling air through the cooler faster.
