It could be a slipping front or forward clutch, to determin this try to get it into a higher gear, but no slippage in reverse, then it's the rear clutch that's bad.

Sounds like a pump issue, check line pressure. If it does have a bad trans pump it can be changed with out removing the trans. But also check the fluid level if you haven't already.

You have a 4L60E whick is controled by your ECM. It sounds like you need and new transmission, the sun gear in it has failed and is the weak point on this transmission. 
When you get a new transmission have them to a corvette servo upgrade. The part is only $45.00 and the shop should know about the upgrade. It will make your truck shift a lot more firmer but last longer. 
Here is a write up http://s-series.org/component/option,com_tech_article/Itemid,/item,6/task,item/
Good luck and hope this helps

first thing i would try is changing the transmission fluid out and filter, i beleive its almost 8 quarts. use a full quart of lucas transmission additive with the new fluid. if this doesn't help, the transmission will either need replaced or rebuilt

1984 k 5 blazer 5.7ltr auto w/ overdrive. What tranny do i have? Why will it go in reverse an not in drive?


Well, that might be tough, you can google it, or crawl around and look for the casting numbers on the ****** itself. It could be a 3 speed transmission, but the exact type probly is harder. I bet its a 700R.

IT IS NOT GOING INTO NEUTRAL. IT HAS LOST THE DIRECT DRIVE CLUTCH PACK INTERNALLY. SOUNDS LIKE IT IS HIGH MILEAGE. IF SO AND YOU CHANGE THE FLUID IT CLEANS UP ALL THE VARNISH IN THE TRANNY AND THE END RESULT IS TRANNY MALFUNCTIONS DEPENDING ON WHAT KIND OF CARE IT HAS HAD IN THE PAST.
