Question about 1990 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer

1 Answer

Automatic Tranmission forward gear works reverse doesn't

1990 full size Chevrolet Blazer 4WD, 700 series transmission I believe. If it has not been shifting through forward gears for a while then when put in reverse it won't make any sound as if it was shifting and just be like its in neutral. After maybe 20 minutes on a highway it will shift right in reverse.

Does it have a automatic or manuel trans? You said gears, manuel trans, possible shift fork, syncro, anyway you will need
some serious work done to it....rebuild it or replace it.....

Blazer drives forward but not in reverse have been told transmission is out and not out


The two only causes I can think of for this IF it is an automatic is either low fluid or shifter alignment. Does the shifter align with the marks for all the forward gears? If you slowly go from park to drive, does reverse engage at any point?

If it is not fluid or shifter, then the transmission needs to be checked. Could be reverse gear or if lucky just the bands are not catching for reverse.

Was pushing snow and heard aloud ping while in reverse and it quit pulling.all forward gears still work. sounded like a u-joint. believe me i no that sound.i drive it like i stoled it. lol.but thats what...


not sure if this is an automatic or manual transmission 1st (automatic)if all forward gears are still working what it sounds like is that the reverse drum in the transmission has come apart. which will eventually cause the forward gears to start to go if thats the case, the rapir for the reverse drum is internal the transmission will need to be rebuilt. you can just put a reverse drum, but my opinion is there will be more damage and while its out might as well rebuild the entire transmission. you didnt mention if it was 4 wd or not and only rarely have i seen a transfer case cause the same issue, once most recently in a f150 with a manual transmission i was working on the chain stretched so bad it lost reverse but had all forward gears. 2nd (manual) could have lost the reverse synchronizer whic again the trans will need to be repaired either with just a syncro or complete rebuild. hope this helps

2000 chevy blazer reverse is out and transfer case makes noise when shifted into reverse.The 4wd dash switch doesn't come on and it is stuck in 4wd. It will shift into forward gears.


I'm Going to say the low/reverse 1 way roller clutch is broken,you are hearing the low/rev.planetary gear set spinning.it is at the very rear of the tranny,right where it bolts to the transfer case.It may have died of old age but the ones I've broken have been rocking the truck out of snow or holeshots.If that's the only thing wrong,it's a cheap(used) part but the whole transmission has to come apart,lots of labor.

My 2001 Blazer will go forward but doesnt go in reverse. Is there a reverse switch on or near the transmission?


Does the gear selector show that is in reverse? Does the transmission have gear selector solenoids on the transmission? If so, may be a bad reverse select solenoid. Do the 'backup' lights come on when reverse is selected?

No forward movement but reverse works fine. Help?


More than likely the forward clutches are burnt,causing the no forward movement problem.Remove the transmission dipstick and smell the fluid,if it smells like burnt coffee then you need the transmission rebuilt.

I have a 1986 Chevy S-10 Blazer with an Automatic Transmission that will not go into any forward gears in 2 wheel or 4 wheel drive, but will go into reverse. The engine is fine. The transmission fluid is...


Clarification please... Do you mean by "go into" as the shift linkage will not move into the forward ranges or that the vehicle will not move forward? Both are possible scenarios but very different. Let me hear clarification for sending a test procedure for either one.
