Question about 1997 Chevrolet Blazer

97 blazer transmission

My blazer one day just would not go into reverse. I could put it on the "R" but it would not catch. I can go to the other gears but it takes a long time to shift from 1st to 2nd. I have always kept the fluids checked...I need help on what it may be. Thanks

Automatic transmission won't catch any gear?


Check trans fluid levels, if this is ok, could be a torque converter or valve body solenoids issue.

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.

No reverse or overdrive in my 97 Blazer


Hello and welcome. this is usually caused by a stripped sun gear or broken sunshell inside the transmission. this requires the transmission to be removed and torned down to replace.

1997 chevy blazer awd - no reverse and slipping in forward - oil good no leaks - whats this?


It sounds like the sun shell inside the transmission that is faulty, and that is due to a manufacturing process..
Unfortunately, this problem requires a rebuild or replacement of the transmission. The same thing happened to me about a month ago with my 97 Blazer. It cost me $1200.00 for a local transmission shop to rebuild mine.
"
The "sun shell" connects the reverse input drum to the sun gear. The 2/4 band wraps around the reverse drum. When the reverse clutches are applied the sun shell spins the sun gear. When the 2/4 band is applied the sun shell holds the sun gear from spinning. This is why when it breaks you lose reverse, second and fourth"

Just check the transmission oil levels first, if they are low this will stop it from engaging into gear.

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?

These transmissions are computer controlled, and this sounds like you have electronic problems coupled with mechanical transmission problems. I suggest you consult a transmission specialist to diagnose your problems.
