If it shifts from 1st to 3rd gear also, then you need to have it rebuilt.
I lost reverse and 2nd gear in mine and I had it rebuilt.
Works great now and for the low price of only $1600,,,LOL

Okay I have a 1997 Chevy blazer I had a issue with transmission filter and fluid got them change after one day all the sudden it will not kick in to reverse but it will the other gears

Hello Crystal Riggs,

Sorry to hear of your trouble... but...

I all fairness to "them" (the folks that changed your fluid)...

You really ought to DISCLOSE why... AFTER 19 FAITHFUL years of SERVICE... You SUDDENLY DECIDED to SERVICE
your transmission...???

FOLKS generally ignore their transmissions COMPLETELY until they ALREADY have developed a problem... (the real trouble).

SOMETIMES... (quite a lot actually) a fluid change will help...

My first inclination is to tell you to immediately take it back...

And "DISCUS" it with them... To cut them FREE
have the shop demonstrate they used Dextron III and Flushed the cooler... as is FACTORY REQUIREMENT...
(repeated bulletins).

Give them a chance to do their work correctly.

What is transmission fluid capacity?

If you are just changing the fluid and filter, it should be around 5 quarts. The entire transmission holds about 12 - 15 quarts counting the torque converter.
It should tell you the actual amount depending on which trams you have in the owners manual.

My 1997 chevy blazer automatic transmission wont go forward and reverse

See what code the transmission has set, and get that info posted. It's just barely possible that you can fix it yourself, but not likely. If the transmission has grenaded, it will have set a few error codes which will not necessarily be correct in the computer's assessment of the problem. If you know how to change the fluid and filter, do that when you check the codes. If there is metal in the transmission pan, the transmission will have to be rebuilt.
