2001 chevy blazer not shifting right

My 2001 chevy blazer will not shift untill high rpms or sometimes you have to let off the gas in order for it to shift into the next gear it's a 4.3 and shifts into 1st and reverse just fine when it shifts it is nice and smooth but seems to shift whenever it feels like it. Any advice?

Check the oil if you haven't already. If that makes no difference, change the tranny oil and filter. It can make a world of difference. Another thing it could be is your fuel filter. The engine is starving for gas, and can't shift properly.

Idoling at 1500 to 2000 rpms and shifting at 3500 to 4000 rpms

Check your manifold vacuum. The 4.3L are notorious for loosing manifold vacuum and leaking just beneath the AC unit. Use a vacuum gauge to see how much vacuum you have at the manifold. Low vacuum can cause high idle conditions.
