Remove the battery cable & see if it will relearn the shift points

I doubt a 1992 even has that capability,you may have a failed trans

    First, how many miles is on it? Has the trans been rebuilt? I had a similar problem. When I changed my filter I noticed a lot of metal debris stuck to the magnet in the pan. Try starting it and unhooking the throttle cable. Then by hand rapidly push the cable in and out. reconnect and take it for a short spin and see if that helps. If so something internally is creating metal shavings. Hope this works for ya.

SOURCE: Blazer transmission not shifting properly beetween 1 and 2

Your going to have to get the ECM scanned, Auto Zone scan's for free and most garage now will scan for $10.00 to $15.00 since they all have the scanners now and need the business.
You could have a Vehicle Velocity Sensor (V V S)  going bad or the wire harness it self. The V.V.S tells the ECM how fast the drive shaft is rotating and calculate's what gear it should be in relative with the engine speed and throttle position, and transmission fluid pressure.
Regardless you need the Blazer scanned to pin point why your transmission is shifting the way it is. Could be as simple as time for transmission oil and filter change for $125.00 or a loose wire harness.
Check your transmission fluid and try not to run the blazer to hard, to replace the transmission start at $1,900.00 for a rebuilt.
Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted

I just purchased it today. The RPM's goes up to 4


You'll want to doublecheck & make sure the Overdrive is turned on. That's a high rpm for 55, even high I believe for Interstate cruising at 65-70.

Possibly get back to the dealer immediately if it's not the Overdrive switch.

There are issues with some models that concern the RPM staying around 4,000 even at idle & under the right circumstances, a transmission won't shift as it should based upon engine & driving signals that the Trans computer uses to determine when to shift.

Check your fluid first & remember, Overdrive doesn't work until the fluid reaches a certain temperature.

good luck

Shifting gears


I'll assume you mean 6000 rpm's. No that is not normal. Should shift smoothly anytime after 2700 rpm's.

Automatic transmission< while in drive wont shift


change your transmission filter: no or, very little movement and, no shifting indicates a clogged hydrolic circuit
do not continue to drive your car at that rpm until you fix this as engine damage can occur

89 jeep shifting at high rpm never hits over drive


Check to make sure that you somehow did not disconnect or move any linkage that goes from the carburetor (or injection air inlet if you have f/i) to the transmission. on many vehicles this linkage controls internal trans pressure and can influence shift points and application harshness. Your post indicates that you were sleeping when you changed the filter...Don't work on cars unless you are awake!!!
PS: If you have f/i, you would have to be underneath the car...did you somehow cut a wire or catch trans linkage when lifting it?
