Question about 2001 Chevrolet Blazer
The term 'Rear End' when used with a vehicle, is a slang term for Rear Differential. Your engine turns the transmission, which in turn turns a driveshaft, finally turning the rear differential. The gears inside the differential turn axles, and your rear wheels are connected to these axles.
These two link explain the basics of a differential,
The rear differential, has Nothing to do with why your transmission won't shift. Manual or Automatic. I suggest you find a competent shop, and leave That One Alone!

STOP!!! This is a common problem with the blazer. It is not the same with the reverse going out which is also a regular issue, but if you had any other warning lights come on such as the anti-lock brake light it isn't the tranny. It is the control modual.
Disconnect the battery for at least 10 seconds. Reconnect the battery and test drive to see if that fixed the problem. If so it is the CPU (central Proccessing Unit) AKA the computer. It is the black box located over the front wheel well on the passenger side, on top, and near the firewall. It may never happen again or you may need to replace it soon. Start looking in a junk yard for another one. You will save hundreds of dollars getting one from a bone yard.

That is a sign of needing a second opinion as the rear diffriential, which is what the rear tires are connected to, has no bearing on gear shifting.
