Why is my 1994 s10 blazer idling very fast and doesn't seem to want to downshift?

First off is the check engine light on? There could be a few reasons for the fast idle. Vaccuum leak, Idle air control valve are a couple right off the top of my head. With the engine idling (as best as it will anyway) try spraying some carburetor cleaner around the base of the throttle body, any vaccuum lines connected to the manifold, and where the upper and lower intakes bolt together.

When i drive my 99 lincon town car after the last gear the car shakes, a friend told me is a transmition sensor,is tha possible ?

Is the check engine light on ?
If you have a problem with a sensor in the trans or a miss in the engine the check engine light should come on and set a code.
If not, it could be a problem with the drive shaft or other mechanical issue.

2001 ford sport trac put it in drive or reverse and let it idle and it shakes real badlike the motor is about to fall out give it gas and goes away check engine lite not on and no codes found only...

It sounds like you have a bad motor or transmission mount. Open your hood, and have a friend start your vehicle, and put it into drive. Observe the engine to see what is vibrating.

Is there any faults in any modules?
The shaking could misfires codes caused by a sensors, coils packs, spark plugs, bad injectors, loose or leaking vaccuum hoses or even collapsed motor mounts can cause this vibration. So if you can give mor information this can be helpfull. Hope this help you.
