Sounds like the filter is not on,or up

The first and easiest thing to check on your 97 blazer is the trans fluid. Did you make sure you added new fluid when you dropped the pan and replaced the filter.(assuming this from problem discription) May need to drop trans pan again and make sure filter didn't fall off into bottom of pan.(from "old sleeve"you didn't replace) I would start the vehicle, and run till normal operating temp and check fluid and go from there. Good luck, best regards.

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

1997 Chevy blazer not shifting

This sounds like a wiring issue, check and make sure the transmission connector is ok, no broken locks on hard shell or bent pins.
