I have 3 possible remedies for you.
1. You can try and add a can of "Trans X". I get mine at WalMart for about $6.00
2. If option 1 does not work you may need to have the valve body and solenoids replaced. If you do this also replace the wire harness in the trans.
Before you do option #2 take it to a place like Auto Zone and have them read the codes for you. They do it for free. The codes they pull will tell you if it is the shift solenoids.
3. You will need to get the trans rebuilt or replaced.

I have a 2000 GMC Jimmy that wont shift out of first or second gear and the speedometer quit working as well. When the speedometer works it will shift into all gears fine.

It sounds to me like you have a speed sensor problem. The ECM need the speed sensor input to tell the tranny to shift since it is electronic. It might be as simple as a loose wire. Get your mechanic to check the sensor and wiring for you speedometer.

Hi, my brother in law just gave me his blazer that have a funny problem:
When the engine is cold and I shift it in reverse the tranny engage for a second or two then the engine would torque 'till its bangs the mounts then stall.
when warm the tranny would shift in reverse with no problems and trough any gears
when hot the tranny would shift only in first trough 3rd gear and when on neutral or park I can hear a clicking noise and would not shift in reverse at all
the trruck has 413 000km and the tranny was rebuilt at 375 000km the engine has been rebuilt also around the same km by the previous owner
any help would be really apreciated

update the shift solenoids are all busted and they're pricey so I'll go in a junk yard near my place and will disassemble a couple of tranny's to get some spare solenoids to fix it

I've been having issues with the transmission in my 4 door blazer since I bought it 2 years ago. At first it was shifting hard from 1st to 2nd, that seems to have stopped but now it slips out of gear and wont back up until the engine is warm. I dont want to fix the problem, I just want to know if theres a way to put a 5 speed manual in it. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

#282 of 384 2001 Blazer ZR1 Trans Shifting Problem
Jan 04, 2011 (4:00 pm)
I have a 2001 Chevy Blazer ZR1 4wd that will not shift into passing gear. When the trans tries to shift the RPMs shoot up and it is like being placed in neutral. Once the speed drops to app 40 mph it is in gear and then the problem starts over again.
Any and all help appreciated.
