I think changing the filter might take care of the problem for awhile.

try filling the truck with 93/94 octane for 1 or two tanks. i had the exact same problem whenever the truck tried to auto shift down. while USING CRUISE CONTROL, , as i started up the highway incline at 70 mph and the speed started slowing down, when the truck rpms at 2k didnt match up with the over drive speed it tried to shift out of overdrive, the truck started sputtering like it was running on 4 cylinders, or loss of compression the service engine light comes on, etc etc.
next week i only used 93 octane, and octane boost (once) to clean out the engine. It worked,
same highway, the truck slowed to 65 on the same hill while in cruise control. It made the hill at 65 without any problems.
if the truck is not in OD it doesnt seem to happen. ANy way. its a defect with the truck, but its a cheap fix.
#374 of 384 2003 Chevy Blazer Tranny Problems
Jan 06, 2013 (7:24 pm)
I have a 2003 Chevy Blazer 4dr LS 4X4. I am the 2nd owner and knew the 1st owners, an elderly couple that lived next door. I bought it in 2006 with 33,000 miles on it and have owned it for the last 7 years. Last year, my transmission went out with no warning, just slipped a couple of times, and poof, I suddenly lost my D & 3 gears, but still had R, 2, &1. I was in a rural area when it went, so by the time I got anywhere near civilization, you could definitley smell it burning. At the time, it had 117,000 miles, so I thought that it had earned the right to go. However, was a little disappointed that it didnt last longer, considering I've had the local GM dealership doing all maintenance on it as did the last owners! Since it had that many miles and due to age and limited budget, I purchased a salvaged transmission with a 1 year warrenty. All went well for 13 months, then again, in the middle of no-where, the vehicle starts doing its familiar "missing" which was actually the tranny slipping. Again, sure enough, this transmission as well as the first, both burnt up with little to no warning at 130,000 miles. I again, due to budget, mileage, and age went with another salvage tranny, and it immediately slipped and burnt up at 135,000. Keep in mind, I do no towing with vehicle, it is driven around my little city and I am single, so there is no hauling of anything but me. I am now on tranny #4 and would like to try and figure out why these trannys keep burning up. A friend of mine told me that the radiator on some vehicles help aid in cooling the transmissions. I dont know if its true, but it kindof makes sense to me, because mine always has smelled like "hot" antifreeze everytime a tranny has went. I also have always checked fluids in the vehilce regularly. They are always full and the color they should be, no leaks have been noticed or found, as it it always parked on pavement. Any words of advice????

This is just an educated guess but it might be your filter getting plugged up from debris from clutch wear in the oil pan, try changing the filter, you might get more life out of the transmission that way. Is it too late to get out of the purchase or have them repair it? If there is debris in the pan most transmission shops will try to sell you a rebuild and it probably needs it but just changing the filter might give you a working trans for many years. a fresh rebuild could improve your gas mileage depending on how bad it is slipping.

Well, the filter was my only suggestion, I looked at some forums after replying to your message and there was talk of solenoids there, was there much sediment in your oil pan?
