1989 Chevy Full Size 4x4 Blazer won't go past 1st gear, then revs up, also leaking very little transmission fluid, what can be wrong?

Asked by Oct 09, 2012 at 03:33 PM about the 1989 Chevrolet Blazer

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Transmission does not go past first gear then sounds very accelerated at about 20mph I can let go of accelerator just a bit and it goes in to gear at about 17-18 mph.  I noticed it was leaking very little trans. fluid.  The fluid was low because I put in 4 quarts of fluid.  Blazer doesn't make any other noises either.  What can cause this?

Many things like the gears in the transmission could be going

There is an electric plug that goes in the side of your transmission. I had the same problem after having some electrical work done. Mine was unplugged. Plug it back in and you should be able to shift through all gears now.
