What would cause my transmission to not shift past 3rd gear?

Asked by Jul 14, 2016 at 01:44 PM about the 2001 Chevrolet Blazer 4 Door LT 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Blazer drove fine earlier in the day. Then I went to leave and when I put it in
gear it jerked, then going down the road it wouldn't shift past 3rd gear. Also the
transmission fluid now looks like it is over full and burnt.

If you smell the transmission fluid and it smells burnt,your bands in the transmission are bad,you will need to have the tranny repaired or replaced.Sorry no quick fix for this.
