1999 Chevy Blazer 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 130000 miles
I recently lost the ability to shift into drive and overdrive. The transmission works fine from a stopped position, until it goes to shift into drive. It acts as though that gear doesn't exist. I had to drive it about 15 miles back home in 3rd, and upon returning home the fluid smelled very hot. Am I going to need a new transmission? Thank for the time. I have only put about 30k miles on this vehicle. The engine was replaced when I purchased it with a new crate motor. I have not changed the transmission filter since I have owned it. This problem also seemed to start at the same time as I had to replace the Throttle Position Sensor due to a engine code.
