4l60e slipping no reverse

i have a 1996 blazer that is not operating right.when engine running the trans has to be put in low and acts like the brakes are on.once moving the trans seems to go to neutral and stops pulling, and there is no reverse it seems to be in neutral . anyone have this problem and can you tell me what you did to fix it.

I doubt seriously that changing the fluid is going to magically fix the problems, but it never hurts to be optimistic.

Dropping the pan will at least allow you to see how much metal, clutch material, bearing material, and/or thrust washer material is in the pan. Once you get the filter out, go ahead and cut it open and look inside.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that you need a trans rebuild, or another transmission to replace the one you have.

Sometimes a broken sunshell will cause a loss of reverse, 2nd & 4th. So, essentially you would only have 1st & 3rd. So sunshell could be a possible culprit. Depending on mileage on the trans, it may also have worn out 3-4 clutches so it would be slipping when it goes into 3rd. Worn 3-4 clutches are the most common cause of failure in these transmissions. Let us know how it turns out.
