Hi there:
Check fluid levels and maintenance time. Sound like a torque converter or valve body internal solenoids problem.

Also scanned the transmission module, to search codes in order to know exactly if you have some fault code stored there.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day

SOURCE: isuzu trooper stuck in 1st gear

Likely the forks on the shift rail inside the trans are sliding on the shaft or are worn. I believe your unit needs to be removed to check this.

SOURCE: first gear drives fine but

If the solenoids are all new and the problem persists, I would look at what controls the solenoids. The Powertrain Control Module energizes the shift solenoids based on information it receives from various sensors, ie. speed sensor, throttle position sensor. Turn your attention to these items and away from what has already been repaired. The only other solution is, the transmission is bad.

SOURCE: transmission stuck in 1st gear on a 87 camaro

If the moudulator (vacuum controlled) is bad it will stay in low,Not sure what tranny,but if it has a vacuum line going to it ,start there,if you pull the vac. line off and fluid drips out ,it's bad.
If a 700r 4 speed ,Pull the cover for the governor (should have a wire clip over it,like a master cyl clip ,kinda) It's just pressed into the housing. A small amount of fluid will leak out. Just grab the governor by the end and pull it out ,The gear on the end is plactic,if it's "applecored" the governor can't work. I've replaced mine a few times.
Oh yea ,check the kickdown cable first,make sure ,if you pull on it ,you can feel the spring pressure aginst it as you get to the end.

Clutch


Could be, or the clutch disc. First gear and reverse do not have syncro gears, the others do. So the transmission and engine have to be "disconnected" to allow shifting into first and reverse.

My 2004 chevy cavalier won't start it is stuck in


Your shifter cable sounds like it separated from the transmission or shifter or just broke. you are probably stuck in a moving gear so the neutral safety switch is disabling the ignition.

Transmission won't shift out of 1st gear


You will have to check the valve assembly- the part in your transmission that controls the gear shifting. In this model of transmission it's purely hydraulic so most likely one of the pressure release valves is stuck.
This is an very complex job that must be done only by an experienced mechanic. So either locate a repair shop specialized in transmissions or replace the entire transmission with a good second-hand one.
