Alot of times the transmission will have a valve stuck in the valvebody. After sitting the fluid which is the lubricator drains to the pan causing the valve to take on moisture or just particals of trash from the clutches. Now would be a good time to service the filter and use an additive to help lubricate these stuck valves. While doing this you can tap on the valve body and try to free anything up. Lucus has some pretty nice additives. I hope this helps. By the way you should have a 7oor4 transmission.

4L60E Transmission wont shift into 2nd or Overdrive


Check the fluid level. You may want to consider having the transmission flushed. (I recommend BG Products flush system.) Properly flushing the trans removes any varnish the may have built up causing erratic behavior.

Check your transmission sensors with a network diagnostics. These are often to go bad, they also play a big role when it comes to shifting properly.

Transmission won't shift fron 1st, 2nd or 3rd correctly!


Sorry to inform you that it sounds like your transmission needs servicing.
Check the fluid levels and replenish if level is down.
If after doing this,the car still wont shift properly or smoothly,,then you will have to take the car into a transmission mechanic.
