nothing can be done other than what your already doing. 3-4 clutches are gone. thats something i seen everyday for 7 years working in a trans shop. only other option besides buying one is a rebuild. sorry.
"...he had to put hi foot on the gas pedal several times..." I do not understand what this means, but does it still fine? If it is then you likely had a stuck shift valve, but why is the valve stuck? Is the valve body contaminated as a result of the trans "coming apart". If it is still not shifting out of second gear then you may have a 3-4 clutch problem, which is a very common failure and requires overhaul to correct it.
THIS TRANS IS IS ELECTRONIC CONTROLED 4L60-E IF YOU HAVE THIS ONE. IF NOT THE OTHER TRANS. HAS A THROTTLE VAVLE CABLE (TV) VAVLE MAYBE STUCK OR CHECK SPEED SENSOR ON TRANS. ON TAIL SHAFT MAYBE CORRODED.SITTING 3YRS. MAYBE VAVLE STUCK IN TRANS.
It sounds like your describing your torque converter and that its staying unlocked. you might want to check your brake light switch/s if they are malfunctioning it could cause your problem. Also possible that your fuel filter and/or CAT might be clogged.
Best thing to do is get the ECM on the jimmy scaned for codes. I believe Auto Zone will scan for free and some transmission shop as long as there honest will scan the ECM too and let you know what you realy need.
The ECM controls the transmission and if there is any conflicts between the transmission or engine the Jimmy will go on a limp mode and your transmission will not shift to OD and may seam to be slipping.
If it is a transmission problem the scan will pick it up, same as to if it's a engine problem.
Good luck and hope this helps, Just trying to save you some money by finding out what is causing the problem.
