1998 Chevy k1500, rebuilt transmission won't shift up from first

I bought the truck knowing it needed a transmission rebuild so I had it rebuilt with corvette internals. It ran good for about a month after I put it in and now it won't shift up from first not even manually on the column. What would cause it not to shift, my tranny guy said he thinks it's the computer not telling it to shift like it is in limp mode but I don't know how to diagnose to see what I need to do. It doesn't kick any codes because it has been disconnected somewhere under the dash or has a blown fuse prior to me getting it, any help would be much appreciated

Your transmission is slipping is my guess, it is really the only explanation. The only fix is to remove the transmission and rebuild it or replace it with a factory rebuilt unit.

My ford F150 won't shift from 2nd to 3rd. Does anyone know what could be the issue?


Usually the transmission needs to be rebuilt in that situation. It's a very common problem if that's the famous automatic overdrive transmsission. AOD I have had three trucks that have done that. It usually starts by shuttering when it shifts and than finally goes out. Sometimes the Lucas transmission treatment gives you a little more time, but it sounds too late for yours. From what I understand (mechanic told me) that when the overdrive goes out, it takes third gear with it. If you drive in hilly areas, that overdrive is shifting in and out all the time as you go up and down hills and wears it out. My Dad had that hapen on his F150 and he replaced his transmission with a junk yard transmission that turned out to have the same problem. I had that transmission replaced with a Jasper rebuilt and it worked great. I think it was $1300 for the rebuilt trans with the old one core trade in. I think when 3rd gear goes out, you can only go about 45mph without over reving the engine. I saw that same problem with a Ford Crown vic with that same transmission and 302 engine that my neighbor had.
Did your third gear just go out all of a sudden or were you getting like a shuttering or kind of a grinding sound when it shifted?

Transmission shifts in and out and speedometer goes up and down in a 1998 Chevrolet pickup with an 4L60E transmission.


Do you mean that the trani is slipping? If so you may be low on trani fluid, may have a clogged trani filter or need a rebuild or new one.
If you mean something else then let me know.

I never trust rebuilt trannies unless i rebuild them myslef....Beefing up valve bodies sometime leads to premature wear and tear...the kit could be malfuctioning aswell. Chefck fluids and replace the filter in it, if that doesnt fix it, then take it back to the tech, and demand free service :)
