You might want to try this if its got a kick down cable unhook it from throutle body and pull it out as far as you can and let it snap back, do this a few of times, sometimes a valve gets hung up inside valve body of trans. and won't let it shift. If that don't help you may have to pull pan to dislodge it if thats the problem. chk. the plug on trans. (Its a 4 wire white plug) with test light with key on to see if there is power down there one will be hot, thats for overdrive, now on top of intake in front throutle body there is a sending unit that looks like a temp. sending unit with a 2 wire plug on it that sends a signial down to that plug when engine gets to temp. to let it shift to overdrive. Maybe this will help, or give you some ideas.

Purchase a gear shift repair kit for your car. They are pretty cheap. About 20 bucs. The ball and bushings are probably worn.

The more I learn about these solenoids, the more we can say that these trans shops may have lied to us from the start in stating the need for rebuilds...

Read up on all the different easily replaceable solenoids in the trans...

SHIFT Solenoids,
Kick Downs,
TCC,
And a few others...

If you don't normally get the trans service done on your truck, it will be more prone to damage...

So spend the money in preventative maintenance than to suffer from these headaches and then still spending money to have it repaired, and taken for thousands instead of just barely a $100 bucks worth of solenoids...

Transmission wont shift out 1st gear


The shift solenoid for going into 2nd or 3rd gear is likely bad. May require a rebuild to rectify the problem.

Sure sounds like a slipping transmission to me. When is the last time you changed the transmission fluid? Before you go dumping $2,600 for a new transmission, I'd do a transmission fluid change first. If you do change the fluid, use Dextron 6, it's GM's new transmission fluid, much better than the fluid you have now. Not to scare you, but my transmission went out at about 100k miles, so you're doing good if it hasn't been rebuilt yet.

either the transmission bands need to be adjusted or the solenoid is bad and needs to be replaced. The first thing would be to change tranny fluid and filter.

you need to have a code reader hooked up to your truck, some major parts stores can do this for you,be sure to write down the codes they find, and ask them to clear the code memory. you may have a sensor in the transmission that has failed, the diagnostic codes will give an indication of what part has failed
