Question about 1992 Ford F150 SuperCab
I have a 1992 f150 with 302 auto/overdrive. Its transmission was rebuilt 5 months ago and switched fine. It has sat for 6 weeks or so (due to my health) and when I went to drive it today, I got it started (the battery was low and I had it recharged at O'Reilly's) and let it warm up before driving it. When I drove off I put it in OD and it never would shift out of first. If I put it in 2nd, then it would drive and stay in 2nd. If I put it back in OD, it would shift back to first and stay in first. What could be wrong, it drove fine last time I drove it and then today, this???
If the shift lever is floppy and not shifting, drop the steering column so the steering wheel is resting
on the seat. you will see on the shift linkage, a pot metal casting....kind of tube shaped, about
a foot long. It is mounted to the top of the steering column. check for a fatigue fracture on that tube.
if you find that it is broken, it's not too bad a job to remove it. will need a screwdriver with
torx head bits, and a 1x4 inch socket.

Could be possible that your TV Linkage (Throttle Valve) has gone out of wack. The cable could be stuck in a way that it's sending the transmission thinking it has you in full throttle thus not letting the transmission shift out of first.
Take it back where it was previously serviced. There should be some kind of service warranty.
