this may be due to a poor connection at the vehicle speed sensor on the transmission, pull the connector off the sensor and clean it with contact cleaner, if the problem persists replace the speed sensor. there are 2 diff ones here is a picture of the most common one for an auto trans.3deea43.jpg

Adjust the neutral safety switch (if I remember correctly it's behind the shift arm on the transmission on yours.) Switch also sets point where trigger for starter operates so make sure both are working when you have moved the switch. If you can't get both to work properly, switch is worn and needs replacement.

The 1985 GMC Sierra transmission is a th700R4 overdrive transmission. The 700R4 does not utilize a vacuum modulator. Shift points are controlled by the T.P. or kickdown cabe. Proper adjustment of this cable is critical to transmission longevity. Your Pontiac, if originally equipped with a th400 transmission, has no means to connect this cable to the carburetor. I would not recommend this transmission swap. Also the th400 and the 700R4 use different sized drive shaft yokes, so your drive shaft cannot be used.

Transmission will not shift out of first gear.

Check the vacuum line going to the shift module on the drivers side of the transmission. If theres a vacuum leak there, the transmission will either shift very hard or not at all.
