Re: 1996 chavy van 1500 hard shift
Since all gears shift hard, and the transmission is in correctly (i assume) then it will be a linkage or spring type of problem in the shift mechanism or hook up to the trans. I also assume you have put back all the correct parts.... Last time i r/r a tranny that was like this, i didn't hook up the shift levers right... Rick

charge rate should be 13 to 14 volts, if you below that it is probably a weak alternator. be sure to check all wires and cables to the battery and starter. The starter is part of the charging system an loose connection can make weird stuff happen. As far as shifting check electrical connector to trans. if it is unplugged or bad connection PCM can't tell it when to shift.
