Question about 1994 Chevrolet K1500
I have a 1994 chevy k1500, 4x4, 4 speed auto.transmission wont shift out of 2nd gear. shifts fine from 1st to 2nd! What do i need to do?
Your transmission may be gone. The condition of the fluid and mileage would help in determining your solution. Another suggestion is a scan test with OBD II (auto zone free) and see if possibly your shift solenoids have stopped functioning. This is a electronic controlled transmission being a 1994. They all went electronic at the beginning of 1992. Mileage rule of thumb is they are on borrowed time after 120,000. I always try to save them if i can. So first scan test get any codes even if your check engine or service soon light is not on. Only because i have found codes even with those lights off. If no codes present then drop pan of trans, if no metal but fine powder like material its your clutches. Overhaul time. Be careful should run about 1800.00 at the most, 1200.00 at the least being a 4wd i hope this helps.

Had a similar problem with same model pickup but would shift into third only after reaching high RPM in second @5000. There was TSB that came out about this a few years ago. I had to replace the valve body in the transmission to fix the problem and worked perfectly after that. Hope this helps!
