    yep it is a three speed trans. the funny thing is, when the car has not been run for a day and then you drive it, it works ok for about 5 blocks and then what happens is that you have to then get going real fast and it will finally shift into a higher gfear, but the not final overdrive. Any ideas?

Do you know if you have a 3 speed trans or a 4 speed trans? If it is a 4 speed , the (D) on the shift indicator will have a box around it. I need to know which transmission you have, then I can help.

    If it did it all of a sudden and never had a problem with 2nd I would say you likely have a bad governor valve. Have you checked the downshift cable to make sure it is stuck in the pulled position. The only other I can think of to try is adjusting the intermediate band. If neither of these work then you will have to pull the pan and valve body to check the governor and to see if the intermediate band is broken. I can't remember if the intermediate band adjustment is on the outside or the inside but I will look it up and repost.

Why wont my 97 plymouth grand voyager shift into fourth gear at 40 mph?

Sticking valves. When is the last time you had the transmission serviced? Since it will shift when cold, I would suspect a valve body issue.

Just rebuilt and wont shift. stays in first gear

Take it back to the rebuilders . This could be several different things that are not cheap. (eg. shift solenoid,manual shift valve , transmission range sensor, oil pump not building enough pressure to shift) Hopefully its still under warranty.
