Question about Cars & Trucks
Probably the speed sensor on the transmission. It would cause both problems. You should also have a check engine light with a trouble code for the sensor.

see my comments, not 100% sure that it was the out put speed censor or not, but after reconnecting the wires to a new censor and reconnecting the battery and clearing codes it worked. connection was not clipped may have been loose

Testimonial: "Thank you for your answer. My friend though almost the same about some of what you wrote and I will check it out. Thanks! :)"
SOURCE: I have a 1995 Chevy
check the wiring on top of the transmission. there is an electrical plug for the speed sensor, if it is loose, the veh will not shift correctly. get someone to remove it, reset the wires in the plug and clean the female end of the plug on the transmission. I have the same problem. It jumps from first to 3rd then back and forth then finally stays in 3rd. I pushed the wires in to set them in deeper on the plug and it seems to help.
