First, check the transmission fluid level and condition. If you don't know how to do it, here is an illustration:
How to check the automatic fluid
With the engine idling and transmission in "Park" (some car may have different procedure, refer to the owner's manual) remove the automatic transmission dipstick and wipe it out with the clean lint-free cloth. Insert the dipstick back fully and then pull it out again. Check the fluid level; low level may indicate a transmission leak. Look at the fluid very closely. It helps if you drip the fluid onto a white paper to be able to see the fluid condition. The transmission fluid should be clean and transparent, without any metal filings or black flakes. The new fluid usually comes red. Over the time, it become more brownish, but it shouldn't be very dirty or black. Look at the image. Try to smell the transmission fluid; It should not have a burnt smell.
All this may seem difficult, but when you check few similar cars, you'll be able to see the difference. If the transmission fluid is too dirty or black, or smells burnt, it's better to avoid such a car.
Keep in mind, however, that some modern cars don't have the transmission dipstick and require special procedure performed in the auto repair shop to check the fluid level. In this case, the only way to check the transmission is on test drive.

Those are your transmission cooling lines. Buy them and replace them.
When you install them, take your time...don't be in a rush.

Try unplugging the electrical connection on the transmission to lock it in 3rd. It might get you moving. Although the transmission is going to need rebuilt or replaced.

Are you saying you put in a new but used tranny and it still dosent go out of first gear? Or are you saying you replaced a tranny line? If its the tranny you replace and first is the only gear you may not have adjusted the shifting linkage correctly. Put the truck in park and loosen the linkage on the tranny and slidr the rod on the tranny back and retigten and try that
