1988 Chevrolet K1500, 4x4, Auto transmition will not shift into 3rd, or higher

1988 Chevrolet K1500, 4x4, Automatic transmition will not shift into 3rd, or higher. We cleaned transmition and torch converter then used Lucius treated, changed oil and filters twice, with no result. Also tried pounding on transmition with rubber mallit to loosen up a ball bearing. Any ideas, beside put another transmition in.

Transmition has a had time shifting is automatic


the mechanic should check the shifting gear and the shifting lever or the shift level and also the gear sleeve. Gear sleeve is the one that make the gear function. And lastly don't forget the transmission sensor because sometimes the problem can be found in the sensor .Then try to check the 1st. gear, 2nd gear,3rd gear,N ,R.of the trans mission to be sure .
