2006 GMC Envoy Denali w/5.3 liter 4x4 auto transmission 153k - No 2nd gear

2006 GMC Envoy Denali w/5.3 liter 4x4 auto transmission 153k miles. There are no service lights on and there are no codes available. The transmission acts like there is no 2nd gear. The car will shift from 1st gear into what I believe is 3rd gear when the car is traveling fast enough ~30/35 mph and then shifts normally into 4th/overdrive. Prior to the total loss of 2nd gear, if you accelerated hard, occasionally the truck would slam into second gear where it almost felt like the tires would break loose (peel out). If memory serves correctly, I would also hear a whistle or screech when this scenario occurred. I replaced the transmission filter and fluid but this had no effect. Any suggestions to try before I have to replace the entire transmission?

SOURCE: hard shift and blinking overdrive

The blinking overdrive button is telling u that a serious fault has occurred in the electronic controls or a mechanical fault such as excess slippage is occurring.

SOURCE: slight miss in engine, hard shift from 1st to 2nd long 2nd gear

Check both O2 sensor(s) and catalytic coverter.. P0420 means catalyst below threshold. Also check the sensor at the transmission and solenoid.

Sure sounds like a slipping transmission to me. When is the last time you changed the transmission fluid? Before you go dumping $2,600 for a new transmission, I'd do a transmission fluid change first. If you do change the fluid, use Dextron 6, it's GM's new transmission fluid, much better than the fluid you have now. Not to scare you, but my transmission went out at about 100k miles, so you're doing good if it hasn't been rebuilt yet.

No it is not normal to lose two quarts,Have you seen any oil spots on the ground where you park your Envoy,
take a look under your Envoy to see if you have a small leak and the air from driving it is blowing the oil back towards transmission.
