You over heated it.
my guess is the tranny TCM found the overheat before
you saw the dash gauge go overheated?
or about 1/2 the time the engine block runs dry of coolant
and the gauge dies. (it cant read AIR)
and then the tranny sensor never lies. it can read hot no matter what.
which engine options
DEAD COLD engine
is the RAD (cap off) full to the top with AF?
AF= anitfreeze.
is it. and is it at 50% mix? ratio? $2 Prestone tool finds this cheap.

Wont start after overhaul torq is at specs good fuel pressure, spark, and timing at tdc new cam and crank position sensors new fuel pump good compression 90lbs. and holding. any ideas?

First thing to check is make sure ALL sensors have been plugged in properly. If there are any items left unplugged it will not start. This will include temp sensors, transmission sensors, speed or tach sensors. Also need to make sure temp sensor is good. GM products will not start if temp sensor is defective.

05 Sierra 4x4 wont shift into OD until it has warmed up for a while, this only happens when there are sub freezing temps, is this a problem, and if so what should i do??

This is normal on newer vehicles. The transmission temperature is monitored and overdrive is held off until the transmission is up to temp. Nothing unusual or wrong with this. My Tundra does the same thing. The trans temp gauge gets to about the 1/4 mark before the overdrive kicks in.

My transmission wont **** into overdrive. 1999 SL2 twin cam. When the engine gets warn it usually goes into overdrive. When it is not into overdrive the tach neddle goes up and down 300 rpm when I push on...

i bet it just started doing this when the weather changed,some transmissions have an internal thermostat and will not go into overdrive until a certain temp when starting from a cold start,you might also want to consider a trans service,hope this helps

Change tranny fluid,now reverse gear not grabing,on flat ground i get some movement,but revs. up,like slipage,...more fld. or less perhaps? any suggestion.95 golf o1m trans.2L.

The 01M needs to be hooked up to a scan tool (VAG 1552) then you'll also need VAG 1924 ATF filler kit or similar.
1) Address word 02- Transmission Electronics
2) Advance to read measuring value blocks -08
3) Select display group -05
4) Observe display field 1 for transmission temperature (must be below 30*C at start)
5) Lift vehicle
6) Place container under trans
7) Bring ATF to test temp (ATF Test temp 35 to 45*C (95 to 113*F)
8) Remove level plug from trans oil pan
9) If ATF drips out of hole when temp is bet 35* - 45*C ATF level is correct and no further action is required. Install new seal and level plug and torque. This completes the ATF check

note: If the ATF drips out the hole by the time the temp reaches 45*C, fill through the filler tube until fluid comes out of the level checking hole.

1993 Chevy Silverado Blazer wont shift into 3rd gear

Check transmission fluid with vehicle up to temp (after driving) and running at idle on level ground. If slightly overfull no problem. Be sure to remove dipstick, wipe clean and reinstall/remove for accurate fluid level check.

Shifting problems

The transmission/computer is designed not to go into overdrive until it reaches a certain temp and I don't remember what the temp is. Mine does same thing and it has 250,000 miles on it. When you start your truck up do you start it and warm up in neutral? The transmission fluid won't flow unless it is. There is know way to force it to shift into overdrive until it warms to the set temp.

Hope this helps
