Check that you have connected correctly the cables for the torque converter solenoid / servo unit as it may not be making good contact after the engine change . Also as the battery was disconnected for a time I would use a scanner to reset the CPU program as the program may be corrupted from the lost battery power.

Are you sure the TV ( trans shift cable at the throttle valve) cable is correctly adjusted?? Without line pressure readings, I can only guess that the D3/Part throttle check ball is missing, if it is a trans problem
If the TV is correct, I am assuming that the TV cable is pulled tight at WOT.
Did you check the throttle (ACCEL) cable to be sure that the carb goes wide open when your accel pedal is on the floor?? This must be done with someone in the car and a second person looking at the carb. Without doing this, you do not know if you have WOT. Without WOT, the trans will not de-tent and shift down.

SOURCE: 2003 chevy silverado will not shift into drive or overdrive.

transmission shift solenoid is stuck open this is a common vehicle issue in automatics and not particular to any make or model vehicle 15 dollar part and arm and leg for labor if taken in

heres an idea to try
take out the transmission filter and replace with new one make sure to take not of any metal debry in trans pan this indicates the trans had sheered its gears down and a trans rebuild is needed
the transfilter needs to be changed at a certain milage interval they can get clogged up
there is a kit you buy for your truck at any parts store
its an easy change hour of time unbolt trans pan unbolt trans filter and put new one in
kit comes with new seals less than an hour you can do it yourself

to overdrive you would feel a difference in shift badley if it was that something to keep in mind

IT IS NOT GOING INTO NEUTRAL. IT HAS LOST THE DIRECT DRIVE CLUTCH PACK INTERNALLY. SOUNDS LIKE IT IS HIGH MILEAGE. IF SO AND YOU CHANGE THE FLUID IT CLEANS UP ALL THE VARNISH IN THE TRANNY AND THE END RESULT IS TRANNY MALFUNCTIONS DEPENDING ON WHAT KIND OF CARE IT HAS HAD IN THE PAST.

How can i find out what's wrong with the transmission in my 99' Chevy Silverado Z71?


Have you checked the fluid level? Plus the color of the fluid. It could just need a transmission fluid & filter change.

1999 chevy lumina doesn't shift into overdrive, why?


If it won't go into overdrive a speed sensor within the transmission may not be sending the shift signal to the transmission. Check fluid levels to make sure that's not causing the problem. Also, check that the fluid is red color and clean.

Transmission probably needs to be serviced at a reputable shop if you want this problem fixed.

Tranny wont shift out of 3 gear it drives fine just wont shift in to overdrive or when you punch it it wont shift down


Is your tow/haul button on? If not, it could be activated erroneously. It'll keep it from shifting into overdrive and locking the torque converter, and also keeps the transmission from shifting more often. If this isn't the issue, then you'll have to look into your computer, as the transmission shifting is controlled by the computer. The transmissions were the weak points on these trucks; only good for max 200000 miles, so if you're getting close, keep that in mind.

99 silverado will not shift into overdrive


have a 1998 K3500 silverado 4x4 with 454 motor and 4L80E transmission. I can not get over 55 or 60 mph. At that speed the transmission down shifts from 4th (OD) to 3rd. The speedometer also drifts from about 50 to 65. If I try to speed up it will down shift to 3rd. I have replaced the VSS on the trasfer case. Is there another speed sensor somewhere? Or could it be the TPS? The truck drives and shift normal up to this point. where should i look next. thanks

'89 f150 4x4 AOD doesn't like overdrive


get the truck where you can service it and have a transmission service done this will include: new fluid and transmission filter
because it sounds as if it has not been changed in awhile open the hood and if the transmission fluid smells cooked change it right away
