If it is a manual it could be the shifter forks or compression plate. If it is an automatic, it may be the clutch material in it is degrading too fast and you have nothing left to shift it. I would recommend you take it in to a tranny shop. If you want a challenge you can always rebuild it yourself but I would not do that unless you are willing to spend some time doing it and willing to take pictures of where the parts go.

Why does a 2007 dodge caravan transmission stay in first 1st gear after spinning on ice. Once the trouble codes are cleared the transmission works fine ok

the sensors recognise the wheel spin and compensate by shifting into 1st gear which should maximise traction as wheel spinning at a higher speed can cause loss of control

My turbo 400 stuck in 1st, will not shift.

only you know what you didn't do right
for it not to shift is a valve body spool or solenoid problem
could be a spring not fitted , wiring or any number of things
manuals are good if you are a transmission trained person but if you are not and are using the book as a guide , they do not include ricks of the trade
so transmission manuals have a trouble shooting guide that will help
ask a transmission shop for advice as you can explain what was done

Infiniti I 35 2004 transmission trouble. Can I drive 8 hrs home. High pressure from 1st to 2nd. Really hard shift but only from 1st to 2nd otherwise everything runs fine. Advice plz

8 Hours driving is a long time to run a faulty gear box . If it is manual then bearings will be failed before you get home and that is replacement box. If automatic then the problem is probably the transmission control module an who knows when that will fail completely and you will have no gears . I would advise against driving it long distances until you have the problem diagnosed by an transmission shop as it may cost you more money than just the fare on a bus or train alone to get home while the repairs are being done.

Automatic Transmission shifts late and rough after warm

If it has over 60000 miles it may need a transmission service, which includes a filter and fluid change, fluid may look fine but if filter is clogged and not picking up fluid fast enough when u give it gas the pump spins faster and forces fluid thru to shift, more fluid is needed to shift into higher gear.than to drive
