Hello;
The brake lockout linkage is out of adjustment. It needs to be adjusted so that the shifter will operate. Hope this helps;

SOURCE: 1997 chevy suburban automatic. has no reverse but

you need a used trans, or a rebuild, but dont let a rebuilder fill you full of ****, all you need is the reverse drum, and possibly some clutches. the teeth on the reverse drum strip off, and thats when you lose reverse.

SOURCE: 1997 chevy camaro. it doesnt shift into 1st or

the transmission is in limp mode, when a problem is seen by the on board computer system like to low line pressure in the transmission the computer puts the unit in limp mode which is 2nd gear and reverse only. this is not good news. you need to have the codes pulled to see what caused the ECM to do this.

I see you have been given advise on the initial issue.
I agree it will need to be overhauled or replaced.
You are now searching for identification.
Ok, here is a transmission pan identification pattern. This is the easiest way.

Trans sticks in 2nd gear


"...he had to put hi foot on the gas pedal several times..." I do not understand what this means, but does it still fine? If it is then you likely had a stuck shift valve, but why is the valve stuck? Is the valve body contaminated as a result of the trans "coming apart". If it is still not shifting out of second gear then you may have a 3-4 clutch problem, which is a very common failure and requires overhaul to correct it.

Put a 1996 4l60e into 97 truck.goes strait to 3rd gear unless man shift.no 4th


The transmission in this truck is electronically controlled through shift solenoids,it also has a number of sensors that the computer control module uses to determine proper times to shift and what is the appropriate gear, so you must have the computer scanned to see if any fault codes related to the transmission are in memory

Transmission wont shift into 3rd gear.


I had this exact problem on my 2005 5.3L Suburban... It would shift into 1 and 2 and reverse, but not 3 and 4.

I took it into a transmission shop, and he said the 3-4 shift solenoid was burned up. Wanted 1500 to fix it. Far from home, so I have to pay it.
