I'm not really an expert however mine did that right after I rebuilt it and I just adjusted the bands a little and replaced the speed sensor and it's fine now.

If it was working fine up to the time you had it rebuilt and you had it rebuilt then I would make them fix the problem. Sounds like it could be a shift linkage problem or shift solenoid inside of the transmission.

1995 blazer 4l60e trans just rebuilt. Hard 1-2

Sounds like full pressure apply from pcm. Must check for full 12v at trans connector. Also check all ground twice. That is a hard trans to install and things tend to get left loose.

Tranny wont shift to 3 or 4 gear

when is the last time you had the fluid changed? the fluid and filter is supposed to be changed in automatic transmissions every 12,000 - 14,000 miles. it may be something simple but if you don't have an error message or OBDII code to go along with your problems then more than likely its either the filter and fluid or it may also be about time to have the transmission rebuilt. Before the transmission is too far gone you'll see a check engine light that will come on with a code for not shifting properly or slipping. once you see that i would take it to a reputable shop to have it rebuilt before it gives you major trouble or leaves you sitting.

1500 automatic bought from guy says trans was rebuilt shifts ok but when you tromp it sometimes its kicks down goes like hell then tranny slips I backoff and it is fine

I would recommend that you drop the pan and change the fluid and filter, and in place of a quart of transmission fluid, I would run some Lucas transmission oil/fluid that is specifically designed to free up a sticky valve body, and eliminate slipping.

93 chevy 1500 4wd trans. shift problems.

See if the tranny has an exterior modulator valve. If so remove the vacuum line and see if there is tranny fluid in the line. It will be located on the pasenger side rear of the tranny. What's happening is the engine is sucking tranny fluid through the vacuum line directly into the intake and it doesn't burn well.

Wont shift out of second

When it shifts to third does it just feel like neutral? If yes it will need rebuilt again, you hurt the 3/4 clutch.
