Can the TCCM on a 96 blazer 4.3 cause transmission to not shift properly from 2nd into drive and overdrive

It sounds like when you accelerate it downshifts and acts like it is in neutral, when you let off, it shifts back to coast like it is in drive. I would question shift solenoid first. I know this is what 1-2 shift solenoid can act like if you have no low 1 and starts in low 2 or 2nd. There are two solenoids, 1-2nd and 2-3rd. You can drop pan and change them easy.

I have a 96 dodge conversion van it won't shift

Bands are adjusted when you first rebuild a unit
& don't wear enough to need readjusting

Most likely time to rebuild it

If that is original, you have gone 17 years,most
don't make 120,000 or ten years

Where is the shift solenoid in a 96 oldsmobile regency

There are normally several shift solinoids 1st 2nd, 3rd 4th. one solinoid operates 2 gears. They are located inside the gearbox, you will need to remove the sump & determine which one you need to replace.

What is the mechanic referring to when he says my 96 Kia Sephia might have a broken spider gear? When I'm going forward it shifts real smooth into 2nd gear, then it jerks forward & makes a clunking...

I think he's referring to a gear inside the transmission, part of a planetary gear set. The symptoms point twards a transmission problem, a mount cannot cause this.

I have a 96 aurora and every time i drive it wont shift in to 3rd gear

It just won't shift to 3rd or shifts into neutral after 2nd? The 4t80E transmission is known for breaking the bracket that holds the shift solenoids.

96 taurus shifts out of 1st @3200 then gos to2nd only to gos back

Possible solution:

Too many drivers neglect to change trans fluid or filter until trans is trash.
You might try doing that. Remove the oil pan and install a new filter and clean out the pan gook.
It 's a 25% chance you can drive ok again.

96 gmc safari only goes into 2nd gear if i ease off the gas

Does reverse and 4th work? Do you have to back off for it to shift into 4th? 2nd and 4th use the same band to apply.

GrandAm Tranmission shifts hard

I had the same problem in my 2002 grand am GT. After taking it to a transmission shop and them telling me that I had all this stuff wrong with it that was going to cost me about 2700$ I looked elsewhere. I had an Intake Temperature Sensor that had went bad. It was registering on the check engine light after the fact. I changed it and then found out there was a loose wire in the connector. I fixed that and havent had a problem with it since
