That sounds like a linkage issue, check under at bell housing, if not its the band you need to rebuild the trans.

Auto trans stop changing & no reverse. It never showed any warning signs


It's time for an overhaul. The reaction shell has stripped or broken the splines away and it is these splines that make the necessary connection for 2nd, 4th and reverse. Yes, you probably still have third gear, but have not gone fast enough for it to shift into third.

1999 DODG 3500 AUTO TRANS SHIFTS TO 2ND WITH A LITTLE HELP


I have a 1999 Ram B 1500 Van, auto transmission, 5.9 L engine.
Same problem, trans hesitates in 2-3 upshift, sometimes 1-2
to 2-3 upshift. Posts trouble code P1756 - Transmission Govenor pressure too low at below 15 to 20 Psi. Transmission pump shot or valve body leak stops trans from reaching proper pressure to shift, which is minimum 15 Psi.
Either trans is leaking in valve body, valve is stuck, shift solenoid on valve body is sticking, or pump is shot.

No reverse sometimes geo metro a/t


The accelator cable is "Y" shaped. one side goes to the carb and the other to the tranmission. If you have the carb.side too tight it will give you the problem that you are having.
