Question about 2003 GMC Envoy Xl
It is not stuck in passing gear, it is defaulted to 2nd gear because the trans is detecting a problem. Hopefully it is just one of the solenoids, but unless you have experience with the trans I would not recommend trying to fix it. I also would not take it to the dealer, they will try to sell you a trans when all my may need is a solenoid. Ask around for a shop the specializes in transmissions, but is also honest. It will take someone who knows what they are doing to do this.
Hope you find someone.
