It is odd this just happened after a fluid change, but the reason for your problem may likely be caused by a defective govenor valve assembly, govenor shaft,weights or the govenor body is damaged. You have to pull the govenor assembly in order to inspect and repair, and would also require dis-assembly. Unfortunatly, I can not list all the details for this procedure and this is a very involved job. I'm also assuming the fluid level is correct and if the pan was dropped, assembly is correct also.

My silverado's automatic trans. will not change into third or overdrive a mechanic told me it would be best to buy a new GM trans.

Before you buy a new tranny, get a second opinion. It sounds like a stuck or open shift solenoid in the tranny (4L60E hydra-matic). Depending on the year and type of tranny this was a default setting to either only second or only third gear, should some electrical or transmission hydraulic fault occur. Another common problem for that year is a faulty ignition switch at the key cylinder. It will fail and not send power to the tranny (thus not powering up the shift solenoids). The default (or limp home mode) is when both solenoids are commanded off. They will be both commanded off in second gear (even when the tranny is operating normally).

I suspect you have a bent shifting fork, located inside the transmission. Some trannys are easier than others to change out the shifting forks while others are a nightmare , but it is a major job with a lot of steps required to do .As transmissions can be very difficult and are complex I would recommend checking on the price of a used or rebuilt one - or getting an estimate from a tranny shop to fix yours. You can greatly lower the cost by pulling and re - installing the tranny yourself. Make sure the shop you choose has a warranty - it's easy to do this job wrong and mess up the tranny!!!

either the transmission bands need to be adjusted or the solenoid is bad and needs to be replaced. The first thing would be to change tranny fluid and filter.

If your clutch is operating properly, the problem is inside the transmission, either shift forks or lost adjustment on rails. You may have damaged the brass synchro gears by not taking care of this right away. First though, make sure the clutch is releasing, check for internal bypassing ,leaks and slave cylinder operating properly (some slaves are part of throwout bearing and cannot be serviced unless trans is removed)

Jeep erradic in shifting

Check the adjustment on the brake switch. If the brake switch is not seated properly it will engage when hitting bumps and tell the tranny to come out of overdrive.

Bring to tranny shop or repair shop, have it scanned for trouble codes, many electrical parts and solonoids in those trannys, possible it may just be a shift solonoid bad or needs adjustment, much cheaper than replacing tranny. good luck!
