If you have a lot of miles on the car the transmission may be starting to shell. I would find a good transmission additive use that for a while it may delay the inevitable. I would not change the fluid you need the old fluid with it viscosity in it. That is why I think a good additive may delay your problems.

When I bought my 98 gmc Sonoma they told me there was a transmission flush it had metal shaving in it

It is possible that the metal shavings are from a part that is failing before ,during and after the flush. Something like a failing torque converter will do this, or failing bearings in the box. A pressure test of the transmission may pinpoint the problem.

Won't shift out of 1st gear. Is there a tranny filter are do I have major problems?

there is a filter inside the transmission, you will need to remove the lower transmission oil pan in order to get access the filter if you find any metal shavings in the oil pan the you probably have a major problem but if no shavings then try a new filter and fluid and put a qt. of transX in when you refill the transmission.

good luck

metal shavings is a good indicator the trany needs rebuilt,( those metal shavings are from drive gears inside of trany)but the only way to know 100% is to take it in. sorry that happened to you....i know that's not the answer you where looking for.

My trany wont go in revers and will not shift forward gears untill u let off the throtle a litle

Could be a need to rebuild transmission, but start with a simple transmission fluid change and filter change. If filter is plugged, could prevent the pressure build up necessary for automatic transmission to engage.

All of this assumes the fluid level is correct.

If you can do yourself, probably less than $20, closer to $100 to $150 at a shop, and they will drop the transmission pan and tell you it needs a $3000 rebuild because of grit in the pan. (all transmissions accumulate grit and fine metal shavings. There is a magnet in the bottom of the pan to attract any small shavings.)

Hi. I hate to say it, but if you have metal shavings in your drain pan you've got some major problems, especially if it slipping and not going into gear. The problem with not going into gear is usually the syncros being worn. I recommend taking the transmission to a transmission shop. They can look at it and some shops you can talk into just fixing the broken/damaged part instead of rebuilding the whole tranny. If you don't want to go that route you can look for a used one, but either way you will have to one or the other VERY soon if you want to keep on rolling.
