You need to have the tranny service. If it is a longtime the fluid could be too old to do it's job.

What is causing transmission to only work in 2nd and 3rd and reverse.? in 2nd and 3rd it feels like its trying to downshift into 1st. In 1st there is a little resistance but it doesnt move


How does your transmission fluid look and smell? If it is dark and smells a little burnt, the transmission is very likely toast. If it is still clear and red, you should let a transmission specialist diagnose it.

What could my problem transmission only moves when I shift it through 1st,2nd, and 3rd


Valve body. You have a sticking valve. When you manually shift it into first, you force the sticking valve to move(pressure). There could be a couple other problems, But they are still in the valve body.

2007 Chevy Avalanche 3rd and 4th gear are not working


From what you are describing, it is possible either the 3-4 actuator is no longer playing with the 3rd & 4th clutch packs, only way to know for certain is to hook up the good ol' pressure gauge to trans. system, yeah, you think the Chevrolet dealer should know this right?

Sell it now if you can!

I have a 96 sl1. I only have 1st,3rd and 5th gear. If I try 2nd 4th and Reverse, it's like they aren't even there. Is it my linkage cable? And should I get a new transmission?


This does sound more like a bad cable. You'll need to find the shift tower on the transmission and have someone move the shift so you can see if it moves when trying to put it in the bottom gears.

1996 gmc jimmy won`t shift from 1st to 2nd


IF the abs dash light is on and if the speedometer is sluggish or not working at all, it is probably a bad speed sensor on the transmission. and easy fix under $40 for the part. Mine was stuck in second gear for a while then worked then it stuck in first gear and i had the CHECK ENGINE light on.

The car wont move in any gear. not 1st , 2nd, 3rd, rev or overdrive. is there a wire to the tranny that you can disconnect and put back on to reset it


No, you have a major problem.Try unplugging the round plug to the trans in the top of the side cover.(below the throttle body) and see if the transmission will move in drive.
