Typical sign of the transmission is in need of repair, GM trannys are well known for acting like yours, it will hold first gear and shift to second at about 40 mph, if you let off the gas, it feels like neutral (no engine braking) it will get worse, I tried changing the filter and solinoids, after a $150 I still had the same problem, I found a rebuilt with w two year warranty ($700) and it's been great. Of course I installed it myself.

1985 toyota motor home. 4 cyl. 22re engine. goes slowly into reverse when transmission is cold, but when it warms up, it wont go into reverse. If I give it more gas, it will sometimes catch briefly, but...


Change the fluid and filter. If i remember correctly reverse and third gear share the same band and clutch pack. Some transmissions you could tighten the band on it.

96 gmc safari only goes into 2nd gear if i ease off the gas


Does reverse and 4th work? Do you have to back off for it to shift into 4th? 2nd and 4th use the same band to apply.

1995 cadilac deville has problem shifting from 1 to 2 gear


You don't have torque converter shudder. You don't even mention that in your original post! You def had a solenoid issue. My 94 STS did the same thing. I only had reverse, 1st and 2nd gear. Wouldn't shift outa 2nd period. It was a $200 solenoid repair. Car had a 160K on it when that happened. I have almost 170k on it now. Shifts and works fine. you don't need the tranny replaces ad josavv63 indicates.
