I have a 98 cadillac catera and it slips right out of gearb when i have it in drive i have to shift it myself down to first and it goes fine second is also fine but when i put it in 3rd or drive gear...

You are having an ELECTRICAL or SOLENOID problem... Since Manually you are able to get the gears to work properly, then I would be looking at the Electronics and / or the Shift Solenoids (Solenoids FIRST).

Does Shift solenoid A&B control shifting into 5th gear on an automatic transmission?

First check the transmission MIL code , that will tell you if it is the Over Drive lock solenoid mal functioning , Do a tranny oil change with filter ,then replace fifth gear pressure solenoid , when you are there already .

I had a dtc code for 1-2 shift solenoid. I replaced that and the 2-3 shift solenoid put everything back together and the truck wont move! I can move the shifter but nothing happens!

Is the fluid level correct? Did you put the filter in? I know they are dumb questions but it happens. Did you have to disconnect any linkage to remove the pan and did you get it put back together correctly? Was your tranny acting up before you replaced the solenoids? If so you may have more than just a solenoid issue inside your tranmission. Another dumb question but did you plug the solenoids back in? Sorry I don't mean to answer your question with questions but you have limitted information about your vehicle listed.

Need to know how to change tranmission shift sensor?

Shift Solenoid maybe? Usually in the pan area. This requires dropping the tranny pan underneath and changing the fluid, filter, gasket, and solenoid(s). Prices for solenoids are cheaper online than in the parts stores. I'm not familiar with a shift sensor, but maybe I don't know about it. :)

High idol all the time& tranny problems

Check for vacuum leaks on the high idol. You have a speed sensor or wiring issue with the tranny. Will need to be checked somewhere with a computer to know for sure on the tranny.

Your shift solenoids are mounted in the valvebody of the transmission. That particular transmission is a 4L60E in case you need to know.

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.
