My shifter handle goes all the way down but only hit N dose not go Drive or 3 2 1 gears

Are you pressing the brake pedal when you switch gears? If you are, there might be a problem with the transmission. Go to your car dealer using a different car and tell them to look at it. Or just use a tow truck and tow it to a mechanic.

Speedometer dose not work in my 1993 chevy extended cab 2WD

check the cable first. It connects into the driver side rear of the transmission tail. Remove the cable from the transmission...
you shoud see a short section that was farther into the trans, and that piece will go into a small plastic gear.
check those for damage.
the end of the cable should spin freely with fingers.
if not spinning, broken off, or the plastic gear is damaged, it's a pretty easy fix.

The speedometer is not reading at al and at the same time it won't upshift out of low gear

two problems you may is the speedometer sensor may not be working thus the transmission won`t know what gear its suppose to be in.the other is the transmission may have gone into back up mode as the tcm may have detected a transmission problem.have the tcm and the pcm checked for codes to help find the problem.

  3. Unplug the electrical connection from the vehicle speed sensor (speedometer gear).

Car acts like it is changing gears from time to time

There will be a dipstick at the back of the motor, should be on the left side near the brake system. The car should be warm and placed in drive with e brake engaged. Pull dipstick out and look for the warm mark. The fluid should be at that level.
