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 manual transmisson and I can shift into 1st, 2nd 3rd 4rth but not 5th or reverse

The only way in a manual transmission to not be able to shift into some gears but not others is that the syncronisers are bent inside the transmission.

Its feels like it slips out of first then shifts hard into 2nd, then some times it feels like its slipping 3rd to 4rth

Not too good. The least expensive change you can make is the oil. Go to a Mr Lube and have them do a hot change and put an additive into it. The new oil will help the clutches to grab and the additiv e will free up the valve body to shift properly. If that doesn't work you either need to rebuild it or replace it with a used one. Sometimes you can get lucky and find factory GM rebuild at the wrecker that will give you years of good use. The key is fresh oil and change it after the first 20k, then it's probably good for 60 more.

The shift from 2nd to 3rd gear lags

My feeble understanding of DCT says that the computer monitors the speed of the engine, speed of the car and gas pedal input. I would suggest you test the variable resistor on the gas pedal to see if it is worn.

When pushing down on the gas in 3rd 4th and 5th gear has a small

Valves need adjusting and/or oil in the engine

With such limited information i can almost put my thumb on it being the valves - they are compressed using special tools, aka - leave it to the pros and save yourself a headache!

(In 1rst and 2nd the engine rpm is low, in 4th and 5th it is much higher making the knock more noticeable)

Shift prob from 1rst to 2nd

This often happens because of faults in the gearbox. If it automatic transmission can also be caused by a faulty throttle position sensor.
