Had a new transmission droped in, it was tested at the shop before it was put in. It will shift into reverse and when it is in drive it will not shift out of first into second or drive. Thanks for your help.

U-pull-it ...it started doing the same thing in the test drive..bought Trans #2 another transmission place in Little rock, bought complete rebuild kit from T.P.S.

    did you take it to a trans shop and see if they can adjust the cable for proper shifting. it is easier to diag in the vehicle than out of the vehicle.
