ocaasionally it will shift on it own but most of the time I had to put it into neutral then back into drive..i replaced the speed sensor and the abs sensor on the rear axle still no change , then i changed the transmission filter and the fluid, after this the truck abruptly went into gear but still would not shift from first to second , the transmission level would not read (i put in the required 4 quarts) so i added one more now it revs high and will not shift at all not even if I put it into neutral , however it does fine in reverse ..im hoping i do not have to replace the transmission ..any ideas anyone..

    The shift solenoid is bad; There are 2 components to be replaced at the same time. If there is/was metal shavings in your fluid/pan, you would be wasting your time to replace the components alone. If shavings the transmission needs rebuilt/replaced.

    There were no shavings in the pan , and that was my next task to do , which I considered doing when I had the pan off because both components were right there in my face. So the shift solenoid and the tranducer? and Thank you someone told me to add more tranny fluid but I wasnt sure I should...I appreciate you help so much Professor G

    U Bet, I have had problems with shifting after replacing, but the customer demanded to just replace parts, then of course it was my fault. Have a Great Day.
