Just got the car on the road and while driving I noticed it wouldn't shift, it goes into 1st just fine but won't go to second or 3rd, I tried manually shifting but still nothing, with and without over drive on I started in d1 and went to d2 and the drive, but still nothing, reverse and 4wd both work properly and so does 1st gear but it will no go to 2nd or 3rd any ideas? Also the fluid is at the proper level and is still good

It could be a list of things. Start small and take it to someone with a diagnostic machine, a good one that can read tranny codes. If its just a speed sensor the machine should pick it up. It could also be your throttle valve cable or the throttle valve in the transmission itself.
