It started by not changing from 2nd gear at all. I chahged speed sensor and that didnt help. I unplugged battery for a while and it started shifting but if you put shifter in low gear (1st) it trys to go in first and reverse. It will go forward but it acts like its in a bind and when you let off the gas it trys to back up. It was doing this before I unplugged the battery. If you put it in drive or overdrive it shifts fine but sometines I think it pulls out from a stop in second gear. Any info would be greatly appreacciated

In a case like this you need the help of a scanner
have to check for tranny codes and also scan data
to check what the tranny doing and when
this way you can determine if its a sensor and or solenoid
and if its a tranny failure
Need a tool or a tester CHECK IT @
