what can be the cause of a no shift condtion? Manual shifting still has no effect. Trans stays in 1st n matter what you do. What should I do 1st?

Have you checked your trans fluid levels? When waws it changed last?

I found that mine sticks in shifting when the fluid got low or was real old. Just a thought.

Have these check: ECT/TPS/VSS sensors they are part of the transmission operation to include the shift solenoids in the tranny.

Do a fluid and filter change and see what happens

The VSS is at the tranny and ECT engine coolant temperature is somewhere near the thermostat housing
