I replaced the solenoid. When I pulled the old one out I noticed that one valve was out and one was in. Is this common?

If the transmission works do not worry about it. Replacing solenoids is rarely the cause, but one in and one out may have been what gear it was going to.

It was not shifting from first to second, the truck is not worth much has had mice inside. I was told that the solenoids could be bad, so I replaced both while I had the pan off, but it is still off. If it is more then that I will put up for sale for parts and get another truck, but if it normal then I will put back together. Wife and I are stuck for three days if it snows and the vehicle is good to take up town if needed.

Not sifting can be a bad clutch or seals not necessarily solenoids if you have tried it shifting manually it may work if not it has to be scanned to see if that is truly the problem or something else. If mice it may have eaten the harness up so there is nothing comeing to it power wise. Or damaged the harness in some other way
