The transmission still has reverse and drive but it wont shift up when its in drive. I don't know what is wrong with it since i haven't had it looked at yet.

Thought transmission was bad, would not shift into 2nd gear, took to shop and all they did was replace the input/output sensors. Have not had any other problems with this truck. Now have 238,684 miles on it.
