i just bouhgt a 87 chevy pick up it has a 700r4 in it and it won't shift out of first gear,i changed the fluid and filter it was kinda dark and smelled a little burnt,but there was not a lot of metal in the pan.i have driven a couple of cars that had bad clutch paks but usaully when they will try to shift the next gear and the engine will just rev thru that gear like if you put it neutrul but this one just holds the gear,any ideas
The first thing I would check would be the governor. Pull it out and make sure everything moves freely. If you have a spare swap it out and try it. If its been swapper already for one from a turbo 350 it will not shift. Also pull the servo pack out and inspect it. This would be the easiest things to check without having to tear into the inside of the tranny.
