Most likely causes are low transmission fluid level, dirty transmission fluid, or clogged transmission fluid filter.

97 Chevy Z71 truck will not shift into third gear.

it could be the shift linkage being that both gears over there wont work

Your '01 Lincoln Town car might not shift gears because it is low on transmission fluid or because the transmission is damaged.

fluids are fine, no codes, and it wont shift past 2nd gear. any help?

no 998 trany has different sensors and diff shift points the computer wont no when to tell it to up shift or down shift

Speed sensor on Trans, or buffer behind dash... OR, any broken wires in this circuit. Very common problem on this and many other vehicles.

Is it an automatic or standard? automatic and fluid is not pumping when engine is running

im having the same problem now as we speak. i was told it was the shift solenoid located in the transmission.

did the clutch cable come off? (if its a manual) that or there is a problem with the transmission.

Stick shift or automatic? any other gears work?

You should check for codes first. it is an electronic transmission and changes gears based on information received from various sensors. If the throttle position sensor is bad, it will not shift gears correctly. mine wouldn't shift into second until 30 mph and wouldn't shift into 3rd until 55 mph.

If your car/truck is having problems shifting, it may be your transmition. You may want to get that checked out.

A more accurate description of the problem along with if its an automatic or manual transmission is needed.

Mainly because the C6 transmission only has 3 gears and no overdrive.

Nope...Maybe if you change out suspension parts...but your tranny and computer will NOT like the change. It wont know how fast it is rolling and when to shift its gears....I can see a "check engine light" in somebody's future....

transmission wont shift from low to high very good

check shift cable to transmission,it is either broke or stretched out !!!!

In the car there's a small hole by the shift gears, take cover off, we used a metal nail file To press down, this now lets you shift gears.

When not used, they do get stuck and hard to shift. I had this with my 93. I put it in neutral and forced it into 4 wheel low. After it went, it is now easier to shift into.
