I have the same problem.  No second gear. First shifts at redline, then I
lift throttle into third.  I posted this before but knowing this is a 20V
list I'm sure no one has an auto trans.  Any info would be appreciated as I
appologize in advance for being off topic.  I feel there is a screen plugged
or band loose but I want to know something before I drop it off at the all
TOO friendly Ammco Transmissions.  86 5000S 156K.
