I just purchased this 1994 1500 step side when i first got it the pickup would shift in 1st 2nd and reverse now it only shifts in 3rd and reverse i bought it knowing about the tranny problems planing to replace it but then it changed the way it shifts thought maybe it might be something other than the tranny itsself thanks for any info
i believe it has the 4l60e
and also when i manully put it into first it acts kinda like im trying to power stall or like holding brakes and trying to drive

Welcome to the site. I've heard of similar problems when low on fluid or when the fluid has never been changed. Start by changing the fluid, ( Dex II or III ATF) and filter. Drain the fluid into a clean container in case there is metal shavings in there. It might cost a few bucks but it might solve the problem. I've removed a tranny once that had Wood Shavings in it, (don't ask me how or why or who or etc..) If you decide to fix it,, unless you re-build tranny's for a living, I'd suggest talking to your local transmission guy.

Welcome and congrats on your new ride! Hopefully, you'll get your tranny issues fixed easily and as cheaply as possible.
