96' 12valve tranny problems

I have a 96 duelly 4x4 with a 47re that will not shift from 2nd to 3rd gear when the tranny gets warmed up inless I let off the go pedal.It shifts fine when you fisrt take off when the tranny is cold. It doesn't slip it just won't shift. Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks.

Are you sure it's 2->3 shift and not 3rd to overdrive?

Don't mean to Hijack but my 98 auto does the same thing but it is from 3rd to overdrive. Any ideas? I also found out my fuel plate has been removed! I have only owned the truck 6 weeks and have plowed snow in it quite a bit.

If you're just counting shifts, you are actually sticking in 3rd and not shifting into OD. Multiple things can cause this, but first to suspect is TPS since it can wear and give problems quite often. Your trans is controlled by a combination of electronics and hydraulic pressure, so you could have one or several problems. Only way to diagnose is combination of checking electronics and pressures. You'll need a factory service manual for this as the diagnostics for these trans takes many, many pages to cover. Geno's Garage is the most inexpensive place to find one of these (around $30 on CD).

mine seems to be working better since i adjusted the tv cable and put in a 3k gsk. i think it was just wanting to shift at the point that my engine started to defuel the tv was cranked and would not shift till just over 2k i moved it out little and shifts lower now. have not drove much since the changes but got my fingers crossed the the prob is solved.

Make sure your TV cable wasn't adjusted out too far (loose / slack) because that can cause worse trans problems like super high temps.

Have a friend help to see if the TV arm (on tranny) starts moving as soon as the accelerator is pressed at all. And also that at WOT, the arm moves to its fully open position.

Proper TV adjustment is pretty crucial.
