Well it would do it before the new parts but it would always jump down into first with alittle more pedal

Hi what brand of new parts did you buy or where did you buy them from? I am thinking you have a bad new part or the 1-2 shift valve is sticking. Put a pressure gauge on the Governor tap and read the psi in drive at ilde and driving or a good scanner that will read Gov pressure.

Hi parts are brand name so hopfully good, you need to check Gov pressure at the port with gauge or with a scanner and go from there.

What year is your truck? The early 3rd Gens were notorious for hanging onto a little bit of governor pressure at a stop. It only takes about 8-10 psi of governor pressure to command a 1-2 shift if TV pressure is light. If you come to a stop and hang onto a little governor pressure, it may not downshift until TV pressure comes up a bit with throttle application (when you take off). Solutions are pretty simple.

I'm having the same issue , when I changed the transducer it took care of the codes , trans will start in 1st but when it shifts to next gear it will not downshift to 1st except manually , I suspect one of the many sensors that monitor speed or the wires connections, fooling the computer into that speed is faster than what it is going.I will let you know what I find on mine

Ok some I put the old solenoid and transducer back on and they worked good except for alittle slip in first gear adjusted the bands as well and now I have a major slip in all 4 gears so I'm pretty sure it just time to rebuild
