HI,
I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question.
I am not clear on whether this is a manual or automatic transmission, which makes a difference on diagnosis.
If automatic, I also need to know whether the shift lever is stuck or you are referring to the transmission itself.
If the transmission, this is usually a faulty solenoid pack that is bolted to the top of the valve body

Hi , thanks for getting back to me. it is an auto and the lever isn't stuck, the transmission just doesn't change from 2nd. It starts in 2nd and drives in 2nd.BTW is it doing more harm continuing to drive it?
thanks

HI,
Ok, this is likely the solenoid pack mounted to the valve body.
Yes, it can cause damage to the bands and clutches if you are driving any faster than 25-30mph with it.
