HelloCustomerand welcome to just answer.

can you tell me what the code number is?
Is it possible that you broke one of the shift solenoids while removing the pan?

Ok Diego,

Here is what you can do.
you can take your truck to the transmission shop and pay them to replace the faulty component, unfortunately I can't recommend anyone around your location.

The second option is for you to go to the GM dealer or some auto parts store and purchase a 2-3 shift solenoid. (make sure it fits your vehicle) and a transmission pan gasket.
Then you can remove the pan again and replace the solenoid yourself, which would take you about 5 min after you have removed the transmission pan. You dont have to be a transmission specialist to replace the solenoid. it is easy.
I assume though, you are the one that replaced the filter and the fluid the first time?

Tell me what sounds better?
