Hello, the shifter wont move past reverse or the shifter moves ok but no forward gear ranges at all? Does the fluid level look full and does it smell burnt or black? Any warning lights on or a diagnostic check for codes done with a scan tool?

The auto is buttons on the dash if you get nutrual it goes in to reverse but not forward gears all the time if you get first some times it will change other times not

Ok so when it does engage forward gear range, it has all its gears? Transmission fluid level and condition is ok? No warning lights are on?

Trans fluid been filled no if we get first my change gears or may stay in first ,warning on dash said gear box

Ok, thats what I was thinking, an internal concern, it sounds like an internal mechanical failure. A diagnostic check of codes with a scan tool will tell more in regards ***** ***** area of the transmission to check, Such as a shift solenoid, along with some probable gear ratio fault codes. But from what you are describing, it sounds like the transmission will need to be removed and overhauled or replaced.
