Your 98 pickup truck has no 1st or 4th gear, is that right?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
That is correct. It wont shift into 1st or 4th.
Expert:  Jerry Newton replied 1 year ago.

This points to a faulty 1-2 shift solenoid. I'd probably remove the pan and plan to replace both shift solenoids. They are side by side at the rear of the valve body, easy enough to replace if you can remove the transmission pan and put it back together again.
