Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

 

What happens if you leave the truck in drive and try to take off? Does it take off in second or third gear?

 

Let's check for fault codes. Cycle the key from off to on three times ending with it on and watch the digital odometer display. Don't crank the starter, just off to on. The codes start with a P and have four numbers, there may be more than one stored. Write down any that you see and post them here.

this unit will not print out on the odom.... it must be scanned... i have a scanner for the commings engine but not the truck.... i just drove the truck, when shift lever is pulled down to first its in first, it shakes like its has a load on it, start slow move to 2nd, then its fine.... 3/od fine/ rev fine.... stard out in drive and it creeps a little but doesnt seem like its locked in gear

Has the check engine light come on? Almost all parts stores will read codes for free in the parking lot with a code reader. Do you have a big chain parts store like Autozone that you could run by and see if any codes are stored in the powertrain control module?

 

I see you opened another question asking Chris if he was working on your trans question. If you'd like to wait for him to come online I can send him a link to this question if you'd rather work with him again.
