Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose). Experts aren't employees / agents of Just Answer. We are independent service providers using the Site to sell their Expert knowledge to Customers. I strive to provide EXCELLENT 5 STAR service, let me know what's needed from me so your pleased.

It is rare to never a solenoid issue can cause loss of all forward gears in the 5R55 transmission. This is normally to blame on the linkage out of adjustment, or a forward clutch failure. Below is a link to all the things which can cause no Forward.

To diagnose this prior to doing any repairs you need to check the codes and have a line pressure test done, then a air test on the clutches. See the link below.
