The transmission has trouble upshifting at normal

Customer Question

the transmission has trouble upshifting at normal acceleration, but if i let off gas it will shift next gear....with the exception of overdrive, it never shifts to that gear during driving, which makes it run at higher RPM and limited speed
JA: How old is the transmission? Have you checked the fuel filters?
Customer: 2005 Escalade ESV with 185,000 miles... Haven't had any drive-train issues whatsoever....i haven't checked the fuel filters.... would that have to do with Tranny operations?
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: just started happening yesterday.... haven't done anything yet.....Did replace the Solenoid Pack couple years ago, that's been it.....kinda that same symptoms with the overdrive not engaging
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: transmission brake seems to have some play in as well....after putting Park vehicle still rolls few inches before putting Parking brake on
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Cadillac Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
