87 gt, automatic........3sfe motor.

it seems like its stuck in first gear and then slips in to neutral......but will continue to go.......i just changed the filter and fluid about three days ago. the first thing i checked was for leaks and the level and all seems good.

im getting it put into the garage and gonna lift it up to make sure the shifter cable is tight and working correctly. it does go into park and reverse just fine....will not go into lower or 2 tho.....just stays in first.

it will shift into second but only if i stick it into neutral, rev it and stick it back into drive. other then that it will stay in first and will go high rpms like its in neutral.

if i have to ill change the whole tranny but that means i have to pull the motor...

any other ideas what it might be? a bad band or something?
