when it revs up does it eventually drop in gear


no...I have to release and allowed it to shift through 2nd and 3rd

vacuum line?

Not positive on that trans but I don't think it shifts on a vacuum I believe it is electronic shift so it may be a sensor has gone bad call a autoparts store like AutoZone and ask them if they're scanner may be able to read a code for the trans shift code a lot of the major auto parts store will scan your car for free
