What would cause the transmission to only
have 1st gear. When I accelerated up to
about 30 mph it still has not shifted but
when I let off the gas the trany shifts into
neutral until I come to a complete stop or rev
the engine. I have changed the shift
solenoid's and nothing changed

It could be that your transmission fluid is just low. Check fluid level. If fluid is OK, it's probably a faulty transmission control solenoid or speed sensor, and you should have this diagnosed by a trans pro.
