Currently it shifts 1st, 2nd, and reverse but sometimes ( more often than not ) when it shifts to 3rd there is nothing there. as if it goes into neutral. The truck has 4.88 gears and 37" tires. The speedometer works but is not calibrated for the gear/tire mods. Also the gear selection indicator lights don't always work or don't work correctly. Does this look like a minor electrical/servo/calibration problem or is it more likely a major internal issue?
Have you pulled the valve body to ensure all the valves are moving without obstruction? Sometimes, even the smallest bit of debris can keep the tranny from shifting.
