One more thing, if I were to manually shift through the gears by taking it from 1 to 2 to D, and it work, could that confirm that the servo(s) be bad as well??

I hate computer controlled stuff
nope on the solenoids.....

both solenoids need to be 'on' for first gear. That is why I made the comment about the PCM telling the tranny to be in first gear. Unless there is something else happening that you are not aware of.

If both solenoids are clogged up , then the tranny would stay in first gear. If the solenoids are clogged up , then something is wrong internally with the tranny.

This vehicle still backs up fine ?? RE: reverse works?

Dont worry how old you are... it is the mileage on your body that adds up.
