IF 1st and 2nd gears are operating , NO 3rd or 4th gears would indicate the 3-4 clutch pack is the problem.

The 3-4 clutch pack in this tranny has been a weak point since the tranny was introduced in the 1980's.

You have not indicated a mileage figure on the vehicle?

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