700r4 tranny not shifting out of 1st
 
Hi guys, I just started working on a 1987 Camaro and the 700r4 tranny will not shift out of 1st gear. It shifts smoothly into drive but no matter how high the engine revs the tranny doesn't shift. I've searched the forums and seen that the governer should probably be the first thing I look at, is there anything else I should look for?

Why don't you think that is the problem? Just curious. :drunk:

Because I would assume that if it was the governor the engine would be limited as to how high it can rev. ... of course we all know what happens when you assume.

The governor controlls the shift points in the trans, not the engine speed. If the governor is stuck or if the gear is stripped, it won't shift at all. Pull the big round cover off and pull the gov out and take a look, or maybe take it to a trans shop and ask them to ck it.
