700r4 wont hit 3rd

My step sons has a 90 chevy pick up. his truck pulls stong in first second but when it changes to 3rd it wont go and then its like it goes all the way back to first befor it picks back up. i can put the truck in 2nd and it willl hold the gear. soon as u put it in drive r over drive the rpms go through the roof. reverse pulls good too. anyone have any ideas.

oh, I imagine the 3-4 clutch pack was going before it quit...

on occasion I have used the analogy involving my mother. One day she was fine, the next day she was dead from a ruptured artery, just like that.

Depending on the mileage on that transmission, you have more repairs than a bad clutch pack inside.

my 700r4 failed for the same reason... a large percentage of the hard parts inside required replacement...

it was a LONG drive across town.. doing 55mph @ 5000 rpm in 2nd gear :>
