    Won't shift out of 1st

    My car just recently started this,the car won't shift unless i get off the gas. And if I step on it hard it'll just drop back to first and redline. Does this mean the tranny is done?!?!?

    Throttle position sensor

    check fluid level-- and condition of fluid & filter
    If that doesn't do it--take to a trans. shop & let them check it with a Tech 2
    If they can't spot something--more than likely--it's toast---sorry--
