Lost 2nd gear

My 01 PSD 2X4 with 155K on the clock WONT shift into second gear....

While comming off a light it will run up the RPM's in 1st and hold...you have to let off the pedal and the tranny shifts to 3rd and is fine from there till the next time you stop. Never heard any grinding or any vibration
We dropped the drain plug and checked the fluid for metal shavings and there were no shavings. It seems like something electronic isnt letting it shift into second its weird. Other than that the tranny runs fine....could it be a valve body? vacume line? I took it to a local trans dealer and they looked at it and told me to just get a new tranny ($3,600). :squish

Mine did the same thinsg. Mechanical diod on second gear. just lest loos for not reason @ all. Call one of the reputable trans builders and they can get you going for bout 3800 and it will be a fully built performance trans not a stock rebuild with minor updates. Good luck. Feel free to PM me with any ?s about who i chose and why.....
