    Is the 94 an electric shift (700R4) of a TH350/400

    If it is a 700R4, it may be a solenoid in the tranny, if you open it to fix that, you might consider a rebuild depending on the mileage.

    The older trannys may have any number of problems preventing shifting, but those are usually near the end of its life.

    all together the tranny was dropped but only to figure out what the problem was. put a presssure gauge on it and see what ur readings are. i dug my receipt out of my file it cost me around 375. more of a pain then anything:hammerhead:

    THe price difference between a used, and a new tranny in my 98 was only a few hundred dollars. I went with the new because you don't know how the guy before you drove it.
