Default Shifting problems

Hey guys long time no see lol, but ive ran into a transmission related problem now.to start in the cab the shifter goes all the way to park and all the way first,but on the electronic end it's not going to park but will go all the to first and actually be in 1,2,D,R ...then it won't do anything going to park,.....now the the tranny end...it feels like it's hanging up between gears ,it starts off in second again,(stealership changed gov spring and pressure solinoid 2years ago) now it slips when you slam the pedal and it downshifts 1st gear now you have to let off the to shift now then it goes through the gears fine and drives fine just until you punch it then it just winds up lol,...sorry for the story but it's getting annoying now

I don't understand most of your post; what is " electronic end" ???
Having to let off to get it to shift is either going to be a TV cable adjustment or a probable band going in the trans. Did it trip a check engine lite? Do you still have Park function?

Sounds like you just need to adjust the shift cable. There is a "lock" clip on the cable under the power brake booster; release that, go under & pop the cable end off the shift arm; move the arm rearward all the way ( park position) & be sure the shifter is in the park position on the steering column. Reattach ( pulling the cable, don't move the arm! ) the cable on the trans, check the starting in park & neutral, if good re lock the clip on the cable.
Hopefully this cures your issues....

Did not work. The arm all the way back shows it in reverse on the dash so i assume now it's transmission related,my driveway is on an incline so when I put it in park(turned off) it rolls and it jerks and grinds like the park mechanism is half engaging?

Is the trans shifting normal other than this park issue? Sometimes when the front band wears out the adjusting anchor can fall into the valve body & block the park rod from engaging.... I'm out of ideas....

The trans will act fine once out of 1st but you have to bring the truck to like 3k then let off the gas and it will shift then be fine in other gears,but if you mash on the gas it just winds up.. Like it's losing pressure? I've had a lot of slipping issues lately and I changed the fluid so I'm not sure if it was a bad idea or not I heard bad things from changing fluid. And the trans has 142,000 original miles on it lol

Yes, its done! Changing the fluid isn't going to help ( or hurt ) a worn out trans.
This is EXACTLY what happened on my Black truck; your going to have to get it rebuilt sorry to say....
