Q: Truck won't shift out of first gear - 1979 Chevrolet C10

Hello. There are several possibilities here: the vacuum modulator valve, the governor in the transmission, or possibly incorrect fluid level in the transmission. If you would like to have this checked, a qualified professional from YourMechanic can come to your car's location to inspect the shifting issue and advise on repairs.
