    It has every single forward gear (including OD) when shifted manually?

    Going to bet the forward sprag is broken. Not uncommon on a 4L60E and will cause the exact issue you're finding. :nod:

    I've seen a few 2 door's that were barn door equipped but they're far and few between. Even more so these days of course.
