Hey guys.. so 95 g20 van 5.7.. yesterday started van.. engine light came on ... Idle seemed fast.. no power in OD.. shifted manually to 1st and no problem.. won't shift by itself. Have to shift manually.. even then seems to only have 2nd and drive.. over drive will not ingage.. and in first gear shift manually to 2nd.. no shift.. any idea?

Get the codes.

The 4L60e will only have manual 2nd and 3rd gear when it loses power or the PCM quits controlling the solenoids. Both shift solenoids off puts the transmission in 3rd gear and it has circuits which over-ride the solenoids and force manual 2nd when you put the gear selector in 1st or 2nd gear.

So, check fuses and the wiring.

Had a 95 Tahoe a couple months back doing the exact same thing. Ignition switch (electrical part) was the problem.
