We have a SC that sat for 7 years, we just drained the pan put in a new filter, and just refilled the fluid.

After getting the new engine to operating temp we went for a drive and it will not shift out of 1st. It goes in reverse fine too.

Could it be something mechnical?

Given my SC brother is on a budget -should we drain the entire trans or try some additive first?

Did you manually go to each gear, wait for it to begin to move, then back to park and then check the fluid level? Like mentioned check the TV cable, but you may be low on fluid also.
