2003 Chevrolet Impala won't shift to second

I have an 03 Chevy impala and the current problem i am having is when i’m driving the car wont switch into second. the rpms just clime high an it sound like i’m in neutral rimming the engine up. i have lots of people tell me its the transmission but had a few tell me it could be the timing. do you have any ideas or have any similar issues

Timing ? Not a chance that is your problem. You describe classic transmission problem. Find an independent shop. And those that said timing, don’t ask them any more questions.

thats what i was afraid of… so i guess my next question would be do you think a change of the fluids would help at all

At this point… unlikely. Shifting poorly can often be helped with a fluid change. Not shifting into 2nd won’t likely be cured.
