97 psd that wont shift from 2-3. help

I have a 97 psd that will only shift into third if you rev the engine high then let off the accelerator. After that shift, the other shifts are fine. I have replaced trans fluid and filter. Old fluid did not smell burnt. I cleaned the vss and unplugged all electrical connections to trans and added die electric grease and replugged. Nothing has helped. Could this be a solenoid pack problem. The truck has 189k. I dont want to take it to a tranny shop. any help will be greatly appreciated. thanks

Will it manually shift through the gears? It is possible that you have a intermediate seal on it's way out

It does manually shift. Is that a good sign??

Yep that's a good sign. Sounds like maybe the 2-3 shift spool in the valve body is sticking
