2002 4r100 wont shift past second. stuck valve ?

I'm trying to help my brother in law out. His 2002 f250,7.3, stopped shifting past second suddenly last week. This truck is low mileage and has no chips/programs/mods. It shifts fine foward and reverse, starts off in first then shifts smoothly into second. NO 3rd or OD. Trans temps are good and fluid looks fine.
After searching the forums I'm seeing that it looks like a stuck solenoid or stuck valve. Any advice on this before i drop the pan, like the location of the valve it might be. I'm very mechanicaly inclined, just not familiar with these transmissions.

Thanks a bunch for any advice,
Randy

Valve body is right up above the pan and filter. very easy and there's a write up here in the tech files on it.

I made my Samsung SGH-I997 send this.

I had the same thing happen at 407k. Fluid pink, shifted fine to 2nd. 3rd and OD went from occasionally to nothing over couple days. I was told by the expert John Wood my center section went out. He said it was a design flow that he has seen happen from 20k miles to 400k miles like mine. He's a super nice guy, he picked up the phone the first time I called. Good luck.

Not to hijack but what did it take to fix? Mine is showing similar issues.

Stuck 2/3 valve

For anyone that may like to know, it was a stuck 2/3 shift valve. Bought one online that has a little bit more clearence and that fixed it. Since then I've helped fix 2 others that the trans shop said "HAD" to be rebuilt. If your trans is low mileage, check this first...
