It is a 92 loyale with a 4WD 3AT

I think it has finally happened,

1st- works okay except when going up a steep incline is shudders (like it is jumping out of gear) and maybe makes a grinding sound

2nd- works fine I think

And now the worst part:

D- if you start out in drive it refuses to shift out of first, if you put it in drive while moving it acts like it is in neutral, I haven't been able to get it in third at all

in earlier posts I replaced the bad modulator and I found a plastic half-ring piece in the tranny fluid pan, along with a hole in the filter.

do you think it has finally crapped out?

I'll bet its just a stuck governor, I had a similar problem, check this thread:

And the fix is detailed here:

If that dosen't do it, I've recently had good luck with some autotrans “snake oil�, the Lucas brand. Fixed up a ’86 K-car that wouldn’t move at all.

Hope that helps
Gary

P.S. watch out for a shim between the cover and the governor, the repair procedure doesn't mention it but mine had one.

I just test-drived it, that was it, works okay now.

I cleaned the governor and honed the edges.

now the only thing wrong is it shudders sometimes when it shifts out of first, the higher the throttle the higher the chance it happens I think.

thanks man.
