Take it back the the transmission shop, it needs to be further diagnosed and probably rebuilt.

SOURCE: automatic transmission feels like it is in 3rd gear pulling out

Your trans is going into limp mode and that is why it is starting out in a higher gear.With the o/d light flashing there is a problem.Try this disconnect the battery for 5 min then start the car,before you do anything cycle the o/d button and see if it starts flashing.If it does then there is somekind of electrical problem.Could be bad wire or bad solenoid.If not drive it and start out with o/d off in low and shift manually through the gears and see if they are all there when you need to get in fourth hit the o/d button to shift and see if it does.They should also be able to get a code for the flashihg light to try to pin point.Hope this helps and thank for using fixya

SOURCE: transmission on 1995 Buick Century, slipping badly

Sir I would first change my filter. When you do you should be able to acertain if anything is wrong by what yuo find in your pan. I think your clutchs are probably bad, but with out being able to scan it I don't have any other ideas. I have been lucky a couple of time before and changing the filter solved my problem. Your car is in limp mode generally you have reverse and second gear. 1st gear and reverse use the same clutches, so I am wondering if maybe you have second gear only!

Sounds like you have a small bit of dirt or grit in the fuel system when accelerating it is drawn with enough force to cut off the fuel supply then is released when engine at Idle.
1 run liquid fuel line/injector cleaner in 1 tank
2 check fuel lines for debris
3 change fuel filters
4 have fuel tank flushed
here is trouble shooting order less expense to greater.

2006 chevy cobalt. the key will not come out of

If the wheel is turned in either direction, pull the whell in that direction and try getting the key out. If that doesn't do it, try shifting the automatic transmission from Park back to drive, and then to park again to disengage the interlock.
