I have replaced actuator, clutch ( since 150000) and the tcm was soak and wet. Know my issue is that it will go through all the gear after relearned but in a few mile it will skip 2nd gear all together. I took off the shifter motor cleaned both sides still no change. My question should get a used one or maybe get new brushes installed, any suggestions at a loss.

Will it go into 2nd gear when using the paddles, or shifter in the manual mode?
If it does, I would not think the motors are the problem. Have you done the relearn procedure?

It will go into 2nd gear after the relearn but next downshift or upshift will miss 2nd all together. It happens in auto and also using paddle

Starting to sound like a trip to the dealer.
Before you do that... might want to check all the wires to the
shift actuator, gear shift motors, possibly do a battery disconnect
for an hour then reconnect. If its a gremlin in there running around,
better you find it first!
