I know that if it will not stay in high gear or OD it may be your torque convert lock up shift solenoid. Or may be caused by the retaining plate being broken in the 5R55E automatic transmission, leading to a loose pressure control solenoid valve (EPC valve). Remove the valve body, check the retaining plate and the build date of the EPC valve and install new ones if necessary. A new valve body and intermediate plate should be installed if there is heavy contamination.
