When cruising in the city at light throttle it will not shift into 3rd it stays in second.

Friend said to check the spring on the detent cable...any other ideas? Also check engine light is on and I know that a faulty MAF or TPS sensor will cause shifting issues, would either of tese sensors cause the shift problems I am having? I am going to scan it next week to find out why CEL is on.
I know this is an old post, but did you ever diagnose the problem? I am having a similar problem. Tranny sometimes wont shift into 3rd unless I let completly off the gas or shift into neutral then back into drive and similarly will drop back into 2nd.
