94 caddy sedan deville 4.9 transmisson wont engage into any gears

If you are sure the fluid level is full, the filter could be leaking pressure or not allowing fluid to pass thru. There may not be enough fluid in the valve body to make the transmission function.

Where do I check my transmisson fluid?

Fluid Level Checking Procedure for all Transmissions without a Dipstick:

  1. The transmission temperature must be between 30°C and 50°C before checking can begin. Use the DIS or the MODIC to determine the transmission temperature.
  2. The vehicle must be level and without load. With the engine running, switch on the air conditioning. This will increase the idle speed and ensure that all oil passages in the transmission are filled with oil.
  3. Step on the brake firmly, apply parking brake fully and move the selector lever through each gear position, pausing briefly in each gear.
  4. With the engine running and the selector lever in Park position, remove the filler plug located on the transmission (see picture for location). If a small stream of oil runs out, the fluid level is correct.
  5. If no oil runs out when the filler plug is removed, the fluid level is too low. Add oil until it starts to overflow.
  6. With the engine running, reinstall the oil filler plug and tighten to proper torque. (Refer to section below for proper tightening torque)
#1 is the drain and #2 is the filler

Transmisson problems

Try checking the transmission fluid level first to see i it is full and then look at changing the filter and gasket on the transmission and if you still have you will need to take it to atransmission shop to have it loked at, but try the things I mentioned first okay.

Problems with the transmisson

Whit the engine ruining check your transmission fluid level
is possible than you have a transmission fluid leak and don't have enough fluid to work properly. NOTE: Do not ever fill it because that can case your transmission to wear out faster.
And make sure the car is on a level place and the engine is running while you check the level.
