    No previous problems shifting. It went into gear and went forward a few feet. No other noises. However, I think I have determined that it is a brake/caliper problem. I drove it in my yard and it would not do it again, but when I press the brake, one seems to be "sticking". Thanks for the help!

    Before you hit the panic button.......the first time you put the selector in drive, did the truck move forward at all, or did it just sit there like a flower pot?..Then the second time, what happened?



    Were there any noises when you shifted into reverse, or into drive?



    Did you happen to notice if the truck was having any other difficulties shifting before this happened?



    Please give me as many details as you can....

My trail blazer will shift to park reverse and neutral but not to drive


Have someone check your motor mounts and your shift linkage for wear, binding, and or damage from car accident or from foreign object under the car.
Problem should be in one of those areas.

Clanking noise coming from Allison Transmission on a 2001 Chrevrolet Silverado 8.1 Liter engine


this does sound like theres a loose line tapping the engine/frame,during warm up the engine idles faster which could make it vibrate faster causing the the clanking or tapping noise,if this has started after trans fluid change,then check the lines running from the trani to radiator sometimes the service person might bang into something causing plastic clips that hold the lines to break,try getting under it and have someone start the truck and listen to see where it's coming from also hold the lines & see if the noise stops,the service guy could have unbolted something & never put the bolt back causing the clank ex.line may have a clip holding it thats bolted to the trani pan ?good luck
