no it made no noise, just failed to accelerate further. i checked the fluid level, it was normal . park keeps it securely in park, but putting it in rev, drv, 1, or 2 ( overdrive on and off) it gives no response, i was expecting at least a "lunge" or some indication i was switching gears, but it's like it's all neutral. i had a friend watch as i changed gears for the linkage to move and they said the linkage is moving.

Hi. Before you do anything, check the transmission fluid level with engine running and in park. If the fluid is at the right level, there are 2 levels, a cold and a hot level. If the fluid is low then simply add fluid to correct level and check for leaks in hoses,transmission pan, external oil cooler if installed and axel seals. Normally fluid levels will not go down except if there is a leak somewhere. If the fluid smells burned, then you have most likely will need an overhaul as the tranmission has overheated due to high loads (pulling a trailer in hot temps, or simply because of age and the resultant excessive slippage of the friction plates.
However if the fluid level is good and fluid smells ok then gave the computer code read. Your problem could simply be a loose or corroded wire to or from the transmission causing erratic shift symtoms.
Hello, This could easily be the CV joints. You were in the vacinity of your problem when you changed the hubs. Although the front differential should be checked for gearlube level, the trans fluid is not going into your differential.
You can siphon out the excess trans fluid. The differential is in a floating mode without being engaged, but the CV joints can easily make noise while not being engaged.
I have had a number of clients with 4x4's swear they had problems with the front end. But many have written back to me and let me know thier problem was the front driveshaft U-joint. This is especially true for noises seeming to come from the passengers front side. As the front U-joint is dead center on the vehicle, it is to the right of the Driver so the driver thinks the noise is coming from the far right side.
Check your transmission fluid level, as recommended in the Owner's Manual. Also, if your car is equipped with power steering, check the fluid level in the power steering reserve.
If all fluids are at recommended levels, see if you can locate the noise. If it is in the engine compartment, try to determine if the noise is coming from any of the serpentine belt pulleys.
Sometimes the bearings on air injector pumps fail in higher-mileage vehicles, first causing a "whining" noise, and ultimately resulting in the serpentine belt "chirping" or squealing on acceleration. Best you can do is make sure all fluids are at recommended levels, then try to pinpoint the source of the whining noise for further diagnosis.
Check your fluid levels in your gearbox, top up if low. Sounds like your layshaft bearings are worn, indication of high mileage or harsh acceleration in first. Live with it as only sure way to resolve is replacement gearbox, or to have yours repaired, which is a gearbox off job
If not then it could be a trans issue. Check the fluid again to make sure it is level. put the truck on level ground and with it running and in park check the fluid. Add fluid if needed to bring to level. Then test drive. If it still does the same check the fluid level after driving to see if it REALLY hot. If so it could be a sign the tranmission is failing.
Onyl other thing i can think of have you replaced the tranmission filter? if it was really clogged up it may, long shot, cause what you are saying as well.
