Re: my 99 chevrolet suburban starts but won't drive
9 times out of 10 it is low on Automatic trans fluid. Please check the fluid and the condition of the fluid. If it is brown and smells burnt, but the trans operates ok after toping up, get the fluid and filter changed. If the trans slipps ( motor reves and car dowes not go) it is time for a rebuild

trannsmission solienoids may be sticking, try some tranx, you can get at the parts store. this stuff is great. it might take a day or two but it works. for the other truck, did you have the front brakes checked, they can bind up, when you back up it frees them up.also, but not probable for 2001 check the brake hoses, they can collapse from the inside, not letting your brakes release all the way good luck
It could be the linkage. Jiggle the shifter to see if that helps. When it goes in reverse the trans opens other valves to put trans fluid (under pressure) to the reverse unit. If the trans has not had a trans service every 30k or so the fluid could get dirty ans gummey. There are trans additives can claim the desolve the gum. I have donethat before and it has helped my trans. They claim no damage to the trans. - I tried it
If it has auto 4x4. which will have 4 push buttons on the dash it will take auto trac fluid that you will need to get at your local GM dealer. A regular transfer case will take Automatic transmission fluid.
