Double check fluid level while engine running and warm. If it's full...?. A: No Fill to level and try to drive. A: Yes then ask a person to help to shift to drive and watch the shift cable.It pull the transmission shift handle or not...? If it move ou pull. it's time to rebuild. If it doesn't move. The cable slip off. hook it back on
(Not a mechanic) First thing to check is the transmission fluid level. If excessivly low it may not move. (Usually check trans fluid with transmission dip stick, while engine is idling and warmed up) Consult owners manual to verify procedure. If your fluid levels are normal or close to normal, you should call a transmission shop unless you are or know a good mechanic.
Assuming the pickup is an automatic, check the transmission fluid. The #1 cause for transmission slippage is lack of Automatic Transmission Fluid.
If the pickup is a standard shift, the pin that connects the shift to the transmission has likely broken. You would still be able to shift from the inside but the gears won't engage. A bad clutch is also a possibility but you would have noticed a burning smell prior to the clutch giving out.
The transmission is nearly dry. Add some transmission fluid! Automatic transmissions require oil pressure for the car to move, and if you don't have enough oil in it, it won't build up enough pressure to move the car
Hi, if it is an automatic transmission, it could be several things:
It could be really low on transmission fluid or the fluid may have leaked out. Do you see an reddish or reddish-brown fluid under the car? Check the fluid level by looking at the transmission fluid dipstick.
The torque converter (essentially a motion transfer device that resembles two fans facing each other) may be bad. As the engine spins, up, the fluid in the torque converter starts spinning and flowing and starts to 'spin' the blade on the transmissin side (it's called locking up the torqure converter). If there a malfunction in the converter, or no fluid, as noted above, no motion to the transmission.
Is the emergency brake stuck on?
Another issue might be the transmission linkage - when you move the shift handle to "D", there is a linkage that moves a lever on the transmission to change how fluid moves thru the transmission, etc. Check for a broken linkage between the bottom of the shift handle and the tranny. This is best done at a good auto repair shop or dealer.
If this is a manual transmission car, you probably have a worn out clutch plate or broken shift linkage. See a mechanic.
SCAN IT FIRST TO SEE IF YOU HAVE ANY TRANSMISSION CODE FAULTS.IF ALL IS GOOD.CHECK TRANSMISSION FLUID LEVEL.IF YOUR TRUCK HAS 100000 MILES ON IT HAVE TRANSMISSION FLUID + FILTER CHANGED AND THE BANDS ADJUSTED.ALSO HAVE MANUAL SHIFT CABLE ADJUSTMENT CHECKED.IF ALL IS GOOD YOUR TRANSMISSION FORWARD CLUTCH OR INPUT GEAR OR OIL PUMP FAULTY.
firstly it may not be just the fluid because if its driving normally in all forward gears it could be a reverse band failure
If you want to try its on one side of the transmission
its a long tube with a dip stick in it used to check the fluid level!
it will need to be in nuetral & at idle in normal operting temperature range with the hand brake firmly applied! b4 you dip it & see
what the level is
to dip it pull it out wipe it cleane then push it all the way back down the tube & pull it straight back out look at where the fluid is on the stick!
if your not sure do it all again till you have a good reading
id suggest that you just drive it to get it checked but dont get blocked if you cant back up!
Check your fluid level. If the fluid level gets low, the pump basically pumps the pan dry in which the trans. valve body has no fluid to direct to keep in engaged in gear. Check your fluid level while running at operating temp. in nuetral. If this checks out ok, the trans. clutches are worn out to the point of the trans. no longer has the ability to stay engaged.
