Follow this steps and see the diagram attached.God bless you

First, check the transmission fluid level and condition. If you don't know how to do it, here is an illustration:
How to check the automatic fluid
With the engine idling and transmission in "Park" (some car may have different procedure, refer to the owner's manual) remove the automatic transmission dipstick and wipe it out with the clean lint-free cloth. Insert the dipstick back fully and then pull it out again. Check the fluid level; low level may indicate a transmission leak. Look at the fluid very closely. It helps if you drip the fluid onto a white paper to be able to see the fluid condition. The transmission fluid should be clean and transparent, without any metal filings or black flakes. The new fluid usually comes red. Over the time, it become more brownish, but it shouldn't be very dirty or black. Look at the image. Try to smell the transmission fluid; It should not have a burnt smell.
All this may seem difficult, but when you check few similar cars, you'll be able to see the difference. If the transmission fluid is too dirty or black, or smells burnt, it's better to avoid such a car.
Keep in mind, however, that some modern cars don't have the transmission dipstick and require special procedure performed in the auto repair shop to check the fluid level. In this case, the only way to check the transmission is on test drive. 700r4 transmission problems  - 68c27b4c-81ab-4513-9708-389569a89182.jpg

SOURCE: Buick 2000 Le Sabre-transmission does not engage in any gear.

Try unplugging the electrical connection on the transmission to lock it in 3rd. It might get you moving. Although the transmission is going to need rebuilt or replaced.

SOURCE: 99 dodge ram 4x4 w 360 engine trans has only 1st gear and reverse

Are you saying you put in a new but used tranny and it still dosent go out of first gear? Or are you saying you replaced a tranny line? If its the tranny you replace and first is the only gear you may not have adjusted the shifting linkage correctly. Put the truck in park and loosen the linkage on the tranny and slidr the rod on the tranny back and retigten and try that

Transmission shifts very hard

Check your transmission fluid level as soon as possible.
If you are experience hard transmission shifts, it is possible that the only problem is a low transmission fluid level. Low transmission fluid level can change the operating pressures of the transmission as well as reduce the amount of lubricant present between the clutches and bands and raise transmission temperatures. All these things can cause hard or jerky shifting. You need to identify why the transmission has a low fluid level and refill it as soon as possible.

Why won't transmission engage after an oil line blew?

Most likely the fluid level is low. You need to check the fluid level with the vehicle running on most models and add as neccessary

Transmission fluid in radiator could lines be switched

no way you need a new rad to solve this one the internal tube has split or broke ,just disconnect the pipes and seal the rad connections up with a couple of blanking plugs to stop the water leaking out then the transmission pipes you make a nice sort square round out of some copper plumbing pipe and connect this to the transmission pipes from the gearbox run in front the AC rad and this will save you from buying a new rad which the last time i bought one for this motor was about 550 euros as i couldnt one made by a recon company only original part from deal;er

Yeah Brother, those old square bodies are still neat. I have a '74 I put on a 4x4 chassis and 6.2 diesel w/overdrive automatic(700R4). Most likely you have a TH350 turbo trans and on the side front is a vacuum actuated can that operates the shift of the tranny. Any vacuum line connected to the carb or intake manifold will supply vacuum to it. It's originally a steel line with rubber connector tubes on the ends. Check the tranny fluid after warm up, in park, and be sure it has enough fluid in it. Luck Bro.

first thing is to check the fluid, if the fluid is ok then you need to check the transnmission line pressure, best guess is the pump inside the transmission is going out but you will have to have the pressure check before we can make sure that is the problem....good luck

Need vacccuumdiagram for 77chev 350 engine loosing transmission fluid to i dont know where not leaking on ground

Hello shanebuerman: My name is Roger and I will help you. If you are using transmission oil and see no leaks on the ground I would look at the transmission as the source of the problem. If you have a turbo-hydromatic 400 transmission look at the modulator valve. It will be on the passenger side of the transmission and have a vacuum line attached to it. This will be a metal line that runs over the top of the bell housing. The other end will be connected to the intake manifold at the rear of the carburator. When the diaphram ruptures the fluid is sucked out of the transmission and burnt in the engine. Pull the vacuum line from the valve and if there is any oil at the vacuum port you will have found the source of fluid loss. If you have a 700R4 overdrive transmission? and no external leaks.Look at the radiator as the source of the problem. The transmission coolers were known to leak in the radiators. This model transmission does not have a modulator valve. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer. THank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

I had the same problem with my 2002 Neon and the transmission fluid was mixing with the coolant. You cant fix it yourself...Either pull the radiator and take it to a rad shop or replace the rad as I did. If the coolant gets into the transmission you will also need a transmission flush.The fitting you are talking about has come loose from the transmission cooler tank inside the rad.Its a common problem with neons I got a new rad from NAPA and changed it myself, and it was a lot of work. Good luck. The manual also says to replace the flexible tranny lines.

The filter might be clogged/old and the cold makes the fluid heavy. With the 700r4 transmission its always best to let it warm up for a few minutes.
