Question about Cars & Trucks
Hot engine,cold or both>?
quarts? who a quarts gauge,
don't feel bad we had RCH , in the military. (xrated)
wont move is always 1 of 2 things.
1: engine stalled or almost no horse power (torque)
2: tranny MALF!
find out which first.? #1 fact to know.
for sure slush pump trannys that is always and issue.
slips too much, or too little, not in any manual gear box.
we know instantly when power is low (engine) every time.
my guess is engine power is near zero.
is idle below normal (800 hot)?
or too fast? idle?
evidence we need that. to wax smarter.
here is your first test:
1; start car select drive,or L, and step on gas (right foot)
2: does car move, sure no. but does RPM look right on engine.?
when the tranny slips the RPM rise and car dont move.
there is no longer a 1 for 1 relation ship engine to wheels
this is slip or as tranny men call it FLARE.
if you have no tachometer, then all this is hopless.
never drive a A/T with no Tachometer.
no way to communicate facts. see?
i have one in my drawer here,just for this case.
a mech, can do this by ear and is impossible to put in to words.

SOURCE: transmission - no reverse
i had to put a new trans in my 2000 jimmy about a year ago there is something inside called a "reverse hub" its made from aluminum and not very hard to break..when mine broke i was stuck trying to move in reverse and it heard a pop then a winding down noise and sure enough its the reverse hub to fix it i just had the trans rebuilt

Chances are is that the torque converter needs to be replaced. However, the transmssion on this vehicle are only serviceable by transmision shops. No regular mechanic will open up the transmission. When the torque converter fails (clutch and plates shutters to small pieces) the debri flows in the transmision thereby potentially destroying the gears and/or clogging the filter and pump. Go straight to a reputable transmission shop and let them correctly diagnose the transmission.
