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: my car wont move forward or reverse

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.

Driving up hill in my 1994 Oldsmobile 98, my transmission suddenly stopped moving forward. reverse in my car still works just fine, what should I check?


First check the selector rod or cable to be sure it selects the right gear.
Check fluid level as well. The planetery gears may be shot!

Diagram 4r7ow transmission


For there to be no oil on the transmission dip stick there must be a big leak in the box somewhere. Pouring in oil at one end will only be a waste of money until the leak is fixed. You will probably be looking at 1 1/2 gallons to fill the transmission. Check the coolant for oil in the water or get underneath and look for a large oil slick under the car.

Transmission fluid hose burst, fixed it, add fluid now the car won't move...


Two litres? Unless you are outside the USA, transmission fluid generally comes in quart containers. If you only added 2 quarts, yes, it's very possible the fluid level is low. However, you don't want to add too much. There should be a dip stick for checking fluid level. Run the vehicle until the engine is good a warm, about 15-20 minutes, and then check the fluid level. Add as needed. But remember, don't add too much. Add a little at a time, as you get close to full.

Transmission kicks hard when put in drive


The problem is the transmission I'd check the fluid levels. Shops are notorious for not filling fluids to the proper levels. If that isn't the problem which it may not be Then some1 did a very bad job on the trans. The fact that you have been having problems from day 1 is not good. Even so that could be a low fluid problem so I'd check that first. Hope this helps.

98 Dodge Durango goes into gear but wont move?


How much transmission fluid did you put back in. If you didn't put enough it might not get the pressure it needs to change gears. If you put too much then it creates bubbles and foams and it will cause big problems as well. The 42/44RE transmission takes 12 pints (6 quarts) if the transmission was completely overhauled, torque converter was replaced or drained, and cooler was flushed. The 46RE takes the same amount. When adding transmission fluid you only bring it to the minimum level. After that you drive around and let it get warmed up for a while then when you check it, it should be at the max level.

98 Ford Explorer won't move in reverse


Sometimes it may just be the fluid level, if you have drive , drive it around the block a few times, then park it on level ground and hold the brake and go through all the gears slowley, two times. put it in park, open the hood and check the fluid level, the dip stick in the back by the fire wall, take it out and clean it, read the stick. SOME need to be checked in Nutral, if this is the case do so but be carefull that the truck has stopped moving when put in nutral!!! if it is low only put in the right fluid, and a little at a time, while it is still running DO NOT OVER FILL !!!!!!!! Also sometimes it is a SENSOR problem, and in most cases not to hard or costly to replace.
