Question about 2006 GMC Sierra
Cant grab any gears. Fluid level fluxuates from really high to normal. No smoke , puddles or leaks of any sort. Happened suddenly no warning.124k 4.3L checked all fuses.
Try changing you transmition fluid and its filter first , if this doesn't in prove your bands in auto trans may need servicing or you may have faulty gear solenoids .you fluid should get higher as gets hotter this is normal , always check fluid after driving , do not over fill this is just as bad as underfull.

1st thing to do is test the system for codes, the problem is most likely a failed or stuck shift solenoid indside the trans, have you ever serviced the trans, sometimes a fluid and filter cahnge will cure these kinds of issues.

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

unfortunately if it is brown rusty color you have a serious problem! this usually occurs once you have burned up the clutch plates with in the core of transmission! honestly I do not aim to discourage you but your probably going to have to eventually change this transmission! if you have a strong aroma from the dip stick it is burned up!!!! I have change plenty of these over the years due to the same circumstances.Good luck and hope that it all works out for you,John

SOURCE: Power steering fluid leaking
It all depends on where the fluid is coming from. It could be a ruptured pressure hose, or a seal in the power steering pump. The 2 "dangers " are NO POWER STEERING and burning out the pump with no fluid. A short drive for repairs using " ARMSTRONG " will probably do no harm. Hope this helps
