If you have good reverse and bad drive it is not a low fluid condition.Low fluid will cause a slip in reverse before it does in drive.The modulator only creates a throttle reference based off engine vacuum and will not affect drive ingagement.If you suspect a low fluid condition just add two more quarts and see if anything changes. Overfull will not harm the transmission and the worst thing that can happen is some may come out the vent.If you want to check the length of dipstick the take the bolt out of the detent cable and pull cable out of transmission while engine is running , when fluid stops coming out the detent cable hole it is at the proper level and you can remark stick if need with a file.I suspect you have a forward clutch problem.I cut my teeth on these transmissions 25 years ago.Good Luck!
Is the fluid level OK? You can check this with the engine running and parking break set. Gain access to the eigine compartment and find the dip stick for the transmission. Please be careful of moving parts when the engine is running. Pull it out and wipe it off with the clean towel. Install the stick and remove it and see if you have a level reading. If not, fill it with the correct Dex type GM fluid that may be stamped on the dip stick. You can ask for help at an auto parts store is you need assistance on the fluid.
If this is OK or your vehicle is not equiped with a transmissing dip stick, you might want to have the transmission serviced (Fluid and filter changed) The transmission shop can also advise you about the mechanical condition of your bands in your transmission and make adjustements if needed.
SOUND LIKE TRANSMISSION FLUID LOW OR YOU NEED A TRANSMISSION FLUID AND FILTER CHANGE.THE 4T40E OR 4T45E IF YOU DONT SEE TRANSMISSION DIP STICK.BEST TO DO A FILTER AND FLUID CHANGE.YOU NEED 7 QUARTS OF TRANSMISSION FLUID A NEW TRANSMISSION FILTER AND PAN GASKET.I WOULD BUY FILTER AND PAN GASKET AT DEALERSHIP.YOU NEED A LARGE DRAIN PAN TO CATCH TRANSMISSION FLUID.IF YOU HAVE A TRANSMISSION DIP STICK. BEFORE YOU FIRST BEFORE STARTING THE ENGINE CHECK TRANSMISSION FLUID LEVEL ON DIP STICK.SHOULD BE ON THE FULL MARK.IF NOT ADD FLUID TO FULL MARK.THEN CRANK VECHICLE LET IDLE UNTIL ENGINE HOT OPERATION TEMPERATURE ABOUT 10 MINUTES.THEN APPLY BRAKE PEDAL.THEN SLOWLY SHIFT TRANSMISSION SHIFTER THROUGH ALL GEARS 2 TIMES.THEN PUT TRANSMISSION IN PARK.CHECK TRANSMISSION FLUID LEVEL.IF NOT AT FULL MARK ADD TRANSMISSION FLUID UNTIL LEVEL CORRECT.
No, absolutely not. Check the transmission fluid level with the transmission dip stick. The oil level dip stick may not be the same length and the markings are not the same. Overfilling a transmission may cause damage. Do not have one then you need to get one. What has happened have you lost it?
You have to buy one, can possibly get from wrecking yard but first make sure it is the same transmission by calling dealership and asking what years have the same trani.......must be the same because otherwise the length could be different and you would not get correct reading. But you really need one.
